12/13/11: I had been out doing a little Christmas shopping when I thought I would drive through KFC for a little snack. I don't think there's one by work, so it had been a while since I had chicken from there. Although I spotted the much maligned but extremely tasty Double Down sandwich on the menu board, I was just a little peckish, so I opted for an order of Popcorn Chicken. And when I got to the window and was asked about sauce, I went with barbecue.
      I stopped in the parking lot after paying to dig my snack out of the bag, and put the container of chicken down between the seat and the emergency brake handle so I could have easy access without holding it or worrying that it would spill all over the car, but what to do about the little bucket of sauce? To hold it while dipping would require two hands, so I couldn't do that while driving.
      I looked at my dashboard and I have a little drawer that they put in instead of an ash tray. I never could figure out what to use it for, but just then I realized that it was about the perfect size to hold my sauce container. As I opened the drawer and snuggled it in, a line from our favorite Christmas movie, "Die Hard", popped into my head. It was when John McClane was tying the fire hose around his waist and was about to jump off the top of the building when he mutters to himself (and I'm paraphrasing) "what the **** are you doing? This is bad idea.". I couldn't stop myself, even though I had visions of the cup popping out of the drawer and splashing sauce all over the dashboard.
      Amazingly, that didn't happen, and I was able to dip my chicken safely as I drove to my next stop. I guess Hans was right when he said, "It's Christmas, Theo. It's the time of miracles."
