Chicken wings

“When I was a kid for my birth­day par­ties, or if I got a good re­port card at school, or did well on ex­ams, my mum would fry chicken wings. When I got a bit older, chicken wings were what she’d make when my friends came round to watch big sport­ing fi­nals, or for grad­u­a­tion. I now have an al­most Pavlo­vian re­sponse to eat­ing chicken wings. Once I gave up meat for 99 days af­ter my grand­mother died as part of the mourn­ing tra­di­tions in Viet­nam. Af­ter those 99 days were over, guess what was the first thing I ate?”
