Red Lobster

I used to go to Red Lobster every time I was sick.
It started with a trip to the doctor when I was about eight. My parents took me for a checkup, and when we were done, my dad asked me where I wanted to go to lunch. I was sick with a cold, and I had been whining about it all the way there, so I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to get a special meal. I said I wanted Red Lobster.
So we went, and I ordered the fried catfish. I ate a lot of it. I mean, a lot. My parents were surprised. They knew I liked fish, but they had never seen me eat so much. I think I even finished the whole basket by the time we were done.
We went back to Red Lobster again a few weeks later, this time because I had a sore throat. I ordered the fried catfish again, and I ate a lot of it. I was starting to think that maybe when I got sick, I got a special power that made Red Lobster taste even better.
I kept going to Red Lobster when I was sick for the next few years. I must have eaten fried catfish a hundred times. I loved the way it tasted, and I always felt better after I ate it.
But then, I started to get older, and I started to get sick less often. I still went to Red Lobster sometimes, but I didn't eat the fried catfish as often. And when I did eat it, it didn't taste as good. I think I had just outgrown it.
I haven't been to Red Lobster in years now. But I still remember the taste of that fried catfish, and I still think about it every time I get sick. It's a reminder of a simpler time, when all I had to worry about was getting better.
Now, I'm not saying that Red Lobster is a cure for the common cold. But I do think there's something to be said for the power of comfort food. When you're feeling sick, there's nothing better than eating something that you love. And for me, that something is Red Lobster.
So if you're ever feeling under the weather, I recommend giving Red Lobster a try. You might just be surprised at how good it tastes.
