Slice of Life: Fish Fry 3/13

I am participating again this year in the Slice of Life challenge in which we write a slice every day in March.  If you are interested in joining in, visit the Two Writing Teachers blog for more information.

Tonight my husband and I went out to enjoy a fish fry. There were many years in my life that I didn't know that this is a Wisconsin thing. Those of you from other states will maybe not know that in Wisconsin, every restaurant has a Friday Fish Fry. People go looking for the best one. Tonight, we went back to a place we had not been for a few years. We enjoyed fried fish, coleslaw, potatoes, and soup. There is also usually a baked option. I love this little slice of Wisconsin life and I love that I now know that it is something special and not found everywhere. It is so neat that each place has these small customs that set it apart from other places. What is your custom?

  1. I have more of a ritual with the downstairs neighbor's crazy cat. Every day I greet her and although most days she ignores me, I don't give up. For seven years every day I greet the cat. There is a comfort in the fact that she will always be there, even if she isn't so friendly.
