Day 20: Going out like a Texan

Day 20:  Death row meal

It would go something like this:

  • Smoked brisket (I shouldn't have to specify, but I might not be in a Texan prison), drenched in Rudy's barbecue sauce
  • Spicy sausage
  • Cream corn
  • Baked beans
  • White bread (nothing fancy--just plain old Wonderbread-type stuff)
  • Pickle spears
  • Banana pudding
  • Buttermilk pie
  • Smoked pecan pie
  • Ice cold, fresh-squeezed lemonade

It's not that these are my favorite foods (though many are among my favorites).  For me, this type of meal is symbolic of one of the most meaningful, Christ-centered periods of my life.  Sitting on death row would be a dark time, to be sure, so I'd want to be reminded of a time when great light overpowered all darkness, when I went about doing good (because I would have had to not be doing good to end up on death row).  That would be the most comforting thing to me as I faced execution.

Mmm, pecan pie! Wow, morbid subject by the way, let's hope you'll never have to realize it ;)

Haha, For sure! ;-D Good to hear from you, Jonas! I hope everything's going well. :)

It's going quite well indeed, not ending up on any death rows anyhow ;) (which would of course be quite impressive a feat here, since there are no death penalties in Sweden..)

Haha, No kidding! Glad to hear you're doing well. :)
