You Know You’re From Abilene If You Agree With These 10 Commandments
Abilene is known for having a church on every corner. Which brings me to some of our Big Country "commandments". We Abilenians are quite opinionated about what should or should not be rules to abide by if you live in the Lone Star State. So, I posted on the station's Facebook page, "What are some unbreakable rules that we live by in Abilene?" Here's what you had to say.
It started with my Facebook response that I firmly believe in "Thou Shalt Never Put Beans In Chili". By the way, it is in the Texas Legislation that good ole "Texas Red Chili" is the official State Food of Texas. And yes, the legislators argued the "beans vs no beans" argument, and history won. There have never been beans in chili, and you could be arrested for forgery if you put them in there and try to pass it off as "Texas Chili".
The fact that we have all these churches, it shouldn't be too hard to follow these new "10 Commandments for Abilene" and to make sure that everyone else follows them too. I'll save all the humorous political comments for another day and another time.
What I did find extremely funny were all the driving violations we commit (or didn't) because of the traffic problems at several intersections like South 14th and Winters Freeway, Buffalo Gap Road and Industrial, or Southwest Drive and Clack Street.
And don't some people know that chicken nuggets are sacred? Thank you, Lord for these chicken nuggets we are about to receive...amen.
If you have an opinion about what should be a commandment in Abilene, please feel free to share your thoughts and let me know.
