While I was making our morning coffee, when I went to grab the half-and-half I noticed that the bacon was missing from the refrigerator. When I opened the freezer, I found the bacon there – it appears that my girlfriend Susan is freezing the bacon until Easter… God bless her. (Whoops – was that blasphemous? I shouldn’t ask God to bless anything during Lent I guess). Then I realized there was some King cake left from our Fat Tuesday celebration, so I proceeded to have a slice of the sugary sweet pastry – nice, but not the same as my beloved salty but scrumptious bacon.
While browsing Twitter today, I discovered a wonder invention from the Oscar Meyer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon – a device that plugs into your iPhone and turns it into a bacon scent alarm clock. They aren’t for sale – only 4700 made and you have to be chosen to receive one. I didn’t win today, but I’ll definitely try tomorrow. After all, I gave up bacon for Lent but said nothing about giving up smelling an artificial bacon scent in the morning.
