The Smell of Bacon Never Lies

 

 

"The Whitehouse Diner" Photo by Aaron Segreaves


I always dream in color but this time there was the smell of bacon in the air.  They say you dream about what matters to you most.  I shared this with my therapist, and he said this explains a lot!  We mostly discussed my forlorn love life, my ex, and why apple pie is not my friend. You see, one of the last times I saw my ex was at the diner downtown.  He said he was hungry for more than dating with no strings attached.  I was certain he was full of it! I ordered coffee no cream no sugar, he laughed and said “that figures!”

Sure enough, 20 stale dates and 2 months later, I caught him with the waitress from the Tangerine Tango.  I know a bad egg when I see one and some rump roasts are always going to be tough!

Excuse me while I go make a BLT on rye.

  2. I read somewhere that there is no sense of smell in dreams, but i think there is, it just doesn't happen that often. Still not sure...

    He sounds like an ass roast for sure!

  11. This might be my favorite title ever. I've never eaten bacon (out of observance of kosher dietary laws, as my blogger name would suggest...), but I once worked at a breakfast place where one of my jobs was making the bacon egg and cheese sandwiches. I've never really felt tempted by the sight of bacon, but man, the smell of bacon was so appetizing!
