Bacon Lust

After a day of toiling (telling stories), I came home to discover that my husband was going out to a business dinner. That didn’t bother me too much, because it meant I didn’t have to move off my lazy rear to cook.

Then I found out that the suppliers were taking him to Master Grill Churrascaria! It’s a Brazilian style restaurant that is supposed to be marvelous. I turned green with envy.

You see, I wouldn’t know if it’s marvelous or not, because I have never had the privilege of eating there, although the same suppliers have taken my Sweet Spousal Unit to another restaurant like it (I should become friends with these suppliers, I think). I have heard the tales of an orgy of eating with waiters prancing around the place with skewers of meats that have been slow roasted over an open flame. The meals are expensive, and you can eat all you want. I think the primary goal is to eat until you can’t move and the waiters roll you out to the sidewalk.

I sent him on his merry way and settled down to “feast” upon a meal of cold leftovers, hastily gulped, while brushing off some of my stories for the gigs I have this week. I didn’t mind a little peace and quiet after a hectic day.

He returned to tell me of the experience. The man ate so much, that he was looking a little green! He regaled me with a saga of bacon wrapped jalapeños, bacon wrapped chicken, bacon wrapped steak, bacon wrapped shrimp, bacon wrapped lamb, bacon wrapped pork, and bacon wrapped bacon! In an agony of BACON LUST I fell to the floor writhing and weeping.

Wicked man!

My SSU smiled sweetly, and said, “But, honey, I did bring you a dessert…”

My tears spewed forth anew.

“What’s wrong?” he asked. “It’s key lime pie. You like key lime pie!”

Through a steady stream of tears, I whimpered, “Yes, but is it wrapped in bacon?”

    Thankfully I’d just finished my drink, otherwise there would now be coke zero all over my keyboard.

    Poor thing, if I were there *I’d* take you out for dinner.

    Way too much bacon for me, but I get the point here. Too funny. Hope you could get around the bacon on the pie. Bwahahahahaha. Look at all the weight your husband gained that you didn’t. Just saying. Have a great day. 🙂

    You should have given him mouth to mouth resuscitation and sucked all that bacon out of him, just to get a bacon fix…. I bet hubby smelled real good.

    😯 he should have been thoughtful and brought home something in bacon for you, instead of the pie. You are too funny sweets!

    holy cow with the bacon!!! LOL You must have been in heaven…Now the pie sounds yummy too so I would eat the pie first(-: I like the sugar part better then the meat part. That is my problem. I could live on sugar…when I really should be eating more protein. Oh well…

    Hahahahahaha. You poor thing, if he doesn’t treat you to dinner there soon, we will! Man I am smelling bacon, I may not eat it anymore, but I love that smell. I hope the couple we meet tomorrow for breakfast doesn’t order bacon, I may weaken.
