Aromatherapy 55


The aroma hit me in the face
like a bag of angel feather.
It was ambrosia – applewood smoked bacon,
fresh cut fries
and hand packed
Angus beef burgers
in a chili
that was all meat and no beans.
As I leaned in to take a bite
a voice said,
“Look, fella, order your own food.”

ya know I need to rant! - it is cruel and unusual punishment when people put appetizing pictures of food on their blogs. When people are hungry, they are drooling all over the key board. Thanks to you I need a new keyboard
there now -I feel much better


I'm up
