Pheromone 55

There was something in the air
that had him churning
with a passion he hadn’t felt in some time.
He reacted as if exposed
to a pheromone
that burned through to his very soul.
He found himself grabbing and groping
unable to get his fill.
Pushing away he muttered,
“God, I love fresh popped Popcorn.”

LOL! Yeah...they should bottle buttered popcorn scent and sell it. Definitely a pheromone in my book!

Caty said...

hahaha...now I'm hungry and I can almost smell popcorn as though I were in a movie theater. This was terrific :)

G-Man said...

Yep MM
Popcorn does indeed start a Pavlovian response, it does in me anyway.
Most excellent 55 my friend
You better be careful, those pheromones can be dangerous!
Have a Kick Ass Week-End, and God Bless America!

Monkey Man....Popcorn??? I do like popcorn but you had me thinking along a very different line...I don't know, playing with peoples emotions like that! Very cheeky!

John's comments said...

yum, yum in my tum - where's the movie? My 55 here

Me said...

Haha...I didn't see *that* coming!

Glad you clarified that it's flash "fiction" friday...wouldn't want to picture you sitting in a vat of hot buttery kernels...a person could get some minor burns in a situation like that. ;)

Eric Alder said...

Hilareous picture!

marie said...

great 55! I don't do this if I am eating popcorn at home (on the couch while watching TV), but I do seem to INHALE popcorn while sitting in a dark theater (in a movie trance.) I wonder why... My 55 is ready. Happy weekend!

Unknown Mami said...

I am a fiend for homemade popcorn. Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!

Could you do me a huge favor? I moved to WordPress, if my feed is not updating in your reader or dashboard could you pretty please stop by and un-follow, then re-follow? That seems to be the only way to fix it. I'm getting lonely over there.

C.M. Jackson said...

oh yes...best smell except for maybe pizza!! great photo too! Happy 55 and here's to a wonderful holiday weekend for you and yours.

willow said...

Me, too, with lots of parmesan cheese!

hope said...

That is one of the most wonderful smells on the face of the planet! Now I have to experience it at home because you need to take out a loan to watch a movie in the theater, with popcorn!

Nara said...

That butter smell just robs you of good sense,
