You know what I had for lunch yesterday? It was a turkey sandwich on white bread with two slices of provolone and four slices of bacon. I eat a lot of bacon, and thanks to the blessings of genetics, I don’t have high blood pressure or any of the trappings of a bacon fiend. I have a difficult time eating breakfast without bacon – it’s the best way to start the day. And if I ate salads – which I don’t, that’s for leaf eaters – I’d use bacon bits.
I was perusing Think Geek today to look for some cool items for the office, when I came upon these beauties: Bacon flavored envelopes. I don’t use a lot of envelopes around the office, mostly because I do everything online. But there are occasions when I have to send something via snail mail, and licking the envelope is always the worst part. That nasty gummy tast that comes with first contact, then the after taste that you have for the next three days making everything taste like gasoline on concrete. No thank you.
So what’s the damage? $8.99 for 25 envelopes, which in my case, might last two years. And if that means I’ve got two years without that nasty taste in my mouth, then it’s worth it. I wonder if they’re shipped in a bacon-flavored box. That would be awesome.
