The letter B hadn't even finished forming in my brain before I knew what I would write about - - BACON! Duh! Who doesn't love bacon? I could hear the sizzle and smell the hickory smokiness and see the grease staining the paper towels - okay, that part isn't very appetizing. But, still, it's bacon!
But the weird thing is - - I don't want to write about bacon bacon. I want to write about Kevin Bacon. I know he isn't technically a food, but humor me. He's the bacon that popped into my mind, so he's the bacon that stars in the blog.
I like Kevin Bacon. I don't love Kevin Bacon. Not like I love bacon bacon. I liked Kevin Bacon in "A Few Good Men," and "Tremors" - the first one. He was kind of adorable as that dorky rednecky kind of guy. And I really liked/hated him in "The River Wild." I wanted to hit him with an oar and knock him into the river. I looked at Kevin Bacon's filmography. He's been in a zillion movies, most of them I've never heard of.
The one thing about Kevin Bacon that I really don't understand is this: Why do girls think he is so good looking?? I really don't think he's cute. I mean, let's be honest - - he has some appeal just because of his name. Cuz really, how can you go wrong with the name Bacon? Seriously, even if you were hideously ugly and had BO and no teeth, when people hear your name, they're going to smell bacon and lust after bacon, and the hideously ugly, smelly, toothless person named Bacon won't seem so bad. That's the beauty of bacon bacon. It's an equalizer.
And, just in case you were wondering, I don't think Kevin Bacon is hideously ugly. He probably doesn't even have BO. I just don't think he's very cute. I do, however, have a sudden craving for a BLT while I watch a KBM (Kevin Bacon movie).
