This is a list of “life occurrences” people have actually been through which almost always applies only to those who are living in poverty. Where these originally came from, I do not know, but these came from another WordPress site called “Whatever” by John Scalzi. After Whatever‘s list, there are hundreds of comments of people sharing their own experiences, so I have to wonder if this is not unlike a “chain-list.” A list that started with just a few items, then grew and is continually passed on just as I am doing now. Each and every passing alters and changes it somewhat by removing a few and adding in some from the comments. Every voice deserves to be heard. And please, if you have some to share, please do so in the comments.
Have you noticed that references to bacon have mushroomed in popularity on the internet? (yes, pun intended. A bad pun, but it was intentional) I frequently see jokes and other items about bacon such as a picture of a woman wearing a bacon bra, a man wearing a bacon condom (well, not sure what else to call it), and so on. I mean, whassup with bacon these days???
I am a bacon-lover, too. Although in limited quantities since I stopped salting my food years ago and can only eat just a few slices of bacon due to the salt content. I almost immediately have to follow it up with something sweet. Although bacon on food, like a burger, is different. Anyway, back to the point… I love bacon, but somehow, ehhhh… I’m not quite sold on this one. I’d have to try it first. I mean, it is only eight bucks before shipping….
I met this kindly gentleman while walking around Seattle taking some footage of the night life at Pike Place Market one evening while in town on business. We struck up a wonderful, intriguing conversation which I thoroughly enjoyed. Initially he approached me asking for a cigarette – which I happily surrendered – than simply began talking. During his approach, I noticed his gait was one of pain as he was obviously dependent upon the cane he used.
