This is Five Minute Friday (- a five minute timed free write) and our One Word Prompt for the day is: BACON (Yes... Bacon!?)
Really? Bacon? Well - we know the Truth about Bacon...it's just that we would all rather forget, right? And not just sometimes... but all of the times!
All of the breakfasty times, all of the brunch times, and all of the lunch and dinner times, too!
I mean sure - it's delicious. Most would agree on that truth... but even before the medical research and recent 'findings' about Bacon, we all know it's not good for us!
We can try to act like it's something different.
Dress it up and call it
But we all know that Bacon is not good for us.
Or are we talking about "Bacon"?
Bacon (and "Bacon") = not good for us.
It may seem like a good idea, but once you give in to the urge for bacon, you know what follows?
More urge for more bacon!
You can't stop.

"Bacon": Something 'delicious' that you know is not a healthy choice but you choose it anyway.
Bacon, unless you really do have some
"Bacon" is flirty and savory and will lure you around empty alleyways and slow dance with you in the dark. Bacon makes promises and smells delicious and calls you up at all hours of the night.
Bacon is everywhere and everyone loves him... he can't be tied down because everyone wants a piece of him (or twelve!)
Bacon seems to compliment anything... Bacon makes everything better --or so that is what he tells you.
Bacon always talks in third person.
But the truth is, bacon (read: any temptation that lures you away from what you know is good for you) lies...
It tastes great for a moment, but the nutritional value is small and the trade off will cost you more than you think!
Sometimes, it's better to go without than to tempt fate and let Bacon have his way with you! Besides, the truth is that Bacon is greasy and messy and he leaves a mark. Bacon will break your heart --as in, for real.
Sometimes we think just a little bacon (or fill in the blank with your own weakness) won't hurt...
But the truth is we know better
...It's just that Sometimes We('d like to) Forget!
You guys... all I can say right now is #YoureWelcome...
