If I don’t eat breakfast or another breakfast food item ever again, that will be just fine. But then again, give me a few weeks and I’ll be over this miserable feeling and be right back at it again!

The group went out today for an early lunch. However with the disappearance of Denny’s “Baconalia”, I was extremely disappointed.

I had promised one of my best friends that when I went out today for lunch, that I would attack the short menu of “Baconalia” just to say I tried it out. But alas, Denny’s has discontinued that and moved on to another promotion.

Wasn’t thrilled. So instead, I went and ate somewhere else where I knew that there would be bacon. What would happen next, nobody could have predicted. Not even Madam Cleo.

Nothing else looked that good on the menu, so I simply ordered a plate of bacon. That’s it! That’s what I set out for really, and nothing else. And so I ate that. And then the waitress asked me if I wanted more, I said “yes” and another plate was brought out.  Over and over again until the amount of bacon that was being served on each plate grew larger and larger. Apparently the manager of the restaurant was keeping tabs on me, and was counting how many strips of bacon I was consuming.

He came over to me and made a deal. If I could eat three more plates of bacon in a certain amount of time, my lunch would be free and they would begin a “bacon eating championship” for those customers who were interested.

I didn’t think I had anything to lose, so I went for it. The neighbors though, that went along weren’t too pleased. So I ate those three extra plates. That last one and a quarter plates of bacon though were extremely tough to swallow. But it got done. The manager took my picture with his cell phone and said he was going to post it on the wall of the restaurant.

So now I’ve set some sort of restaurant record. The manager claims it was three pounds of bacon in total. Although I have a very difficult time believing him as my mind is still swimming in maple flavored pork.

I do agree that I went too far with this adventure.  Sometimes my dedication to keep a promise overwhelms me and I just simply take things too far. Who knows what the damage could have been once I received the bill? Its something I truly don’t want to think about at this point. But I still argue just how much bacon I did consume.

Now I am waiting for that all important belch to relieve some of the pressure in my stomach. People in Oklahoma are gonna feel it once it comes.

Oh well, at least I won’t have to worry about eating supper tonight and my breath now smells like maple syrup.
