International Bacon Day got me thinking of just how awesome my last name is. Seriously, it’s Bacon, what could be better? It’s everywhere, and it’s the new craze. A nearby city actually has an annual Bacon Festival. People are just in love, me most of all. I came up with a few reasons I just love being a Bacon; some are serious, some are just ridiculous. One thing’s for certain: Bacon makes everything better.
-I can wear shirts about bacon and smile because secretly I know it relates to me personally.
-People ask if we’re related to Kevin Bacon.
-I can give Allison cute nicknames like Bacon Bit.
-People have to do a double-take when asking for my name, because they just can’t believe someone can be named Bacon.
-Once they realize my name IS Bacon, they usually laugh and comment on how awesome it is. Anything to make someone’s day better!
-People don’t usually use John’s and my name. We’re just known as “BACONS!!!”
-I’m always commenting on my friends’ Facebook posts about Bacon. “Did someone say Bacon?” It’s probably pretty annoying.
-“Bringing home the Bacon” has a whole new meaning.
-I can eat bacon all day and not gain weight. (Actually not true, but how great would that be?)
-Our non-existent future children could have awesome names. Like Chris P. Bacon.
Go out and eat some bacon today!
