Recalibrating The Threshold of Simple Pleasures

I told myself I wasn't in the mood to write Thursday night, because of an excess of fatigue.  I wasn't going to do it, but then I made dinner, ate it, and discovered that I had some mojo working.  I had hit the nail squarely, and was doing a slow-motion dance, all on account of a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich.

It was the third one I've made this year, and the first two were edible, but...meh.  This third one, though, well that is a different story altogether.  It was the rule of thirds.  As in third time is a charm.

I'm not certain of what I did, but I did it proper.  Proper. I don't know if it is the Absolute Bestest BLT Ever, but it was perfect right then.  It tasted good.  It filled me up.  It made me content.

Sometimes, that is all we really need out of life: a tasty sandwich, balm for the soul.


  1. That is so right.

    Now...what to do about you flinging a craving for a perfect BLT on me?


  2. Ah...there is a dive bar here in town with a darn tasty BLT. Mmm. You are giving me ideas.

  3. okay, so what was the bread? was it really well toasted? lots of mayo?

    i had a similar sandwich experience today with rye, jack, tomatoes and spring greens. made it at home and carried it across the street to the park and downed it with a diet Pepsi. in the shade of a tree, sitting on my neglected yoga mat.


    your comrade in the land of sandwich!

  4. It seems like the older I get those "simple pleasures" are getting their volume turned up on the amplifier of my soul. Right now it's my morning coffee which sometimes turns the knob to 11. :)

  5. Well ... if you don't know how you made this sammie, how can we re-create it? HUH? Tell me that! HEHE! I do love me a good BLT, but with miracle whip and not mayo. I don't know why MW makes it taste so much bettah!

  6. BTW I love your new banner!

  7. The best sandwich of summer? Fresh tomatoes, mayo on white bread.

    holy mother of God it's criminal.

  8. And I might have to stop coming over if it's going to make me HUNGRY! I'm trying to get down to my "fighting" weight.

  9. A good BLT can inspire the muse, no doubt about it. Extra toms, please.
