Have you ever had a strong physical reaction to food…?
I don’t mean like food poisoning or allergy, not at all.
I mean like… an arousing… reaction…
Well, tonight, riding home through the cool, misty air, I passed underneath the train tracks, and hit the first wall of Sunbeam bread being freshly baked for the early morning send-off…
I inhaled deeply, sucking in the warm, glorious smell I always delight in crossing…
And I felt an instant, almost overpowering, reaction in my body… my muscles tensed, and an intense shiver, originating … well, yeah… below my belly, rose powerfully upward, through my belly, my spine, down my arms and spreading through the hair follicles on my entire body… in a sense, it was a moment of ecstasy…. It was deep and intense and thorough, though only for a few moments.
My whole body was suddenly tightly wound, and utterly warm, for just a moment…
As the shiver released through my body, its spread all-encompassing, it flowed out my finger tips and skull, and dissipated entirely, leaving only a questioning sense of ‘What the h*** just happened?’ in my mind…
I wasn’t opposed.
But I certainly was surprised.
I mean… wow.
Not even… the scent of bread.
So, that’s been on my mind since I arrived home tonight… haha 😛
