The Scent of Breakfasts Past

Breakfast meats are delicious. This is a fact that cannot be disputed. The delicious scent that wafts from the pan while they are being cooked and lifts passersby into the air, levitating them to the mouthwatering source.
Spring is a beautiful time of year. This is a fact that cannot be disputed. Birds are singing, flowers are growing, and breezes are meandering past open windows.
Mmm... bacon is in my mouth, in
my heart, and in the very walls
Unfortunately, the lovely smell of breakfast meats tends to stay around, lingering on the walls and snuggling with the furniture long after the delectable meats have been consumed. It’s the downside to the delightfulness. The smell is persuaded to go over to the dark side and infests your home, so that the next time you have guests, they walk in, sniff once, and say, “oh, you’ve been eating bacon recently?” and you say, “not for a couple weeks” and feel embarrassed that you missed the fact that your house is filled with a secret stench.
Fortunately, Spring weather and Spring breezes are just the thing to banish strong smells (even those strong smells which were previously pleasant). All you need to do is toss the windows open, and the wind will carry away any smell that you’d rather not keep in your kitchen for the next three months. And breakfast meats smells are a hardy sort, so don’t worry, the smell will stay around while you’re cooking, at the very least.
The only thing you have to do to make sure your home doesn’t smell like stale breakfast meats for months to come is to remember to open the windows before or while you’re cooking, instead of forgetting until afterward.
Anybody wanna come over and smell my breakfast?
