Now why would today’s word instantly register FOOD?
Probably because if we’re walking the dog early, the tantalizing whiff of sizzling bacon (and no that is not bodies bathing on the beach) wafts across our nostrils from either the B&Bs or cafes we pass.
It’s got a smell that automatically makes the taste buds sit up and take notice.
On the other hand, and later in the day, say lunchtime, it’s fish and chips from the chippy down the road. Fish, scampi, chicken, all cooked to order rather than keeping hot, so you get the benefit of a freshly cooked meal. More tantalization assault!
Even walking in the evening has its drawbacks as it’s the heavenly smell of Chinese takeaways that tease and torment our senses.
Ho hum. DIET is a four letter word (F O O D )
