A little while ago (ie, yesterday), this happened:
I got an email from a friend that said some things, and then right at the end (and totally unrelated, I might add), he said, "I reserve the right to make a bacon hat."
This struck me as a genius statement. So I tweeted.
People read my tweet, which still astounds me. And then Lish McBride, who wrote one of the funniest books in existence--HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER--sent me a video of a guy who wears a bacon dress and puts bacon down his pants, because she GETS ME.
So then we started ranting about trouser bacon, and how I wanted a shirt that says, "You should never eat trouser bacon," and then Laini Taylor, who I WILL MEET LIVE AND IN PERSON NEXT WEEK, jumps into the conversation, and at the end of the day, I think we might have pitched my agent with an anthology of stories...all about trouser bacon. Which I, personally, would buy.
Wouldn't you? I would very much like to see what Laini and Lish would do in the trouser bacon genre.
I'd read it!
On a similar (bacony) note, I once overheard someone say "I'd be a vegetarian if it weren't for bacon."
Trouser bacon sounds vaguely pornographic. I'm just sayin'.
But honestly I would read anything with this in the title.lol
I would definitely read an anthology of stories about bacon. Also, I can say bacon in three languages: English, Spanish, and American Sign Language.
I have yet to come up with a kidlit blog friendly comment on the topic of trouser bacon.
And this is how the YA world work, people. hehe
Mmmm ... Bacon!
I had to laugh at this post. Thanks for putting a smile on my face. If someone asks me why I am smiling, I might just have to be honest and answer; I am smiling because of bacon.
