I totally agree with you. Eggs are sides for Bacon. BACON.
I love bacon. Too much. It borders on insanity. It is probably very unhealthy. Emotionally - separation from bacon causes anxiety.
I also have feelings for eggs.
That being said, a good steak always wins.
Oh, well - running marathons USED to be good for your health.
Terrorists have never been good for anyone’s health regardless really. *shrug*
