Hot Chips and Vinegar
I lost weight after I finished uni. Not seeing the connection? Well you see the main building for my subjects was a large block in the centre of the uni. Along with the faculty of communication, it held the student resource centre, meeting rooms and the refectory.
Every day as I left my lectures and tutorials I would be assaulted by the food scent that makes me go instantly weak a the knees. The smell that melts any sense of resistance. The smell of hot chips with vinegar.
And so my best laid eating plans would disappear in the face of subsidised chips smothered in vinegar.
Today I scraped together a measly salad for lunch from the fast dwindling supplies in our fridge. It was yummy but I wasn't full, so when I stepped out of the office and caught the smell of my nemesis on the breeze I just knew what I had to have. I may or may not have even drunk the leftover vinegar out of the bottom of the cup.
Is there a food smell that you can't resist?
