I smelled a McDonald's cheeseburger last night and I swear that they put some kind of pheremones in them to make them smell like you absolutely MUST have it.
I ran through there to get one for my son because he was really hungry but we weren't going home any time soon. I at least convinced him to get apple dippers insead of fries...one thing at a time, right?
Anyway...The bag came into my car and I was fine. Then he unwrapped the sucker and the aroma felt like an airbag slamming into my face. It was so strong and tantalizing that I literally started to salivate.
I had to roll down the window on a 90 degree muggy day to get the smell out of my car so that I didn't rip it out of his hand and either stuff it into my craw or toss it out the window. Realizing that it wasn't working, I remembered that satisfying your sense of smell is nearly as good and eating so I started taking deep breaths through my nose, filling my olfactory senses with the heavenly smell.
I didn't even ask for a bite. I did give it some covetous looks though.
