There’s vanilla extract, rose extract, but have you ever heard of bacon extract?
Going to the lab is a daily routine for me. Throw in some ingredients and hope it sells for billions. Anyone can do what I do, I’m not special, it only takes fortuity and forbearance which you can clearly tell I don’t have. I watch people on T.V, everyday entering shark tank and having millions and thousands of investment. And I’m left here, behind this humongous machine that squeezes, extracts, and combines everything together.
My eyes only focusing on some objects for instance the T.V so, of course I forget to pack my bread for my sandwich leaving me with my honey glazed bacon. I take a short glance at the bacon and shrugged. I mean, I can’t complain, bacon brings everyone happiness. Being a reckless person I am, my elbows decides to take a swing over and nudge my bacon into the machine. I don’t notice anything remarkable so, I had decided to carry on and order Chinese take out for today.
Observing the substance wouldn’t help, why not use all your senses? Finally, the smell comes up to my nose as my eyes gaze at the liquid below me. My nose tingles with the smell of the liquid it smells like gooey, velvety, honey crunched bacon. Dipping my index finger into the thin beaker, I take a sample. Little do I know, the temptation overpowered me as a small sip turned into a big gulp. The beaker is empty, no sign of any bacon extract left. I thought to myself if I let my temptations go beyond me, imagine what others would do. It is too significant of an idea to not try to sell so I called everywhere and everyone. Bacon extract, what’s not to love? Costco, Walmart, Target, McDonald’s, Burger King, everywhere reply with one simple answer, a big yes. My body tingles as my brain shrieks. I feel the excitement in me but I had to contain it as phone calls from all over the globe called this rusted old Nokia blocked . The moment I drop my phone down, it kept ringing. My face is plastered on posters, TV channels, newspapers, making headlines for my invention. Paparazzi and reporters are trailing me day after day, blocking me from having any personal space or the chance to see any sunlight. The number of Facebook friend requests and Instagram followers increased everyday. It hits me, I am famous. I’m internationally known. “Jane Ngu founder of Bacon Extract I mumbled into the air. “ Ahh yes, it does have a ring to it.” I murmured as I try to hold my smile back but it eventually cracks through the veneer. My smile was so big I could feel my whole face shifting . This is my life story. I had outshined KFC, Wendy’s, and In N Out combined in a day. I am loved more than Justin Bieber, and One Direction retweeted me. Bacon Extract is painted on the floor of the Stapled Center, next to the big Lakers and Clippers Logo. This is a legendary day that no one in the 21st century will forget. A petite girl from Vietnam to an international celebrity. I conquered the market and food chains.
