Smells like Highway

My car has no AC; I basically drive like I'm back in 97'. Windows down, sunroof activated, sunglasses on, music blazing, you could call me hardcore.

I was about to take my exit towards home along the 99 from work yesterday - the work I quit yesterday suckas - I noticed a non-highway aroma filling the air as I was about to take my exit towards the Ferries. It wasn't diesel, or toxins from semi's, or manure, or even the little green tree air fresheners people buy for their cars at 7-11, it smelt of soup. Good soup. I was trying to put my nose on exactly what kind of soup, but just as I got onto my exit, the smell disappeared. Nature has its way of taunting me.

Today the same thing happened on my way home from work, in the exact same place, only this time it smelt of spices...almost like a taco, or chili...

If only I had more time with the smells, I'm sure I would be able to label exactly which food it was. Needless to say, I only had it engage me for about 10 seconds, and then it left.

Hunger is a cruel thing.

A reenactment.

Thanks to Andy Warhol for this soup can. Glad to know his art is good for something.
