We are currently living close to the Medical Center in Houston and also technically "in" the Museum District. These two areas of the city run into each other and overlap. Most of the good city museums are here and the world renowned hospitals are here as well. My husband is working downtown for a while and is able to take the Red Line Metro to work every morning. We walk over to the metro stop each morning together and usually I try to walk over there in the evening to meet him when he comes home. As such, we walk past several of the museums which are closed and dark in the morning but lively and thronging with kids and people in the afternoon (one of the museums we pass is the Children's Museum). We also walk past several hospitals on the back side, the side where the loading docks are, the side where the kitchens are closest to those loading docks. Most mornings there are one or two food trucks there disgorging the necessary ingredients to feed hospital patients.
Three mornings out of five, as we walk past, the lovely, tantalizing, enticing, delicious aroma of sizzling bacon comes wafting out to us from one of the hospital buildings. How lovely that these hospitalized people are getting such a nutritious breakfast. Opps, haven’t I always read and been told that bacon has a lot of fat, possible carcinogens, not much nutritional value, and really shouldn’t be eaten that often? But it is so very, very tasty when cooked crisp and served hot. Don’t really know what kind of a hospital it is we are passing because we’ve never passed on the front side to read any of the signs that identify it. I do hope it is an all purpose kind of hospital though because should I need to go into a hospital again, I want one that will serve me bacon three times a week!
