At Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, love is always in the air. But it’s not like the love between couples or the love between parent and child. This kind of love goes even deeper than that. It’s love of the edible variety.
Opsomania, the abnormal love for one kind of food, is a real thing. Look it up.
We’ll wait (definition of opsomania).
See? We weren’t making it up.
To all those opsomaniacs out there we say, “Good for you!” You can’t help who, or in this case “what,” you love. For every 10 opsomaniacs, one is a tacomaniac (we made that up, but it sounds right). These taco lovers have figured out that maybe the love of their life has chicken, tomatoes, feta cheese, hot sauce and is wrapped in a corn tortilla.
We don’t see anything wrong with that. Here are some surefire signs that a taco is the love of your life.
All you think about are tacos.
No matter what’s going on in your day, tacos seem to keep popping up in your mind for no apparent reason. You wonder if they’re thinking about you as much as you are about them, despite that being a ridiculous thing to think. You’re always wondering what they’re up to and want to call and ask, but the manager’s asked you to stop calling, please.
You catch yourself wanting to buy it things
Every time you see jalapeños, queso or other Tex-Mex toppings, you picture your taco wearing them. You catch yourself thinking, “Oh, you know who would love this? My taco.”
You’ve suddenly forgotten about your ex
That long and painful breakup you went through last year seems foolish all of a sudden. You’d been looking for love in all the wrong places, when it was actually right in front of you, covered in garlic sauce, all along.
You want to know all about it
With other meals, you really haven’t cared much about where it came from, why it tastes the way it does, etc. With your taco, you really want to open up and find out everything about it. Where did this chicken come from? Where were these tomatoes grown? What are its goals? Fears? Five-year plan?
You find its quirks charming
Sure, it can get a little messy at times. Sometimes the fillings fall out. You find these imperfections adorable. You laugh and say, “That is so you!”
You have great chemistry
When you and your taco get in the same room, things get HOT! Your incessant PDA once set the fire alarm off at a Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Thanks for that.
You don’t notice other foods as much
Italian food? That’s nice. Chinese, huh? That’s cool. “But you used to love this place!” shouts your best friend. You were a different person back then and there’s only one food in your life now. All others pale in comparison.
Other priorities don’t seem as important
So you may not be hitting the gym like you used to, and they haven’t seen you at work since last Tuesday, but THIS LOVE IS FOR REAL!
When you think of the future, you see a taco in it
This is probably the most telltale sign. You used to not be able to picture yourself with anyone (or anything?) in 60 years. Now you see yourself sitting in a rocking chair on the back porch, taco in hand, listening to classic dubstep and reflecting on how wonderful your life has been.
Remember, kid: Follow your heart. Come fall in love at your nearest Fuzzy’s Taco Shop today.
