Sugar

Sugar. Yes, please

Won’t you come and put it down on me

Well, maybe not all types of sugar, I’ll pass on high fructose corn syrup

Ever wondered about deliciousness?

Ever wondered about the taste receptors?

Ever wondered about how “delicious” goes beyond taste and the tongue?

Tonight I’m inquisitive, about the deliciousness of everything from sugar cookies to the feel of his arms as they wrap around my waist…

How does intimacy go beyond the flutter in the heart to an umami taste in the mouth?

How does the tactile motion that results in a piggyback ride set off a lingering scent of fresh-baked cinnamon bun in the nostrils and a delicious taste of consuming them in the mouth?

How does the transition from the somewhat intellectually draining activity of late-night thesis editing to the taste of delicious beef lasagna occur?

Has anyone mapped out the route?

How come I taste satisfaction, something like party jollof rice, as oxytocin is released when the six-month-old baby boy lays peacefully on my not remotely abundant bosom?

Why do I taste adventure, something like cronuts, as I stare down at sunrise and sunset, clouds and cities from the comfort of an airplane window seat?

How does that translator work?

He/She/It appears to have decided that excitement taste like cheesecake decadently topped with strawberry sauce

For some reason, He/She/It also decided that comfort and companionship tastes like Briyani- vibrant with flavor, spicy and yummy, warm and satisfying

Where does the connection lie, between dopamine, endorphin and “a type of disaccharide made from the combination of the monosaccharides glucose and fructose”?

What do those neurotransmitters say to each other?

Hey you! I see you’re feeling sweet today? Here comes the sugar baby!!!

Sugar. Yes, please

Won’t you come and put it down on me
