I’ve been to the grocery store thousands of times in my life, Modern Philosophers, but I have never once found a jar of awesome sauce on the shelves.
Of course, I’m just assuming it would come in a jar, but it could very well be sold by the vat in the big box stores.
Awesome sauce might not be an actual product, but I’m sure we’ve all heard someone refer to it at some point.
It would be cool if it was real.
Maybe it is, though, when you really think about it.
Perhaps I’ve somehow willed it into existence. After a long, stressful week (they all seem to fit that description lately), I really needed to marinate my Friday in some awesome sauce.
And that’s when I realized that I had the power to open a jar of awesome sauce whenever I wanted. Basically, I am the chef of my life, and if I want to serve a menu with a little bit of flavor, it’s up to me to add some spice to the recipe.
Or awesome sauce.
So where did I find the awesome sauce today?
I arrived at work to find a box of donuts waiting on the counter.
The a friend told me he’d brought me a dozen fresh eggs.
That’s awesome sauce, Modern Philosophers.
But it’s not only food related. I checked the TV listings last night, and discovered that all three Yankees games will be televised in Maine this weekend.
That’s definitely awesome sauce.
I walked out of work at the end of the day, and the sun was shiny so brightly that I didn’t need to wear my jacket.
You got it.
Somebody once told me that life sucks because it ultimately ends in death.
But that person had clearly never walked into his personal pantry and discovered a jar of awesome sauce sitting on the shelf. The jar is always there, but sometimes, you’ve got to push some things out of the way to find it.
No matter what your outlook is on life, Modern Philosophers, I guarantee your time on this crazy blue marble will improve if you add a little awesome sauce.
And I promise that this post was not written on a dare to see how many times I could use the term “awesome sauce”. But even if it were, maybe doing something goofy like that is how I’ve chosen to add a little awesome sauce to my day. In other words, sauce it up.
What adds a little awesome sauce to your life?
