For the Love of Toast! My Life 28 JAN 2010

So there I was, standing in the kitchen, two fresh slices of white bread in my hand, the Stork margarine out on the counter, the grated cheese standing at the ready and the ham lying lovingly covered by a small piece of plastic (in a very tasteful pose)…

…when I realised I couldn’t find the toaster anywhere on the counter.

“What!?”, I loudly exclaimed, looking all around me in a quick fit of panic. “Chantelle, where’s the toaster!?”, I cried out in anguish.

“We gave it away like two months ago already silly. Did you forget again?”, came the sniggering reply.

Damn you Woolworths in Somerset Mall for not stocking our desired four piece toaster that every other branch around the Cape seems to have sitting on their shelves!

If you don’t do something about putting it on your shelves immediately, we’re going to be forced to look elsewhere for something else – all of which means my ham is going to go unloved for that much longer.

And that my friends, is simply not acceptable! :(

    How have you managed to live without a toaster for two months?! O_o
    (And only notice now!)

    My god, Adrian would have a heart attack if he couldn’t have his precious toast in the mornings.

  • Nah, usually have either cereal or yoghurt in the mornings. Almost never bother with toast that early on. That said, when a man wants toast and can’t get toast… well let’s just say it isn’t a pretty sight!

  • Ya, I’m with Gobz – kudos on the not noticing thing. I use it almost daily when I’ve lost one of my million lighters.

    Smoking is hardcore yo.

  • Now there’s a use for the common toaster that I never imagined in my wildest dreams! :_)

    The image it invokes is priceless enough!
