Roughing it.....

When I want to get back in touch with my pioneer roots, I buy unsliced bread.

Of course, then I have to deal with the dreaded resurgence of bread slicing elbow....

Ah, there's danger in everything, isn't there? Teehee.

Thanks for my morning giggle. :)

And if you use an axe Gracie? It just smushes the bread.

And then it won't fit in the toaster.

I lost a cousin to the great bread slicing elbow epidemic of '04. You really can't be too careful.

This put me in just the right mood. :) And now I want a sandwich. Cut me some bread?

Karen from Mentor said...

HA!!! @ Laurita. That slayed me. *doffs hat*

*cuts Laurita some bread*

....adds cold chicken, red leaf lettuce, mayo and some zippy dressing.

KjM said...

Axes, bread knives, zips, oh my!

What a dangerous place this is on a Saturday morning.

*goes way muttering about how dangerous red leaf _anything_ can be*

Karen from Mentor said...

Oh my gosh Kevin, speaking of the dangers of red leaf lettuce....last night I made myself a huge salad and was sitting eating it watching this amazing thunderstorm. A few bites in this really interesting beetle crawled up out of the leaves and walked around the rim of my pretty green bowl.

[I'll wait while everybody pictures that]

Well, I caught him and then had to wait for the deluge to slow down so I could get him out the window. He would have drowned otherwise.

....and yes, I did eat the rest of the salad.

They make unsliced bread now? Wow! What'll they think up next?


Karen from Mentor said...

Strange but true, Eric. And remember you heard it here first.

Once I see a bug -it's all over. Thank you mom, and the half a slug I found on my fork. (Not once but twice in my childhood) And yeah it was the leftover bitten half.

Karen from Mentor said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww Cat. I love all bugs except slugs. I Hate even touching a slug because they're so slimy. If I had ever eaten one the vomiting would have been epic. Epic I say. Minstrels would have sung songs about it. People would have reenacted it on Youtube. There would have been a day on the calendar celebrating/commemorating it.

In short?
[it would have been bad]
