Excuse me, but why don't people in this household, who shall go unnamed, close bread and bun sacks and then carefully twist the twist-ties around the plastic to make them air tight? Do they LIKE dry bread?
Another question: Why don't these same people eat the last slices of one loaf of bread before diving into a fresh one? It's obvious that their need for said freshness is in complete contradiction to their utter disregard for sealing up the previous packages. Don't they realize that if they took better care of the opened sacks, they could eat fresh bread all the time?
These pressing questions haunt me, along with questions about toilet paper rolls and why they never get replaced by anyone but me. The T.P. questions can wait, while we spend some time kneading the bread issues.
Today's Small Thing is about all things "Bread."
Do you have sacks with lone slices of crusty bread in your pantry? How about bags of moldy ends of French bread that you meant to finish off with leftovers but never did? Do you have an unsightly pile of empty bread/bun sacks that you plan to re-use, that are stuffed into a drawer and pop out like a jack in the box when you open it? How about a jumble of twist-ties that serve no purpose?
Simply clean up your bread zone, organize the sacks, throw out old bread or defrost a loaf from your freezer. Heck, you could even make bread! Create home sanctuary by doing something with bread - preferably not just eating it, but if that's all you can come up with, I'm actually OK with that. Hey, that's the way the Kaiser rolls.
