Toast

Toast is a favorite medium of deities for communication to the mortal world. It is also a delicious breakfast food. And lunch food, and dinner food, and snack food. 

But I can never seem to get the toaster to cooperate. Especially if I'm using an unfamiliar toaster, I have to hover over it and poke at it constantly to catch my toast in the 1 second stage between "cold" and "ashes." Fortunately, poet Piet Hein has come up with a solution for me, and for anyone else who has this problem.

TIMING TOAST
There's an art to knowing when.
Never try to guess.
Toast until it smokes and then
twenty seconds less.

Forget about killing Hitler; when time travel is invented, it's most popular use will be toast.

So how do you like your toast? Just warm? Black and crispy? What toppings? Or are you a toast hater?

  1. I like it just starting to get brown that's my favorite. Unless its for a sandwitch that I plan to eat much later then its better to not be crispy cuz that turns to mush lol.

  8. This post was nice. But I`m not really into the regular toast. I prefer French toast. It`s a dish of white bread soaked in beaten eggs and then fried. I usually add cinnamon to beaten eggs, to make it taste awesome.

  12. It seems as if it was toasted a little off proportion. The only part toasted is the centerish..
