Life is like ......

Some like it just barely browned and still slightly soft.  Others like it evenly browned and a little crunchy.  Still others like it very brown and quite hard.  And lastly, there are a few of us who like it partially burned so that it scrapes the roof of our mouths with that slightly bitter blackness sweetened with just the right amount of butter (not the fake stuff!)  There are always crumbs......... sometimes it's soft, scratchy, light, dark, patterned, half done, overdone....... By now your mind is either way in the gutter and you're wondering what sick thing Windy has discovered and  you're looking up "toast" to see what ridiculously disgusting thing the Urban Dictionary has said it is...... or you just know that I am talking about simple toast!  Okay, I just looked it up myself and was surprised to find nothing disgusting and actually one definition of toast is "a very hot guy."  Hmm, Storm is toast.  Yumm.

Some people like to give you just the crumbs.... ever had one of those relationships?  Pfft.  We get  burned out like toast that we've pushed down too many times to get it just right, but we left it in there way too long.   Right in the garbage that goes!   I bet the garbage's most common food is burnt toast.  Unless your mom was like mine and we'd smell the burn and hear the near frantic scritch scratch, scrape and she's standing over the sink with the toast and a darkened knife until the toast is a little less black but looks biffed and battered and frankly, like someone took a lit 60 grit sandpaper to it.  Apparently my mom never outgrew this habit because when my daughter was little, my mom gave her a piece of toast like that and she said, "Gwamaw, this toast is dirty!"  Obviously, we kept the toaster on "light" at our house.

Ever have somebody change the setting on the toaster and then it gets burned or not done enough so you press it out down for the 2nd time and it ends up burned even though you're standing right there watching it?  The problem is you were thinking about something else so you didn't notice until you started smelling the bitter burn!  

I know the popular phrase, "your ass is grass"......... but, if you're a D/s wife, it's more likely your ass is toast.  But, unlike toast, your ass does go back to the way it was:  all fresh with no pink and ready to be made toasty again!

This post was inspired by the phrase, "I’m afraid that there is no cure for burnout. After all, you can’t untoast toast."  -- Ella Dawson  

How do you like your toast and are you feeling like someone has pushed you down one too many times in the toaster?

  1. Hi Windy, what a great analogy. Yum, toast lol. My favourite comfort food. I like mine quite browned, but not too much and crunchy.

    1. Hi, Roz! Ah, yes, comfort food, for sure! And butter? Or what the flip do you put on it over there on the other side of the world? :) Hugs, Windy

  2. We don't have a toaster, so no pushing down twice. We have a toaster oven with a glass door, so I can peek in and see how it's doing.

    Hugs,

    1. Hi, Hermione! Laughing.... A toaster oven didn't even occur to me. Duh. I've never had one. But sounds like you still have to keep an eye on it? And then flip it? I should know this stuff since I claim to cook some, but I am not an expert. lol Hugs, Windy

  3. One of my readers recently commented that she can't stand the smell,of burned toast. So I had to double-check whose blog I was reading. *laugh*

    I'm not feeling too terribly toasted right now, but that's because I just got back from a long weekend away with my hubby. I have my days though, when I feel burnt to a crisp by the time I fall into bed at night. So I feel ya.

    1. Hi, Feve! hahaha I guess I should clarify that very burned toast that makes the fire alarm go off is not a smell that I favor either. Just a slight burn on parts is what I like. lol

      Glad you're not too toasted right now. I shall ask you if that has changed when you get to letter Z in your challenge. lol

      I'm not feeling too burned right now.....but, I do sometimes! Just trying to get my writing going a bit again.

      Wonderful you and hubby had a nice weekend away! Refreshing! Yay! Hugs, Windy

  5. I'm laughing at your description of your mum scraping the toast, just what I do. When my children were young I would try and do it quietly in the hope that they would not notice!
    I have been guilty of accepting breadcrumbs at times in relationships.

    1. Hi, Alice! Yay, I'm glad that made you laugh because I thought that was the best/funniest part of this post! You made my day. I did not fail as a writer. LOL Whew. You seem like the kind of gal who deserves the whole serving in relationships, Alice. Hugs, Windy
