Jam Delivery Device
Thursday, March 16, 2006

This past weekend we went into the city for what I refer to as my "sanity recharge."

One of the repercussions of this, since we go grocery shopping on Sat., is that we have basically no groceries for this week. Thus I ran out of bagels.

As I was looking through our nearly depleted food reserves, I saw our bread. This is the wife's supper. Yes I know, don't get me started. I have had many discussions about her lack of food for supper, but that is the way she wants it. But, I digress.

Knowing that if I wanted to eat something, anything for breakfast, I'd have to eat some toast, it struck me. I'm not particularly fond of bagels or bread or much of any breakfast food. They are nothing but jam delivery devices for me.

So, I ate the jam, which was on the bread

Now, what's the point of all this? Nothing. Just had a realization and thought I'd share

Anyone else out there like me?

For me, bread exists primarily as a peanut butter delivery system.

This can also be of celery, apples, spoons... many things.

You have a point. One of the best things about toast is the Jam. And the best thing about a bagel is the cream cheese.
I love the taste of yeasty sourdough or rye bread. But plain old white sandwich bread. That's the worst!
