A NEW TOASTER
more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
Yesterday as usual I wanted to make two toasts to eat with my cheese at lunchtime. In fact we never have breakfast but rather a brunch. I put two thick slices of bread in my toaster and nothing happened. I pushed again and again, nothing to do my toaster had died. Peace to its soul !
I have to say it was not the youngest one anymore. I certainly had two others before, and one I especially remember it was a gift of my dear mother. My mother used to buy me things which didn't fit at all into our house, of course without asking what I would like. I needed a new toaster and asked for a white one, because our kitchen is red and white, and also a long one to be able to toast French bread and also rolls. Of course she fulfilled my wish and I got a new toaster for Christmas. When I had opened the box I found a square one, just for two slices of bread but the worst thing was it was dark green with pink roses ! It fitted to my kitchen like a fist on an eye ! She was rather offended when I told her that this thing wasn't exactly what I had wanted for my red kitchen. She loved green. So what did I do, I gave this toaster to a friend and bought a new white one.
So yesterday, the first thing in the morning I did, I went to a household appliances store and fortunately found the right toaster immediately !
This was the old one of which Mr. G. has to get rid of, presented by cat Pookie who doesn't care abut toast and toasters.
and the new one which works perfectly, I tried it out for lunch and my toasts were perfect ! Tonight we can toast on my new toaster ! Mr. G. doesn't like toasts he pretends they crack in his head when he eats them, he loves soft bread. His head is very sensible (apparently).
