Someone not of this parish has admitted to dunking toast in tea and my mind is blown.
You do need to allow the smaller lapses on a Friday, you know.
As long as s/he's dunking the toast in vodka every other day of the week,I'd just let this one slide tbh.
You don't want to earn yourself a rep as a toastalitarian, do you?
It's been going on for 45 years, he said!
And there was me hoping for a bit of this:
I fitted a laser cut filter inside our toaster so that the toast we make has an image of Jesus burnt onto it, just in case Jehovah's Witnesses call when we're eating breakfast and I'd be able to send them off with fleas in their ears after they've admitted their toast doesn't come out like that.
Yes as long as it is into drinking chocolate.
I can't begin to explain how the acquaintance of @emilystrange is just plain wrong. Not even wrong. Just..... No. There are no words.
That is an abomination. I shall pray for this deluded soul.
Ha haha haha
Nooooo not with butter on.
Is it an Upper Crust thing?
It HAS to be with butter!
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large tray of toast. The nun posted a sign on the toast tray, "Take only one. God is watching." Further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. One child whispered to another, "Take all you want. God is watching the toast."
Was it their toast or have they been dunking yours on the quiet?
The inconsistency of supreme deities. Reminds me of the Emo Philips quote "When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way, so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me."
It was definitely not MY toast! And it was buttered.
Until I was yesterday years old, I did not know people did this.
Mother served us bread and milk - soggy and worse than slime for breakfast!
Dunking anything is just horrible and revolting.
Soggy lumps at the bottom of a drink make me gag.
Wet bread, biscuits, cake? Bleurgh.
I don't even like to see people doing it.
A couple of years ago, I realised that instinctively I always avoided even passing toast or biscuits or cake over the top of my drink in case crumbs fell in.
I now realise that I sound slightly mad.
Apart from the obvious horror of the whole thing (buttery tea and soggy toast), bleugh! I would allow toast cut up small as pseudo-croutons in my soup (tomato of course). And of course dipped into runny egg. Then I remembered; don't the Tibetanese have rancid Yak's milk in their tea? (Heave! Vom!)
