Toast has been made!
Egg O has personally selected the finest pieces.
And here are Doll Splinter and Egg O lounging on lightly toasted slices of sour dough bread. Their heads are resting on soft pillowy chamomile tea bags. Their coverlets are pieces of feathery white tissue.
Egg O is expounding on the benefits of natural yeast.
“The important thing in a mattress,” he says, “is springiness. Now with your bought yeast the rise is too fast and can only lead to eventual hardness and crumbs of discomfort in the nether regions whereas with this-” (and he thumped the toast with both hands to demonstrate) ” you get bounce and satisfaction.”
He rolled his eyes and almost purred.
Doll Splinter smiled and the Spindly cat stretched out his paw to pat a falling crumb.
So now all that they have to do is wait.
As time rolls on.
