Good Morning, people. My weekend has begun with a somewhat cindery moment. Last evening I watched the last episodes of "Loki." It's okay, not great, though they do say Eli's favorite word (shit) every now and then. I got the coffee ready for this morning, ( I always do that the night before, so I just have to turn on the coffee maker). And popped the ingredients into the bread maker so I could wake up to freshly baked bread. However, this time I decided to go with a standard white bread, rather then Italian. Big mistake. Around 3 in the morning, I woke up smelling smoke (insert Eli's favorite word). Going downstairs, I found smoke pouring from the top of the bread maker (you know the word you need to insert). During its final rise, the loaf had increased in size so much the dough cascaded down the sides of the baking pan, onto the heating elements. There was no fire, I don't even think there was a chance of one start, but that burnt bread was stinking up the house badly and I was worried the smoke alarm was going to go off. Damn!
When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

The Baking Accident
And after my weekend is over, when I go back to work on Wednesday, things will have changed. We're going back to wearing masks. People are not happy. When one of the associates in my department began complaining, I shot back at him, "well you know who's to blame? Those dumb, fucking Republicans who aren't getting vaccinated." In case you are wondering? He's one of those Republicans. That's right. He believes The Big Lie, but nothing about Covid. He's one of those who believes he's immune. What he really needs is a 2 week vacation in ICU.

" "well you know who's to blame? Those dumb, fucking Republicans who aren't getting vaccinated." LMAO!!!! I could kiss you.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear of the bread woes, shall I bring you a loaf?
Well, I'm just being honest. And thanks, but I'll just bake another after I clean out the pan.Delete
I agree with Maddie! Haha! I wish I could just say that kind of thing. I admire you for it!Delete
I think a lot of places here are going back to masks. Luckily, I never stopped wearing mine.
We're also going to have to step in front of the little camera so it can take our temperature. Damn.Delete
Eeww, while the smell of coffee and freshly baked bread in the morning is heavenly, that smoking pile of dog doo would stink pretty rotten - and I would hate to be the one to have to clean it up!ReplyDelete
Yes, it is rather foul smelling.Delete
Good thing you did not bake the bread while you were not at home!ReplyDelete
I don't think it would have actually caught fire, but the stink is terrible.Delete
Good luck with the next loaf! Bet it was kinda scary.
And everybody is going back to masks. That's why I never stopped wearing mine. The Delta is gonna spike this joint and we're not even in September yet. Wait until all the summer get-together, festivals and concerts are done...
And more and more companies are demanding their associates get vaccinated.Delete
