I used to think that for me to feel rich, all I needed was a four slice toaster. I got one, years ago, and it was good. Last night late, the only one awake in the house except for one irritated cat I evicted from a pile of blankets so I could put them on the bed, I made a snack with the toaster and wondered if I would feel richer if I had a new toaster, one where the push slide didn’t pop off every now and then, one that looked more presentable. I decided no, that is too rich.

But a four slice toaster that could toast bagels wouldn’t be too bad.

(I originally typed the title for this as ‘taosters’ which I thought would be a completely different post, but maybe… it wouldn’t.)
