When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinnerevery now and then. And I remember one night when my mom placed a plate ofeggs, sausage and extremely burnt toast in front of my dad. I remember 1 to see if anyone noticed! 2 all my dad did was to reach for his toast, 3 at my mom and ask me how my day was at school.
When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom 4 to my dad for burning the toast. And I’ll 5 forget what he said, “Baby, I love burnttoast.” Later that night, I went to kiss Dad good night and I asked him if hereally 6 his toast burnt. He wrapped me up in his 7 and said, “Debbie, your mom had a 8 day at work today and she’s really tired. Andbesides, a little burnt toast never 9 anyone! In bed that night, I thought about thescene at dinner and the 0 my dad showed to my mom.
