I Should Watch What I SAY

     I would never say anything to purposely offend someone. If I found out that I offended someone by one of my comments I would quickly apologize. I have found it's much easier to live this way and to live in myself.

     Now I don't like pumpernickel bread. I find it dry, course and crummy to the point of being very messy when you cut it. I whine about pumpernickel bread every time we have it. However , someone in my house happens to like pumpernickel bread so I will eat it all the while grumbling about it.

   
    Now this week we had a loaf of pumpernickel bread and of course I whined. This loaf was worse than most. It was really messy and crummy. Many crumbs fell out of the bag and they seem to get on the floor.

    Now a month ago I fell down the stairs. I wasn't hurt but four loaves of bread were squashed and some soup tins very badly crushed. So while I was complaining I was coldly reminded that I fell on this loaf of bread and that I should be thankful as it broke my fall. I shouldn't complain about the crumbs as it was my fault.

    From now on I better watch what I say!

  2. You are quite right Red. It is difficult because sometimes you hurt someone's feelings without realizing it.
    As for pumpernickel, have you ever tried toasting it? I find it much more palatable toasted.

    1. Toasting doesn't help. I think I should by pumpernickel bread from a store other than superstore!

  3. That is funny. We don't have pumpernickel bread here. It sounds as though I should be grateful.

  8. Oh, dear! The crummy bread is a small price to pay for not being crushed yourself, Red. Made me laugh. I too hope I don't offend anybody and apologize if I do. It's the right thing to do. :-)

    1. I didn't realize I fell on the bread until my wife was completing putting the groceries away. She was not happy to find all the crumbs on the floor.

    1. Kind of ironic, isn't it. I'm sure there are many people who love pumpernickel and I'm sure if I didn't buy it from superstore it would be much better.

  10. Oh you are just too funny! I always get a smile or a chuckle when I visit your blog. You're like me: honest to a fault, even when it gets me in trouble.

  11. Just made some, it seems to be an acquired taste. I like it toasted with butter and cream cheese.

    1. Home made bread of any kind is much better than what you buy. We have a bread maker and don't use it anymore.
