Farmboy’s Belgian Bread is the best bread in town – it’s delicious with perfect texture and a wonderfully chewy crust, and it tastes just as good when it’s toast. It’s not cheap – $2.99 for a small loaf – but I love good bread.
However – the last two times I bought it, all the decent-sized slices were full of gaping holes. I hate that. I’m paying for a whole loaf, not a holy loaf!
It’s inconvenient too: I have to build my sandwich strategically so nothing falls out of the holes. I have to line the bread with lettuce or cheese slices to create a safety net for the smaller fillings like turkey chunks or peppers or pepper. Of course I end up with margarine and mustard only on the non-holy portions of the sandwich, unless I spread it on the lettuce instead of on the bread.
Even if I manage to construct a structually sound sandwich that doesn’t fall apart, it’s just not that satisfying to sink my teeth into a hole. You know what I mean?
I’ve invited Farmboy over here to read this entry. I’m sure they’ll have a Perfectly Good Explanation for why the best bread in town is not all there.
