Wheeeeeeeeeeee! Splat.

So yesterday morning I put two pieces of bread in the toaster, went to put on my makeup, came back and found only one piece of toast in the toaster.

Now, I don't do well in the mornings because my brain doesn't turn on for several hours after I've woken up, so I just stood there staring at the toaster for a while. Then I looked around the kitchen (why, I'm not sure) and back at the toaster.

It was only after a good thirty or forty seconds that I decided to look on the floor next to the toaster, where I did indeed find the toast.

Apparently my toaster likes to shoot one piece of toast reaaaaaaaaaaaaally high out of the toaster.

Or maybe some pieces of toast just like to bungee jump without the rope.

And, yes, in case you're wondering. I still ate the floor toast. I was hungry.

UH-MAY-ZING! I would love a toaster that got angry and threw things at me...and of course you still ate it! Who wouldn't?

Canadian electric grid. The power is too weak to toast properly (too many Mounties on horseback or something block the signal strength), so the manufacturer amped up the electronics and voila--bread on the floor. Of course that's just my hypothesis. I could be wrong. :)

I LOL'd when I read this-- I really could imagine you just kind of looking around going "well, uh, hmm, yeah." It's happened to me before-- but in the middle of the day when I am supposed to be awake!

teehee-- still giggling!

Mlle, shall I send you said angry throwing toaster? ;)

Well Michael, it is hard to get the grid working in our igloos. Especially when we have to get the dogs from the dogsled to power it! :D

Awake, shmake Kas! ;)

Hahahaha! One time I was eating a bagel and I set it down on the table. I came back a couple minutes later to find half of it gone. The first place I looked was the ground, but nothing. Turns out I found my puppy munching on the other half trying to swallow it as fast as he could :) hahaha

victoria: you have a poltergeist. For sure. like that movie "paranormal activity" maybe...

Michael: toasters operate on a spring and timer mechanism... the spring would not pop up any more even if the toaster were wired into a nuclear submarine's power reserve operating at unlimited power flow.

victoria: what did you put on the toast?

FSU, that's way cuter than a crazy toaster! :)

Charles, it's more of a Casper the friendly ghost poltergeist though, right? Otherwise I won't be able to sleep.

And, I think it was Becel. You know, fake butter.

You didn't get This Toaster did you..?

I'm not good in mornings myself. I find porridge is easier to outwit than toast.

We have phantom toast in our house too sometimes - usually find it down the back of the toaster.

Not like Casper.... like the demon in Paranormal Activity.

Have you seen that movie? I have NEVER been so scared by a movie in my life.

Yeah, I've seen it. That's why I'm making sure to point out to whatever toaster entity is listening that MY toaster has more of a Casper ghost than a you know what movie ghost.

(I hated the "standing next to the bed all night" night)
