The Toaster Adventures Continue
I experienced every piece of toast I’ve ever had. Rye, wheat, garlic, dry, buttered, with jam. Not serialized, one memory at a time, but all at once, layered on top of each other, nestling against each other.

“You still with us, ” she asked.
“Time is an illusion,” I replied.
