A couple of weeks ago, I started a whole lot of 'crumpet' chatter on Twitter. You see, I met and fell in love with the crumpet in England. Not crumpet as in a sexy woman of desire, this one is of the buttery, toasty, yummy variety.
They're a spongy, porous, bread that is somehow related to the English muffin, and absolutely amazing toasted and topped with butter and honey or jam. I love these tasty little treats, but they're not very conducive to a reading snack, since you have to devote a whole hand to managing it.
And I love to snack while I'm reading! It's almost as much of a requirement as the book. And man, oh, man, do I love the salt! Chips, crackers, popcorn, (notice not a vegetable in the bunch? Cue the phone call from mom....now!) & cheesy poofs. Any item that can be guided into my gaping mouth with only the forefinger and thumb works just fine for me. Need to turn a page? I am quite skilled in the art of pinky-page-flipping!
Anyone else incorporate food into their reading?
