Daily Prompt: Sliced Bread
Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?
My initial reaction to today’s Daily Prompt was instant laughter. It’s a crazy topic, dude!
Then, the next reaction was a question — when DID sliced bread become “SLICED BREAD”? So I did a little bit of research on it’s history and found this site: History of Sliced Bread.
It is quite interesting. It’s more than the fact that the bread WAS sliced but that the bread stayed fresh even in it’s thin configuration.
Anyway, to answer the question…to be the best thing since sliced bread, it must be an inconvenience to prepare before but because of innovation, has become a household staple. Well, for me, it would be instant cup noodles!!! It’s staple in my house, at least. I cannot imagine my life without them (especially instant pancit canton. Yum!)
Side Note: Now, I’m hungry. 🙂
