Let Them Eat Toast : Riding The Riff

Welcome to my website!

Take your shoes off, relax, and check out my site.

If you're looking for Tom  Macklin, the musician and writer, you've come to the right place. If you're looking for the "Lawn Mower Riding Mayor of Avon Park" (yes, there is such a guy. He races riding lawn mowers. Apparently, they still don't have cable in some parts of Florida) you've got the wrong place.

I split up my time between being a musician-teacher and working on my writing career. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments regarding the site.

Don't forget to scroll down below to check out my blog "Riding the Riff."

On second thought, put your shoes back on. It's starting to smell in here.

Let Them Eat Toast

by Thomas Macklin on 05/23/10

The new toaster's here! The new toaster's here!

And what a toaster it is. It's not just your ordinary toaster. No, not for this household. The folks at Oster have guaranteed me "excellent toast the first time, every time with advanced Toaster Technology.

That's right. I have advanced Toaster Technology in my humble abode.

Sure, these scientists could have been working on a cure for cancer, or finding ways to clean up oil spills in the Gulf, but no, they have spent their years of combined upper degree education on following through my lifelong dream of the perfect piece of toast.

And this toaster is not just for toast. Aux contraire. I have buttons on my toaster that allow me to toast bagels, frozen stuff, and if I just want to warm-up a piece of something without toasting it, I can do that, too.

Is this a great country or what? No wonder we have to watch out for those illegal aliens sneaking across the Arizona border. It's not just that America is the land of opportunity. No, it's that land of advanced Toaster Technology, too! Build that wall, darn it!

Did I mention the seven shades of toasting that I have to choose from? Or the cancel button- just in case I'm half-way thought toasting and then remember, "Wait! I don't want toast. I want an Eggo."

Throw in the dual auto-adjusting bread guides, the removable crumb tray, and anti-jamming feature (not to mention the durable brushed stainless steel and silver exterior) and I have set the bar in my neighborhood as the Supreme Ruler and King of the Toaster.

Subjects wishing for an audience should make an appointment.

Hows 2 o'clock on Fri sound? Do I need to bring an offering of some kind? Maybe a nice sourdough or rye?
