This past weekend I discovered that if you go to Wheatfields Bakery, at the corner of 9th and Vermont, very early in the morning, they quite possibly will have just taken the "everyday french" bread out of the ovens. And when you ask them to go ahead and slice the loaf they will tell you "it's too hot".
Which means you will have to drive home with it, in an open bag, in your car. This will make your car smell like a bread bakery the whole way home.
And when you get it home, you will be forced to cut off the end right away...
... and slather it with butter and pop it in your mouth.
If no one is awake in your house you can even do both ends. No one will be the wiser. Your secret is safe with me. As I know mine is with you.
