Ah, the smell of toast

ttoommyy | May 25, 2011 07:10 AM

I work for a huge nationally known company that for some reason cannot see its way to building a pantry for the end of the floor where my group sits. To use the pantry on our floor, we have to walk the equivalent of a NYC block (no kidding). That said, we have to make do with what we have in the area where I sit. We have our own Keurig coffee maker and a toaster. Whenever someone makes toast, no matter what time of day it is, people will comment on the smell and how good it is. I have never heard one person complain about the smell of toast. For me, it is a comforting smell. I suspect this is true for others as well. What's more, whenever someone makes cinnamon raisin toast, it's even better. People will come out of their offices as if summoned by the smell of it. It's amazing. Maybe if we pumped the smell of toasting bread into the air of the general populace the world would be a happier place.
