Loaf is in the Air

“Bread? You want to write a story about bread?  Are you running out of dough?”

I knew that was coming.  

“It’s for my weekly fiction write.  I don’t knead to give you any explanations.”

“So it’s naan of my business then?”

“Cut the crepe, I asked because I value your opinion.”

“Really? Cos your response was a bit crusty.”

I should have walked away but I was on a roll now.

“We could go on for flours but I need ideas.”

“Deflecting, now that is a bread herring.”


“Use that rye sense of humour of yours and stop loafing around.”

Written for Friday Fictioneers Word Count : 100.

I know, I know you are all reading this and going "crumb again?". Some of you probably want to bánh mì from writing again but it was getting really late and I wanted put an entry in, even an half-baked one.

I still need support for my entry in the Indian Blogger Awards 2017 run by Indiblogger. Please vote for me by commenting on my entry page here.

And if you are still crusty here is a peace offering by Bread

  4. Dear Subroto,

    Hot crossed puns in not one, but two languages. I'm impressed. Groans and laughter as you've spread it on thick. You heel. On a roll indeed. Definitely from the upper crust. Oh dear! You have me lowering myself to your pun level. ;)

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  5. Some people would have given us a few puns, but you gave us a wholemeal of them. As for that Indian Blogger award, I hope you baguette, Subroto.
