Mmm, nothing like breakfast toast. Or anytime toast. Unless it’s burnt. The lesson of this visual mantra is simple: Don’t KEEP getting burned! You don’t put burnt toast back into Ye Olde Toaster, do ye? Of courseth not!

I believe some Einstein once said that insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results. Again I say, don’t keep getting burned!

While is not saying not to trust others, we just recommend proceeding in life with caution. If someone keeps burning you, don’t keep going back for more. Don’t let them minimize the damage or excuse their behavior. Just watch out for them, until you see them adjust their Toaster Setting to a much less charring setting.

One parting thought: My grandfather, who would routinely scorch the toast, would always comment, “Carbon is good for your blood.” I’m not sure how that applies here, but take it for what it’s worth. And watch your tan!
