Sometimes NaBloPoMo comes up with a good theme to blog about. This month it is "ties".

It could be about "the ties that bind". Or it could be about the men's accessory.

Today I'm going to talk about the twist-tie on a loaf of bread.

We have an ongoing battle in our house about this little piece of paper-cover wire or the plastic clip, depending on your loaf of bread.

I take it off and throw it away and then just twist the bag closed.

Tom puts is back on. Twisting the wire ever so neatly and tightly.

I'm sure there is a metaphor of our marriage in there somewhere.

What do you do with the tie?

ugh - i throw the damn thing away. twist the bag and fold flap so that the bread is sitting on it. and, i get the bread that's wrapped in thin plastic wrap inside the bag --- i am always ripping off the inner wrap until it's down to the level of the first piece of bread.
heaven help us.

Hmm. Switch to tortillas--they come in ziplocs.
