Butter, Scraped Over Too Much Bread

"I feel... thin. Sort of stretched, like... butter scraped over too much bread."
~ B. Baggins

Isn't this a much more interesting way of saying, "I'm busy and tired"?
I thought so. :)

What a fascinating word picture!

And yet, my knee-jerk reaction to the thought is a sense of thankfulness. I am so glad that I'm spreading the butter generously WHERE I AM. So what if I can't cover the whole piece? I'm doing my best, and that is all I can do.

Wow, Rachel... what a good thought! I'm really working on spreading the butter thickly on part of the bread, instead of trying to cover the whole piece, too! :)
