I pulled down the toaster from on top of the refrigerator and put it on the counter to make frozen waffles for breakfast. As I was moving it, I noticed all the crumbs at the bottom of the toasting slots. It just looked like crumbs, but I bet it was really gross. I’ve had that toaster for about four years and have never cleaned it. Do the crumbs get sanitized by the heat when the toaster is used? I’m telling myself yes because I don’t feel like cleaning the toaster. It seems like one of those tasks that looks like it would be simple then proves more complicated once you get started.
I put the coffee maker next to the toaster on the counter so I could make coffee, obviously. I don’t have much counter space in this apartment, and I miss my old apartment every time I am made aware of how little space there is. As I spooned coffee into the filter basket, a few grounds fell into the toaster. I started the coffee maker, pushed the waffles into the toaster, and finished getting ready.
