Today, Andrew and I volunteered as part of the “Baker of the Day” program at Great Harvest Bread Company. A great, if exhausting, time was had by all. We worked the ten to one shift, which gave us a lot to do. Next time, I think we’ll pick an earlier shift so we can help more with the mixing and baking (I’m not really into counter work).
Wow. Attitude boy.

And of course, Miss B was busy while we were gone:
Andrew did a great job and worked hard. He had great time working the sidewalk, trying to get people to stop and buy bread. I think my favorite riff of his was:
I like free stuff. I bet you do, too. Come in for free bread slices. Not the whole loaf, because that would be wasting money.
You know what? His efforts did work. In fact, when one person pulled into the parking lot, he rolled down the window and told Andrew that he was buying bread just because Andrew was trying so hard.
