Incident at breakfast

Cake! For breakfast?

sunny 28 °C

BREAKFAST WEDNESDAY? I like breakfast, loads to choose from, all my favourites oh and one of those slow moving toasting machines. You know the ones, a conveyor belt with bread on under a heating element. Got it sussed you see, put your toast in then toddle off and get your fruit juice, cereal, fruit or whatever. By the time you've taken those to your table your bread has been successfully toasted and is waiting for you in the collection tray. Except on this occasion all it deposited was warm bread. Hmmm! Oh well put it in again perhaps the other way up this time. No problem I'll do a second circuit of the extensive buffet and maybe pick up some scrambled eggs etc. Returned to the toaster yet again to find slightly warmer bread than last time. What's going on? Ah I spy a darkness control. Let's ramp that up a bit and put the warmer bread under again. Oh well a 3rd circuit and it's either funny looking cold sausages, meat and cheese or cake. With Jo shaking her head at me for bringing cake to the breakfast table, I made my way back towards the toasting conveyor. Suddenly uniformed resort staff were dashing past me, not quite in a state of panic but hurrying in a concerned manner. I could smell it first, then I could see this acrid, grey smoke snaking it's way around the breakfast buffet area. People were coughing and heading in the opposite direction. As I went towards the toaster I saw several members of staff surrounding the toaster and one of them had the charred remains of two pieces of bread clasped between tongs held out in front of her with smoke coming off them. I changed direction and selected another piece of cake and went back to our table. "Where's your toast?" enquired Jo. "You should've got some it smells really good!" "I decided against it love, got more cake instead
