“Is there any chance I can get butter on the side?”

“This croissant is already loaded with butter.”

“Yes, but that butter only went into the composition of the croissant. I need surface butter that I can bite into, you understand.”

“I’m sorry, but we don’t have pads of butter available.”

“You could have just said that when I first asked, instead of insinuating that I don’t know how much butter goes into baking a croissant.”

“I’m sorry, I’ve been having a bad day.”

“Not to worry, I’ve decided that I don’t want butter with my croissant after all.”


“Was that a sarcastic hooray?”

“Maybe. Sorry.”


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
