‘OMGosh, Dad!’

Frank froze, knife with butter held over his bread. ‘What?’

‘Your bread.’ Sophie pointed.

He looked at the bread. ‘I know, it’s got a hole in it. It’s not the end of the world.’

He motioned the knife towards the bread.

‘Wait!’ shouted Sophie, hustling Frank out the way and snapping a picture of the bread on her smartphone. ‘Bread with a heart-shaped hole. This will so go viral on my Instagram.’

Frank stared at the piece of bread that was now more famous than he ever would be.

He shrugged and spread the butter over it.

  1. Such a great message. Man does not live by bread alone, he needs butter to go with it. Loved the instagram touch to the tale.
