Hot Cross Buns
I was in a crowded office kitchenette this morning, squishing my hot cross buns flat so they would fit in the toaster.
"Hot cross buns, already!" said a judgy woman behind me.
I was immediately defensive. I didn't want people thinking I was the type of person who has to eat hot cross buns the instant the supermarkets start selling them, even though that was 80% of the reason why I baked them.
"No," I said. "Actually, these are hot secular buns." (Because Easter was far away I'd decorated them with tennis ball patterns instead of crosses.)
She said, "Oh, you're right. They're hot circular buns."
