Mr Bread Miss Bread

Oh anyone else feel free to add the wedding vows dialogue to this.


Awwww. This is so cute. After that story, how could I let my teeth be the cause of of a tragic accident that would mutilate and transform them both.

Well, first you have to toast the bread, then get your PB AND J.

Now the super duper secret...... get some brown sugar and add that to your Sammich.

It's Simply DELICIOUS

You don't.

Making a sandwich is an action. Actions are not things you "show not tell". That refers to emotions.

ex.
Telling: I finished making the sandwich while she told me everything. I was horrified by what she told me.
-----

Showing: My hands shook as I unscrewed the jar. "Tell me." I said. "Really."

There was only silence from where she sat in the other room. My knife was already out of the jar before she spoke. "Well, I guess it's best to," she said. "Okay."

And the awful truth was out. It was exactly as I thought. When she said the name of the person responsible for all of this, I heard the clatter before I noticed that I'd sliced through the bread I was spreading the jelly onto, and my hand had hit the plate.
"What was that?" she asked.
"Nothing, just..." I started. "Nothing." I'd meant to cut it that way. In thirds, as opposed to halves.
I put the two sides together and wiped my eyes before I left the kitchen to join her.


Showing makes you feel like you're watching the scene as it happens. Telling makes you feel like you're hearing about it later.

An instructional thing can't really "show not tell" because there's no story.

Telling -> "Hearing that person's name was difficult for me"
Showing -> "My hand crashed into the plate when she said that name, and I didn't even notice for a minute"

Telling -> "I was so upset I cried"
Showing -> "I wiped my eyes before I left the kitchen"

---------------

Making the sandwich itself can be a way of showing.

A, B, C, and D are best friends. D dies. PB&J was D's favorite food. Years later, something happens and A is upset about it, so she makes a PB&J - maybe for the first time in a long time. This can show that she misses D. That she's thinking of D. That maybe she feels like if D were here, they would have the best solution to the problem she's dealing with now.

Think of the gif sets on Tumblr of A making that PB&J and crying, edited together with images of D and something comforting they said once, in a flashback to when D was alive. You can probably think of some moments like that from shows you know (like characters who wear their dead friend's earrings or something. ... wow, I can name three of those and all of them involve Yuuki Kaji.)

Mr. Carver was on his 702nd invention of what to do with peanuts. His peanut enamel was a real hit for the automobile industry. A little girl was walking by and popped in to talk to the famous peanut master. Mr. Carver gave the little girl some bread with an amazing new invention he called butter like peanut. The little girl said... "It could taste better, Mister Peanut Master". Mr. Carver said, "Excuse me, Young Miss?" The little girl said, "I'll go home and be right back". Mr. Carver watched as she ran away with the bread with butter like peanut on it. Some time later, the little girl came back with black hands and a basket full of a squished berries. Mr. Carver was a bit confused. The little girl said, "See... I squished the berries, then scooped them up with the bread and then put it next to the butter like peanut". Mr. Carver looked with curiosity. The little girl said, "Try it, Mister Peanut Master" Mr. Carver tried it and smiled. Maybe berries and nuts are good together!





*Carver invented a crazy number of Peanut things, but as protection for ideas was non-existent in America back then, Carver never wrote the recipes down except perhaps if a company needed a recipe to reproduce it. Just like not sharing a martial art down a generation makes it go *poof*, the same for hundreds of inventions with Peanuts by Mr. Carver. We'll never know what crazy useful things he had in his head. Imagine a coating that didn't conduct electricity for circuit boards. It'd be kind of useless then, but it'd be useful now, lol. I mean, come on, Carver invented Peanut Enamel that still shines up 50 years after it is applied. What kinds of inventions were in his head?
