Does anyone want more bread?

Arlo and Janis - July 14, 2006

In our household the question Does anyone want more bread? when asked by me has one of two meanings.

In Cambridge it means: I want another piece of toast and while cutting it do you want one because I'll make it too. This interpretation is because in that kitchen I can reach the bread board, the loaves of bread, and the toaster oven from my seat.

In Gloucester it means: I want another piece of toast so please make me one and if you'd like one too, cut another slice. This is because the bread board is on rsc's side and the toaster oven is nearer him (he has to get up).
