Relationships are like toast?

There’s an amusing conversation about the burnt toast on the cover for The Honeymoon’s Over at the Covers blog. An excerpt:

“It’s a metaphor. Like, if a relationship goes on for too long, it’s ruined, and there isn’t really any going back, that’s what this book is about.”

“That doesn’t make any sense. How was it a relationship in the first place?”

“Well, they were perfectly good pieces of toast, but they didn’t take it out of the toaster fast enough.”

“How was the relationship while they were in the Wonder Bread bag?”

“That was courtship, I guess.”

“So the toaster is a metaphor for the duration of the marriage?”

“No, it kind of symbolizes… it’s the wrong toaster maybe. Or the pieces of bread didn’t belong together.”
