...since sliced bread

When you measure your interpersonal relationships, who can you really trust? They say that if you have 5 friends that are completely trustworthy, you are very lucky. I have more than that so I must be 'Pot o' Gold' special. They also say, "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer" which also makes sense. What a way to live! Is friendship the next best thing to sliced bread or does the bread take second place? That's up to you to decide. On this day in 1928 , sliced bread was sold for the first time by the Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri. Hopefully the first person to buy the sliced bread had a bunch of friends with whom he/she shared it.
