All of my life I have heard people say that something is better than sliced bread. Now, I understand that sliced bread is a nifty thing. I mean, you take it out of the package and it’s ready for a sandwich! How great is that? Nevertheless, what was the best thing before sliced bread?

I was visiting my parents last year, when my mom and I were standing in the kitchen talking. She was telling me about how much she cooks with her microwave. "It's the best thing since sliced bread," she adds.

Puzzled, I look at my mom and ask, "What was the best thing before sliced bread?"

"Sex," she replied. We both giggle for a second and then I became silent.

"Mom, you're saying that sliced bread is better than sex?" She silently glares at Dad and we both started laughing hysterically. Poor Dad.
