The production for all three stories was just excellent. The dinner story fit the quirky just right.

God shaped box was soul crushing, in a remarkable I'm so thankful to hear stories such as this one soal crushing kind of way.

Thank you Drabble cast for another great set of stories

It may have been a little unfair to the first and last stories to sandwich such a powerful, dark piece between them.

I eat eggs for breakfast every morning (slow carb diet), but I could eat an entire skillet full of the Joy of Cooking Southern Cornbread recipe. No flour (gluten free). For the "buttermilk," I put two tablespoons of white vinegar in a measuring cup, then fill to two cups with coconut milk. Let sit for five minutes. Surprisingly good - so good my dad, who was visiting and extremely skeptical, declared it the best cornbread he'd ever eaten. No sugar - that doesn't belong. But uh, then you slather it in whipped honey and butter.

What I'm saying is, now I'm dreaming of cornbread, and I can't have it for three more days. Thanks a lot.

Oh, and fruit. Can't eat fruit till then, either ...

Wait, what were we talking about?

Thanks so much for these replies. These stories were a blast to put together, so I'm glad to hear people enjoyed listening to them as well.
A couple fun notes on the production, for any who care:
-The egg cracking effect was just a regular chicken egg, but pitched down about an octave and with a bit of reverb added to give a sense of size.
-The sound of the salmon hacked up in the last story was created by taking a wet dishcloth and flopping it around a bit.
-The sound of fruit dropping into a basin was me, well, dropping random fruit and veggies into a pan.
