Let’s start with unlimited bread sticks, shall we?
They call them limitless, but what happens when the kitchen runs out of them? Do you go to another restaurant? Do you get your meal for free for false advertising? That would be a disaster of a night for the establishment.
We call things countless the same way we often use the word “literal.” Given enough time and patience, most things on earth can be counted. Literally.
I’m talking about physical things, though. What about dreams? What about ideas? What about love?
What about that moment you look into the eyes of someone you love? It may only be a moment, but it can last forever in memory. Does that memory die when we do? I don’t think so.
BUT! Can bread sticks be limitless if you love them enough?
Now there’s a question.

So, the ideal relationship — looking into the eyes of someone you loved who happened to own a breadstick bakery/factory, lol.

Lol Linda! Now that’s a mystery isn’t it? 😛

This made me laugh because I know several people who use literally when they are speaking figuratively ALL.THE.TIME! Now I need some Olive Garden take-out. Wouldn’t get unlimited breadsticks unless I eat in but I only want one anyways. Yum!!

I love how tender that was towards the end, about memories…then, BAM! Back to bread sticks, ha ha!

Love, ideas, dreams… I think those things live on in books, blogs, or expanding out into the universe as energy. My only experience with “unlimited” bread sticks has been with Olive Garden. I only find them good when they’re warm.

I am not a lover of bread sticks, so I hope not. 😏 Please don’t all jump on me 😂😂😂

I am the odd ball and enjoy breadsticks, but they are not on radar for desiring limitless amounts. Now, chocolate………

great response to this prompt and I hope that bread sticks are unlimited as well as love

LOL, such an incredible take on the prompt! I (almost) literally use the word “literal” in the wrong context countless times.

Thanks, Astrid! I used “literal” in the wrong context a lot before I became an editor. Now I [redacted] don’t let myself. 😉 😀
