Soft Boiled, with a Spoon

Having boiled his entire supper, the man sat down with a spoon. He swallowed most of it up, wiping his mouth with a thin rag when he was done. For dessert, he thought, I ought to try something hard. He thought for a moment about hard things he might enjoy having for dessert, but in the end could think of nothing.

Boiled bread, then, was what the man had for dessert, and like his dinner he consumed it with a spoon.
