I don’t remember where we got the phrase, but our family often asks when serving food, “Do you want a sliver, a slice or a slab?” That relates to pound cake or just about anything. And it doesn’t escape my attention that we do actually have such a choice.
We’re a slab country, with slab people. There are sliver countries with sliver people (who didn’t choose this). And there are sliver people in America.
Why don’t we all takes slices? Would that spread the pound cake around a little better?
