STORY IDEA #287: Smart Toaster

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#287: Smart Toaster

In a post-apocalyptic world, there is a toaster that awaits in a café for its first customer in hundreds of years.

Its whole purpose is to toast, but there is nobody to toast for.

But then he sees movement in one of the people in the cafe who's been sleeping for hundreds of years. He decides that it’s his mission to make his way across the café to serve this customer.
But the person turns out to be dead. Still. Of course. But the movement was actually a large bug crawling around under the leathery skin of its face.
