When I was young, I discovered that toast can be enjoyed without spread. I would pull the crust off, then split the toast in two (widthwise), so that both toasted sides became separated. Each side would then be eaten slowly, carefully, so that as much toasted surface would come in contact with my tongue as possible. The best part was feeling the rough surface graze my tastebuds while the soft centre became latched to the roof of my mouth.
I had always believed that such an eating method was unique, and never thought that anyone else would know of this. However, Allison told me that this is her preferred method of eating toast, and now I understand the method as being more esoteric than unique. I wonder who else knows about such a thing, and how they came about that knowledge.
