The Mystery Of The Loaf

Yesterday, someone placed a large loaf of bread, commercially baked and wrapped, in between my front door and my storm door, squishing it a bit to get the door closed.  There was no note or flyer of any kind, and the bread is not a brand I recognize.
I called the 2 or 3 people I know who might possibly have dropped off an extra loaf of bread for no apparent reason, but everyone was just as mystified as I.
I have no clue.
And because I have no clue, I don't dare use the bread, as there are too many weirdos in this world -- and too many nasty 8th graders who wouldn't be above putting something awful in a loaf of bread.
Nor do I dare give it away, for fear of the same.
So, if someone really did leave bread as a "nice" thing to do, I hope they contact me today.  Otherwise, the bread is going to be dumped into the yard waste recycling bin and will be wasted.
(Seriously, other than someone who is desperately hungry, would anyone today eat food left by an unknown source?  Just too risky.)

    1. Yes, but what if there's something nasty in it? I don't want to hurt the birds either.

  2. It wasn't me, and that's a good point about the birds. I don't blame you for not using the bread. Let us know if you ever figure out where it came from.

  3. It's a shame we all have to react in this way to something like this. It could be innocent and harmless, but.....
