Frame 1 – 4 shows suspense and desire for bread. Hesitation. Hunger. If allowed, frame 3 would have drool. Full-face in #1, eyes looking down, show suspense. An object is barely shown in #2, is it bread? An open mouth in #3, desire. #4, yes it’s bread! The subject is revealed.

Frame 5 – 7 shows continued hesitation while slowly reaching for what appears to be a knife. #5, the hand makes it way into the frame. #6, a clean knife is shown? #7, the hand is farther into the frame, signifying movement towards the knife.

Frame 8 shows the end result. Jammed toast. Or bloody?
