How the Cinammon Sugar Pretzel Was Born

     A long, long, long time ago in a tiny village in northern France, there was a small bakery.  The bakery was built with stone and wood, handcrafted like a work of art.  And late one evening in the dead of winter, one of the helpers was working the night shift.  He was frying doughnuts, baking cookies, baking cakes, and working the dough to make bread.

    Girard, the night shift man, suddenly felt very tired and his head fell right into the dough!  And without Girard to supervise the baking, the ingredients suddenly came to life.  The dough separated and became a nation of little dough men.  One of the dough men, Jacque, started arguing with another dough man, Pierre.  And before you knew it, the dough men were wrestling with each other.  And the spices leaped out of the spice rack.  The cinammon bottle lost its top, and sprinkled cinammon on the dough men.  The cannister of sugar looked on, threw off its top, and sprinkled sugar on the dough men.  Before you could blink, the dough men were wrapped aound each other, covered in cinammon and sugar and frying in the pan. 

     Ten minutes later, out came the first cinammon sugar pretzel on earth.  Girard suddenly awoke, looked around, and saw the pretzel.  It looked like someone had created that pretzel.  But no one was in sight.  The dough and the ingredients and the spices were all scattered about.  "I must have been dreaming, thought Girard."  And to this day, no one in that tiny village has ever found out who created the first cinammon sugar pretzel.
