Wheat Grinder

Prompt: Describe a sound from your childhood. What was it? When did you hear it? What does it bring to mind?

Response: The high shrill of the small, flour dusty box filled the house. It drowned out every other noise as it consumed the crackling, popping wheat kernels. Like a higher-pitched vacuum cleaner perched on the white kitchen counter - it sent clouds of the smell of wheat through the room in swirling flecks of flour. The harsh, high sound meant mom was baking bread - soft as air with a chewy, flaky crust. Though the sound was to be despised, it could only mean one wonderful thing - mom was baking.
