The horror...the horror...

It looks good, doesn't it? I was so proud when I took it out of the oven; nicely risen, interesting cracking along the surface, beautiful color—what could be wrong? I found out the next morning when I took my first chewy bite. I had *forgotten to add the salt.* For me taking a bite of a baked good that's missing salt is like trying to move a limb that has fallen asleep: the shock of the dead where one expected warm life. I'm starting over tonight. Let us never speak of this loaf again.
