ToastyOvaries

Scrabble, like poetry, can produce moments of high delight when an unexpected connection suddenly appears. Last week in a game with Son RadRob the following configuration arose on the lower side of the board:

......
TOAST   ...
...VARIES
...

I can't recall the vertical crossing words (shown above as "...") but I definitely remember the instant when I saw that I could link the two horizontal words "TOAST" and "VARIES" with a simple tangential play:

......
TOASTY...
...OVARIES
U...

Sure, it didn't score many points, and I ended up losing the game — but that silly juxtaposition made it all worthwhile!
