Proper Amounts

The proper amount of butter on toast is just enough to spread thinly over the bread such that you hear that scraping sound as the knife travels over the bread.

The proper amount of cream cheese on a bagel is just enough to spread over the bagel without hearing that sound. It seems most bagel places either "butter" my cream cheese over my bagel and it's not enough or thickly pile it on such that it spills out over the sides, through the hole and onto my black shirt and pants.

Where is Goldilocks, really?
