The Great Sandwich Debate
Yesterday my co-worker pulled out her little half sandwich that she always brings to work and a fellow co-worker happened to look at it and notice that it wasn't folded "correctly". This perplexed me, and the co-worker with the sandwich, as neither of us knew that there was a "correct" way to fold a sandwich. Apparently my "Okie descindant friend" ODF (Don't worry, this is a compliment) felt that the sandwich should be folded side by side. My Italian descendant friend (IDF for short - also a compliment) folded hers from top to bottom or as my ODF said, round to square, and this seemed to disturb my ODF's sense of the logical world and now my IDF's world is stressed. I've never heard someone exclaim that they absolutely could not fold a sandwich a certain way. In fact, in my family, it was all about shoving it in your face and eating it. It's all going to come out the same in the end right? So who gave a rats ass how it was folded. What a new concept to worry about, how your sandwich is folded. What kind of therapy do you need to deal with this?
Who knows. What I want to know is how many of you out there actually have an issue with this. And if so, which way do you fold your sandwich? Do you not fold it? Maybe you cut it and if so how? Tell me your pb&j stories.
I can't wait to hear! Yes, I really am excited to hear back. I do have a life, but I'm into the small things. Tell me your sandwich stories.
