Everyday is a learning experience. I learnt today that a four-slice sandwich is unwieldy, especially, if you have stuffed it with a quartered omelette, tomatoes and sheets of lettuce. The mayonnaise leaking across the smooth lettuce leaves, as you may have already guessed, makes it slippery even.
So if you have to have a sandwich of four slices, rather have two sandwiches of two slices each. There is double advantage in that. One, the sandwich is manageable and two, you have the satisfaction of having two sandwiches instead of one.
And I really have no idea how to end this post, which obviously reminds me of Paul Simon’s song, Train in the Distance:
What is the point of this story
What information pertains
The thought that life could be better
Is woven indelibly
Into our hearts
And our brains
But we never listen to that thought. Be it a sandwich or anything else. By choice, we are a species that learn only after the mayonnaise has leaked down our fingers and dripped to the floor.
