I eat sandwiches for lunch. We have a fridge at work, so I can buy supplies for a week at the grocery store, and then eat sandwiches all week. Saves money. Today, that plan didn’t work out to well.
In the past I’ve pointed the little bit of engineering to make a plastic grocery bag into a bicycle pannier. Well today I did the same, only I didn’t think it through much and slung the bag too low. About 20 yards from work I went over a speed bump, and well, the best way to describe it is to say that my bike ate my lunch. “FBBTTBTBT!!” came from my bike, and I looked back to see bread shrapnel all over the road. I burst into laughter loud enough to startle the guy blowing leaves on the sidewalk.
Ther two crappy things about this:
1) The obvious: That’s a lot of wasted bread
2) The less obvious: The salvageable slices, what do you do with them?
So for lunch I took the 5 edible pieces, and I made them into 2 and a half grilled cheese sandwiches. A satisfying meal, but not whole-loaf-of-bread satisfying.
What can we learn from this? I don’t know really. But honestly I’ll never look at Violet the same way again.
