WHY I EAT SANDWICHESBy Jesse VandenBergh
Sandwiches are the type of food you shy away from as a kid, but migrate towards when you’re a little older, other than peanut butter and jelly, which I think we can all agree, is a gateway sandwich. Many kids start with your standard chicken nuggets and french fries, and stay in that safe zone until their palette is ready to expand. I will never forget when my palette expanded. As I was in that stage where I thought about sandwiches a lot, but hadn’t yet mustered (no pun intended) the courage to actually consume a sandwich, the movie “Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island” came out. In the beginning, Scooby and Shaggy share a deliciously drawn, towering sandwich, although Scooby diverts Shaggy’s attention, and devours both halves. The sandwich is only on screen for about five seconds, but it was that five seconds that solidified my commitment to sandwich eating. A fraction of a minute from a straight to VHS movie in 1998 is the reason I eat sandwiches today.
AKA, I’m an idiot and forgot to post a Sandwich Night thing Beef Jerky wrote up!
