Today was a sandwich kind of day. I came home craving PB&J, so I made PB&J. Then I wanted grilled cheese for dinner, so I made grilled cheese. Tuna sandwich sure sounded good, but I do have some self control... So I limited myself to two kinds of sandwiches (especially since I probably used 2/3 of a loaf of bread already).
I think I may have some OCD tendencies or something. Or maybe I just cling to my past sometimes. But there's something about sandwiches.... Let me explain.
Grilled cheese sandwiches need to be eaten in strips. Four strips. And you eat the outside (crust) ones first. Then you eat the crust off the inside ones. Then you can eat the excessively cheesy inside strips; the good stuff.
I don't know why that is. It just is. That's how it's been for, well, ever. Four strips, eaten in that order. Grilled cheese is just weird not in strips.
PB&J on the other hand... PB&J requires one slice of bread. It is meant to be a folded over sandwich. Half jam, half peanut butter. Fold it over. Eat the crust, then the gooey inside.
There have been times I've eaten a grilled cheese not in strips, but I honestly can't remember a time my PB&J wasn't a fold-over sandwich. I can't explain why, but that just sounds... Well, kind of gross to be honest. I know it's absolutely no different, but PB&J must be a fold-over sandwich! There is no logical reason to this. It just is.
I did have to step out of my comfort zone with PB&J today, but not to the point of it being a non-fold-over. I just didn't use raspberry jam, which is all I've ever used before on my PB&J.
Other than that... Well, tuna seems like it should be either whole or in triangles, but I'm not really strict about that one.
So I guess I'm OCD... About sandwiches. There is no logical explanation here. It just is. I'm weird about my grilled cheese, and my PB&J. Especially my PB&J. It really does sound gross to me to eat it as a whole sandwich. It's stupid, I recognize that, but it really does.
