Margie: Edna, I'm getting hungry. I think I'd like a nice sandwich today. Remember the ones Mama used to make?
Maybe our readers will tell us what their favorite sandwich is. My stars, I'm not sure I can pick just one. Can you?
Edna: I truly don't think I can pick just one, either. I love sandwiches because they offer such a variety of different breads, fillings, and toppings you can use to make whatever you want.
I had a friend who used to make little finger sandwiches for her bridge parties. She made the most wonderful tuna salad sandwiches on little baguette slices. Oh, those were to die for!
Margie: That sounds lovely. I always enjoyed Mama inviting her church ladies over because she'd make those cute pineapple sandwiches with mayonnaise. I still eat those in the summer.
I love a bacon and cheese sandwich but no lettuce or tomato on it. Then there's my peanut butter, banana, and mayonnaise sandwich. Which one shall I have today?
Edna: Whatever you choose, eat it far from me please. Watching you eat a sandwich is like watching a cow chew its cud. Turns my stomach every gol-durn time.
Margie: Excuse me, Queen Demon, but at least my teeth don't click when I chew.
Edna: Woman, just go eat your sandwiches and leave me in peace!
Dear Readers: Please ignore Edna. She hasn't had her pills today. Do let us know what your favorite sandwich is though. Maybe we'll try it.
