Eating Subway with Shel Silverstein
Previously . . .
Hey, Shel – I know you’re busy brooding right now, but I have an idea that might perk you up.
Want to get Subway for lunch?
I knew that would get you excited. So what do you want?
I know – it can be a tough decision.
Black Forest Ham?
What? You’re not helping me out much here, Shel.
I tell you what – why don’t you just go with me? That way you can see all your options. It’s pretty cold, though. You’ll probably want to wear a fur coat with a floppy collar.
*25 MINUTES LATER*
Okay, a rotisserie chicken wrap for me and a meatball sub for you. Hey, your sub is pretty messy. Why don’t we eat on the deck?
Let’s dig in.
*NOM NOM NOM NOM*
Why are you looking at me like that?
Oh, you’re trying to say grace. Sorry.
