Some cold afternoon, existential questions like “Nand ell idli?” pops into your mind and you look around for the nearest Tim Horton’s cafe around. Your friend says “You are too hungry and the day is too long for just a tall cup of hot chocolate”. You accept your fate and get dragged along to the nearest Subway Joint. “Half a sub should do”.
“They also serve those who stand and wait”.
Half an hour later, the woman on the counter goes, “Hi there! How are you today?”
“Good! How are you?”
“I’m good too!” “How wouldyu like your sub?”
Me: “I’ll have a 6 inch veggie delight please”
CWoman: “The veggie patties are not done yet. Is it okay if I don’t put one of those?”
Me: “Whatever! no problem”
Friend goes “You guys have such few options. No tuna for you!”
Me “Gah! I hate the smell”
CWoman: “The bread?”
Me: “Italian please”
CWoman: “ohh! sorry we don’t have those! would you like something else?”
Me: “Oh! thats okay! Gimme some wheat bread!”
CWoman: “And the veggies?”
Me “Some Jalapenoes, Onions, Banana Peppers, Tomatoes, and some green pepper”
Friend: “Ewww, Banana Peppers? Take Olives instead”
Me ” Ok, take it out and throw some olives in there! Like I know how the rest taste together anyway!”
CWoman “Let me get your dressing and you are good to go!”
Me “I have no idea, what should I take?”
Friend “I have no idea, but surely lots of mayo!”
Me “mmm, lots of mayo, and honey mustard? and I don’t know, hot sauce”
CWoman raises her eyebrow, “ok!” “Here you go! and that would be 4 99” “Would you like a drink?”
Me: “No thank you!” “Have a nice day!”
CWoman: “You too!”
And before I start, something else turns up and I leave. When I come back, half of it is gone, I have no interest in it anymore.
Hmph! How long do I need to wait to feel full?
