This article from The Guardian struck a chord with me. I’m a sandwich lover. In fact, I’m more a sandwich addict. I’m not sure I can remember the last time I went a day without bread. Or ham. Or cheese. Or all three together, under one roof.
As such, I can relate to pretty much every word of this. I do eat the same sandwich every day. The staple diet. I work from home a fair bit and that makes the habit even more prevalent. A number of reasons for this repetition are postulated here, but for me it’s simple: I’m busy, and it’s easier to make something I know I like, and don’t have to think about. What a terribly sad, 21st Century technology answer. But the repetitive sandwich is testament to our work/life balance today. And it makes proper meals taste all the more sweet.
