Bit of History for Today:

John Montagu, Fourth Earl of Sandwich, a British politician in the eighteenth century, was so fond of gambling that he spent the whole day playing, while devouring slices of bread with a filling between them. Little did he know that his name would become eponymous with that food.

And since the sandwich was created to satisfy the appetites of a gambling man, I hereby declare the Sandwich sinful, worldly, and as such, completely improper for consumption by a Christian.    Boy, this is going to make lunch-packing a bit more complicated…

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

  1. I’m sticking to the wholly Christian wrap. See, Jesus was wrapped up when he was placed in the tomb. Therefore, wraps are definitely the food to choose.

    That does complicate lunchtime.  Perhaps it would be permissable if you use a different bread than he used.  I think it’s safe to say he didn’t use any of the kinds of bread available at the store…

    I am so pleased to know that wraps are excluded.  That’s mostly what we eat here, so you have no idea what a lift that gives me, Tp~  :laugh:
