One day, while I was working at Hardesty, I was heating up something in the microwave that smelled really good. I took it to my desk and started eating, and Sharon came in. She asked what it was, and I told her, and she said, "Your mom packs you some good lunches."

Never mind that I wasn't living at home. Never mind that I was in my twenties and had known how to make a damn sandwich or open a can of soup since I was seven.

I stared at her, and said, very slowly, "Nooo... I make my own lunch." She seemed really surprised, probably because she woke up at dawn every morning to make her husband's breakfast and lunch.

I don't get it.

Oh my god, somebody's made frozen sandwiches. And there's enough of a market for them that they haven't gone bankrupt yet. God. *shiver*

and they make the sandwiches without crusts too now - they ar PB&J crustlests or something- odd.

my mom sends me frozen Indian food (mostly mutton curry) to last me a month about once a month from MD. It's sad. I would refuse, but it's so yummy and the only meat I can cook is chicken. But I do cook my own meals from time to time *grin*

Oh, yeah, I do buy frozen foods. I can't fault you for that! And there's no way I'd turn down several ready-made meals of yummy mutton curry. But I'm willing to bet that you are capable of spreading something on bread all by yourself! I have faith in you!

I don't know what you guys are talking about. The frozen crustless PB&J sandwiches are awesome. Especially if you eat them frozen.

Ha ha, oops! Sorry for degrading a favorite snack food! But I do believe that you are able to make a sandwich for yourself if the materials are available.

I could have included the conversation that led up to the entry, in which I learned that this woman, who apparently spent a ridiculous amount of money to expand her kitchen into a truly luxury facility, hates cooking to the point that she won't even spread things on bread for herself.
