Open Faced Club Sand Wedge

I noticed two things today, in my mindless wonder:

1) Playing golf is a whole lot of fun. I know many people are bored with it, don't get it, don't think it's a sport, hate it, etc... but in reality, it's a great way to spend a day outdoors, sometimes with people you really like, and if you're really lucky, get paid for it. I thought of this today, when thinking of my family back at home (more specifically my dad... I know you don't like golf mom). I heard that today they were getting more than 10 inches of snow in Connecticut, freshly coating the ground at the end of a long winter. I sat here, looking out into the streets, knowing that if I wanted to, I could pick up the clubs and go play, while those golfers back home have to wait at least another month. I began to realize that I could, in fact, have done this all winter long and enjoyed the day, the experience, and the atmosphere, without worrying about the snow (if I had my golf clubs with me).

I know what most of you are thinking... 'Why this sudden interest in golf, I still see no reason as to why you brought it up?'

Well, there is a good reason, and the reason is this: I thought of the title of this post before writing it, and as I segway into part 2 of my ramblings, you'll understand what I mean...

2) This evening I was feeling a bit hungry, so I walked into the kitchen to see what we had to snack on. I decided on a sandwich, as it was one of my very few options, and while making it I came upon a moderately strange circumstance...

When I make, say, a turkey sandwich, I'll typically use bread, turkey, cheese, and mustard, at very least. This evening, these were my only options, so I began my preparation. Placing the bread on a paper towel, I began to build my masterpiece; I squeezed some mustard, placed the turkey, and piled the cheese. I was now left with one piece of bread covered in food, and one left completely empty. I thought I was finished, but for extra flavor, I decided to use a second type of mustard for the other side of the food products (I know, I know... I'm a genius).

'Get to the point you babbling fool!'


My point is, when I went to squeeze the second mustard onto the bread, I first *flipped* the bread, as if it had a distinct front and back. After doing this, I realized I *always* do this, for no apparent reason, when adding a second condiment.

You see folks, there is no reason why a flipping of the bread is necessary, but I have a strong assumption that many people fall victim to the unnecessary flippage of bread when making a sandwich. Am I alone in this?

Ah yes... it's not easy being bored.

No, I don't think anyone other than you falls victim to the unnecessary flippage of bread when making a sandwich. Or sandwitch. WHichever.

"Oh and now you look like a moron, because I FIXED the word sandwich!"

Just wanted to preserve that one, Jed.

> Good lord you have a lot of time on your hands.

It's impossible for words to describe reality TV to those who do not know what reality means. Reality. Reality has a face, and you must make a friend of reality. Reality and real life are your friends. If they are not, then they are things to watch on TV.

Free beer to whoever figures it out the reference. ;)

To assert that the earth revolves around the sun is as erroneous as to claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin.
