This Guy Needs Twitter…

I’m sinking to a new low today, dear readers: as I sit in my alternate office, I am eavesdropping on a fellow latte swiller and listening to his cell phone conversation about lunch meats.  And because I believe in truth in the press, I bring you the following observations…

  • He’s had duck once, but really liked it.  (I know, I can’t figure out how that qualifies as a lunch meat, either.  I’ve never seen thinly sliced duck by Hillshire Farms on sale at Harris Teeter.)
  • Roast beef is his absolute favorite as long as it is cooked just right. (I kid you not, he’s rocking back and forth gleefully as he talks about this.)
  • Schlotzky’s is a good place, but they chintz on the meat.  They give you far more meat than bread.  (Funny name.  Serious rip off.)
  • Firehouse Subs is his absolute favorite place for a sandwich.  They have a corned beef and pastrami on rye with cheese.  (I’ll have to give him that.  It is a good sandwich.  But he’s rocking again.)
  • Subway is his least favorite, Quizno’s also chintzes on the meat, Jersey Mike’s is just alright.  (By golly, I might have found a food critic.)

A few things I wonder about:

  • Who is he talking to?  And are they as excited about lunch as he is?
  • Why did I choose to blog about this?  Do you really even care about the lunch meat play by play?
  • And finally, why oh why is this the most entrhalling thing that’s happened to me today?
  • Oh, just one more thing: “chintz” is a new word for me.  I just looked it up online, and I do not think it means what he thinks that it means.

    you blogged about this, but not about the wind flipping green beans over on top of your car a few weeks back….?

  3. Danny says:

    Guilty as charged, Phil. Thanks for bringing up the painful memory. The SnotRocket still hasn’t recovered.

  4. Phil says:

    “SnotRocket”… that’s funny…..

    what you need to do is drive up to Abington, PA which is just outside of Philly. Go to Lee’s Hoagie House and get a Philly Cheesesteak made by locals, not some kid at Jersey Mike’s. And also get a Philadelphia Soft Pretzel. Then blog about that! It’s a great experience. And I’m sure you can expense it in your Blog Budget.

Start the conversation.
