Every time I get a sandwich at the deli in the food court at work, after wrapping it, they stick those little party toothpicks through it and I think: silly, what do they need those for? They're stylish enough if you want to strike a pose with one in your teeth, sure, but otherwise?
After getting a breakfast sandwich this morning, I started back toward the office and tripped! This sent my sandwich sliding several feet ahead. As I sheepishly scooped it up, I was delighted to see it was intact.
Now I get it.
