Jeremy’s making my lunch these days. For a long time, Jeremy made only his lunch. The kids liked to buy school lunch and I put together my own lunch at home. But then Vince wanted to bring lunch in high school (to save his $) and now I want to try dearly to not eat any donuts, cake, chocolate, etc left at the nurse’s station at the hospital. That leaves only Edda buying lunch, but now she’s entering high school, maybe it’s also not cool anymore also for her to buy lunch? That would mean that Jeremy would be starting a lunch assembly line in the fall once school starts.
Jeremy is very good at making lunch. He thinks about packing, timing, temperature and how that influences the integrity of the sandwich. For example, yesterday he packed the sliced tomatoes in another container so I could add them to my sandwich right before I ate it so it wouldn’t soggify the bread. When I make lunch for Vince when Jeremy is traveling for work, Vince can tell just by looking at the sandwich that Jeremy is out of town even if I use the exact same ingredients. I tend to not think about how well the sandwich is stacked and I’ll put all the slippery stuff in the middle and then when Vince takes a bite, all the slippery stuff just squirts out all the sides of the sandwich.
