My Sandwich Lady Misses Me

Egg Salad Sandwich, originally uploaded by savemejebus.

I love J&J Sandwich in downtown. I think they make a terrific egg salad sandwich. I try not to order it too often, so it has been a while since I've gotten lunch there. Today, though, I craved an egg salad sandwich. When I got there the nice Korean lady who owns the shop smiled at me and said, "Long time no see." She missed me! Of course the cynical side of me thought that she probably says that to everyone and is trying to guilt me into ordering more often. Still, it made my day.

There's something about the sandwich shops I visit here in downtown. The owner of the appropriately named Sandwich Shop knows my name even though I only order once in a blue moon. There is really something nice about going where the proprietor knows your name.
