Sandwiches - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
George would describe his sandwiches as stomach filler, as if they were no more than edible concrete. He chewed them robotically and swallowed as if it were cardboard he were eating. But then his mom had given him the same filling in the same bread every day since kindergarten.
Instead of returning with the usual egg salad sandwiches he returned with a foot long sub so stuffed with fillings that they tumbled out as he bit. Despite the mess he was the very picture of bliss right down to the last piece of lettuce. Then he scooped the dropped pieces off his paper napkin and devoured those too.
The sandwich looked like something that had died. It was limp. The bread had that dried dehydrated texture. The filling seemed to be peanut butter and cheese. I gagged.
It was like some kind of Scooby-doo sandwich. The filling was layers of cheese and ham with lettuce and tomato. Oozing from the sides was copious amounts of mayonnaise. It looked like you'd need a flip top head to eat it, or else you'd need to dislocate your jaw like a snake.
