Do you love sandwiches? Do you cherish them? Do you lie awake at night wondering how to improve ham and cheese? When you eat them, do you find yourself completely and utterly in awe at the greatness before you? Do you cherish every single bite? Do you envision yourself as a kind of sandwich prophet, carrying the teachings of sandwich to the masses, in a sort of primitive, bottom-up, hedonistic, food-worship religion?
