what is the best thing about a sandwich, and also the worst thing about a sandwich?

i’ll give you a few minutes to think about.

ok, i know you are impatient, so i’ll just tell you.  the best and worst thing about a sandwich is that it exists between two (or more) pieces of bread.  if the contents of the sandwich are soft and easily smashed, the sandwich becomes squishy (as is often the case with sandwiches containing avocado).  if the contents are rough or crispy, they can rip or pierce the bread, and then you basically just end up eating bits and pieces of your sandwich off the plate with your bare hands.

if only there were a way to circumvent these problems…

and as if god knew that you were having issues with your sliding, squishy sandwich, the skies parted and down from the heavens descended a perfect, pure, white puff of cloud.  and on the cloud was a grinder.
