I just had a strange and sudden craving for a sloppy joe. I have no idea why or where it came from. The more I think about it the more I want it. I want one of those saucy sloppy joes that were served to me in elementary school. They seemed so large back then. They were always piping hot and a meal shared with friends is the best meal of all. Tonight I will eat alone. I will have some minestrone that I made and it is quite good. I will probably have a light salad and a white bean burger with cremini mushroom gravy as sides. I will have a nice glass of wine with it, but I will be eating alone.
Is it actually that I desire the company of others? Do I miss the simple days when life was fun and easy? Am I pining for a sloppy joe because I miss the days when things made sense or is a sandwich just a sandwich?

    Food is the language of love, dude. Doesn't matter if it's a wonderful white bean burger doused in cremini mushroom sauce, or a sloppy joe with a napkin tucked into the neckline of your t-shirt. Sharing a meal with another person is communal and wonderful. Eating alone SUCKS, and I know cause I've been eating alone for a while. While I am happy to be eating alone, rather than with someone who turns my stomach or makes me shake in fear.... it still is impressive when you consider that humans have a healthier life when they're sharing 5-10 meals a week with a loved-one. Sharing food is beautiful... why else would potlucks be so worth going? It's not the gathering of people... its the gathering of recipes and love-boiled food. MMMMMMMMM I am actually wanting a sloppy joe right now too.... and a sammich is never just a sammich
