Bánh Mì Bounty

"What a great picture!" said my assistant, H., pointing to the screensaver. We were sitting in a coworker's office, discussing build out plans. At least they were. I was furtively looking out the window, hoping to locate the police car that had distracted me with its siren.

"Thanks," said our coworker. "I took it in Ireland last year."

"Snag's a photographer," said H.

I heard my name and refocused.

"What?" I said.

"You were taking pictures in your office yesterday afternoon," she continued. "Remember?"

"No," I said. "Liar."

Our coworker considered us with increased interest. "What were you photographing?" he asked.

"Nothing," I said.

"His sandwich," said H.

"You took a picture of a sandwich?" asked our coworker.

"To show to his wife," H. said.

"Why did you want your wife to see it?" he asked me.

"This is a stupid conversation," I replied.

"He wanted her to know how delicious it was," H. added.

"Be quiet," I suggested.

"What did your wife say?" asked our coworker.

"What would your wife say?" H. inquired.

"That it's weird to photograph a sandwich," said our coworker.

"Bingo," said H.

"It was delicious," I said.

If you are weird, you have company. If business brings you to DC, you have to get out to Falls Church and hit the Eden Center. Particularly Song Que. Awesome.

Life is like a sandwich,son. You'll never no what's in it and if you try to get photographic evidence people will think you are strange

And they don't like it if you put it on the scanner instead. There's no pleasing some people.

I just sent you a pic of the one I had to travel to civilization to get.

Saw Anthony Bourdain's show do a piece on a restaurant in your area, Picolo.

You been there? Looks amazing...

I haven't been to Piccolo. Can't justify the prices based on what I've heard are very small portions. Ate at a couple of the chef's previous restaurants, though. The boy can cook.

What I saw on TV looked awesome, I was so hungry after watching the segment. Prices on The menu don't seem too scary compared to DC.
