But, this morning is different.
With my third sandwich bite I notice something I haven't noticed before. It's slightly rubbery and lacks flavour. When I take another bite, I realize I can't break through this membrane of sorts. Is it the meat? Has it gone bad? Is it the cheese? Is it old and too tough to bite?
Actually, it's neither. It's a piece of plastic.
In the rush of making my breakfast this morning, I removed a slice of cheese from the package and didn't peel off the plastic that separates the slices (or else they'd all stick to one another). And because I'm practically asleep when I make my breakfast, I have to be reminded of that fact whenever I'm munching on a slice of plastic instead of a slice of cheese for breakfast.
