Friends, today I lost someone very special.
I forgot that it was the regular 'cleansing of the staff fridge' day and anything
that wasn't labelled was going to go to the giant cafeteria in the sky.
Oh, Lunch, I miss you.
A Tribute to My Lunch. Lost in The Great Fridge Cleaning of 2007.
Rest in peace, Lunch.
I remember like it was yesterday...
packing you up after dinner. Leftovers to take to work.
You were the kind of lunch that gets you through the morning. Not the hastily thrown-together sandwich with wilty lettuce and expired cold cuts. Nay!
You were the kind of lunch that makes people grin and say,
"Guess what I have for lunch today?!"
Lunch..we were so young, back then. And I'll admit, a little naive. But I never thought we'd part this way. Not today. Not before I got to say goodbye.
I'll always remember the last time I saw you. So peaceful in your litte tupperware container, beside the yogurt and that baggie of trail mix. Wiling away the morning hours in air conditioned comfort.
It was my fault, of course. I should have remembered the warning. I should have seen it coming. Perhaps I was so all-consumed with the prospect of our reunion that everything else was below the radar.
Either way, Lunch, you're gone. And even though Amber got me a sangweech from Subway, I want you to know, I cried a little as I ate it.
So, Lunch...ashes to ashes, crumbs to crumbs...
I make you this promise:
I will never treat another lunch the way I treated you. Unless it's a crap sandwich with wilty lettuce and expired cold cuts and I can persuade Amber to buy me another sangweech from Subway.
But aside from that , I promise.
