@msolga,
olga, Deciding on which part of the bunny to munch down on first might fall in the ritual category. How can you eat the head without getting the ears first? For me the decision was always between the ears and the tail. I think if you HAVE to eat the ears first, it's a ritual. If it's just an annual decision, I don't see a ritual connection.

@Setanta,
You eat around the outside of the sandwich before diving into the middle, set? Hmmmmm. I must cogitate on that one. I always think that the crusty part is what's holding the sandwich together. An optical illusion. Basically nothing is holding the sandwich together except gravity and what's smooshed together between the two slices of bread.

Is this about something like which part of the chocolate easter bunny one habitually eats first?

As a child I alway started with the ears ... because I figured that would cause the least pain. I never felt good about eating the bunny's face.




I should bloody well hope so too!

Oh yeah apples!

Go down one column (I know it's not a column, I just mean, hold the core where the stem is on one side and the flower part on the other. Do this in the center. Then down one "row" (going from stem end to flower end). Next row, etc. until all or almost all of the skin is removed.

It is very wet this way but this is how I do it.

I do not cut my sammichs in half. It's not a ritual, just seems a waste of time.

However, once when I was small, I made a sandwich and started eating it. My older sister got mad and made me cut it in half. She said "You look like a truck driver when you eat it that way!"

I look like a truck driver? WTF?

I guess that was her ritual.

@jespah,
jes, So you peel the apple with your mouth before you take a bite. I salute you for this particular degree of weirdness.

chai, You don't wanna cut a samwich, don't cut it. For some strange reason, uncut samwiches look "uncivilized" to me. Why do I care about looking civilized? Dunno.

@Roberta,
I'll admit uncut sammichs look undone to me, but I don't cut them every single time if they are on the small side. I make more and more open faced sandwiches (notice the more formal spelling), and with those I pretty much enjoy the balancing act it takes to eat them.

Re sandwhiches.....the way it is cut is everything....it must be cut corner to corner not along the sides. My mom never understood.

@ossobuco,
I think I'm a fanatic, osso. I cut open-faced sandwiches too. This may be related to something my mother said when I was a child. Something about uncut sandwiches. Do I remember what she said? No. But it obviously stuck with me.

@hawkeye10,
Hawkeye, That works best with white bread, shapewise. I will occasionally make a diagonal cut on a rye bread sandwich, if I'm so inclined.

Mothers sometimes don't get it.

My mother warned me never to eat a hamburger away from home. "God only knows what they put in those things." I got over this. She said the same thing about sausage. I'm still working on this.

My brain tells me that the triangle half is bigger than the rectangle half, even though I know that it is not. Part of it also is that my mom would never let me have the hot lunch at school, partly it was financial but partly she though she had to do her duty instead of subcontracting it out. I was about the only kid who did not have triangle cut sandwiches, and it got comments along the lines that I must be a country bumkin. In a way I was, as my mom was forever the daughter of a poor Michigan scratch farmer. The day I talked her into letting me make my own lunches was a big day, I never did get hot lunches though till I got to High School, when after years of pleading she finally caved.

@hawkeye10,
Different places. Different perspectives. All my friends and I carried our lunches to school. We felt sorry for the poor folks who had to get one of the hot lunches in school. I'm not sure why. Maybe we thought they were poor. I can tell you that the smell was not inviting.

In a way we are back to that, as the swill served in most schools now is inedible, what between cost cutting and the healthy food nazies. But my kids for years have refused to take a lunch either, they either dont eat or they leave campus. Until last year they could get pizza every day at the school store via DECA, but the Nazies put an end to that.

@hawkeye10,
Leave campus?! Were weren't allowed out of the school! Well, maybe if there was a fire.

Just remembering Chuckles (the candy) I did eat them in order. Started with the yellow--ended with the red. Black next to last. Hey, I could go for a Chuckle.

She obviously told you that you look like a truck driver eating one.

We had a truck driver in the family. His sandwich was always cut in half.
