    over......
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Over.

    Order a Man's Lunch while you're at it.

    Better make it a Diet Coke, Chunk.

    My check was, once again, precisely $7.00. That is the first time I can remember that two lunches in a row cost the same amount.

    Trootfisher and Hextall, why don't you two confer and decide whether I should be ordering a "man's lunch" or trying to eat something that will not immediately add a half-pound to may already adequate paunch. I just don't know what to do when I get conflicting advice from such sage individuals.

    I think TF's suggestion of a man's lunch is a sausage sandwich. And by sausage sandwich, he means a rooster. And by rooster I mean to imply you are fat.

    I'm willing to bet your Chicken Salad sandwich had more fat and calories than my 6" pastrami sandwich (dry, with lettuce and onion only) did today.

    I wasn't even talking about nutrition so much as the character of your lunch choice.

    By character I mean "hen."

    Yea, the Market Fresh Chicken Salad at Arbys has like 860 calories. That was very surprising to me. One of the highest of all the sandwiches!

    That is why I get the Reuben.
