Earlier today, I received a comment on my last post suggesting that it might be easier to earn immortality by having my own sandwich at a Jewish deli rather than creating a drink named a Neilochka. Not a bad idea. After all, half of you didn’t even know that a lemonade/iced tea was called an Arnold Palmer. Clearly, my readers are lushes who only know the names of drinks with vodka or tequila inside.
I love the sandwich idea. It totally fits my “branding.” I love sandwiches. I’m Jewish. And there is something very sexy about a woman eating MY sandwich.
But I’m all about community. In the spirit of the Great Interview Experiment, I believe that Everyone is a Somebody. That’s why, today I am opening Neilochka’s Virtual Kosher Deli. Think of it as a Subway extreme. The options are unlimited. You create your own sandwich — the meat, cheese, or vegetables, the condiments, and the type of bread — and then name it after yourself.
My sandwich, the Neilochka, is fairly simple, which reflects my personality. Corned beef, sauerkraut, spicy wasabi mustard, on rye bread. No cheese or vegetables. Enjoy it for lunch.
What is your sandwich? Write it in the comments.
