poke chop samwich

Kinda recently someone posted up about eating disorders within the CH crowd. The first and proper response was “seek professional advice.” The rest of the thread trailed off into sympathetic comments regarding anorexia / bulimia, and, of course, overeating. I suffer from none of these ailments, but I suspect that all readers of this board have their own food issues – an aversion to bad food – an obsession with the best – with a host of personal peccadilloes thrown in.

“Hi! My name is Bob and I am a food obsessive.”

I think the phrase “pork chop sandwich” rolls trippingly off the tongue. In my own manufactured brogue, I told my daughter, “I love you more than a poke chop samwich.” She loves this phrase and praise and asks for repeat performances. Little does she know I’ve been scarfing down PCSs every work day for a week. Driving south out of the Loop when I should be headed north, I double park at Jim’s Original and take my steaming-fragrant-brown-bag to my car to stop-and-go in expressway traffic ecstasy.

I don’t feel too guilty. It’s a cheap vice that I know will soon wane in intensity and I can go back to normal.

What’s that? They got the best polish sausage too?
