Explosion Sandwich 4


Tramezzini is a type of crust-less bread popular in Italy. It’s used in making yummy sandwiches. You can put almost anything in them. I tried to cut them up in interesting ways so that it would like the sandwich exploded and combine it with a poem I wrote called “Last Forbidden Topic”. I used mayo, sliced chicken breast. For a special twist I added mango chutney. It gave it a kick. A sandwich that is about to explode should be spicy. Don’t you agree?

I supposed this would be great for mother’s day. Make sure to recite the poem before serving the sandwich.

I decided to take a break from video making. Although it is a fun playful activity that encourages creativity, I felt I should put my head down and focus on finishing the novel. Eliminate all distractions. However the universe sometimes has a way of tapping you on the shoulder, asking you to pay attention. Last Friday, the family had dinner at a Chinese restaurant. This was my fortune cookie.

So I simply obeyed. For this Food For Thought video, I used a poem that will be in my new novel. I had the recording of it conveniently sitting on my hard drive. I had used the poem to warm up my voice when recording the story of Frakash. I came across some tramezzini in my local supermarket by accident and boom! here it is. This was probably one of the easiest videos I ever made.

The novel is going well! I finished the first draft two weeks ago and currently am working on the second draft. I am hoping to have it done by the end of this year. Still can’t decide on a name. I come up with a new name every two days. Today it is called “Egging” I like the mischievous connotation the word brings up. I also like how ugly it sounds when you say it. There is a harshness in three g’s in such a small little word that I find appealing. The way the word invites to contort your face into a grimace when you say it. But, who knows I might change my mind again in a few days.
