How was your Chicken Salad Sandwich?



Robert says:

I haven’t even had my coffee yet.

Karen says:

I know what a chicken salad sandwich is but what’s an instant lunch?

Paula says:

I’ve missed this! I haven’t had breakfast, let alone lunch yet but I’ll be back later.

Jackie says:

Cookies for breakfast 🙂

bill says:

chicken salad sucks

C.A. MacConnell says:

Diet Dew and Orbit Gum. I gave up water again.

Sarah says:


For god sake, drink water. that’s a given. take care of yourself.

C.A. MacConnell says:

Um, news flash. Not everything I say on this blog is serious. I can be a sarcastic joker, and I like telling stories. It’s my job.

Marilyn says:

Ha, it’s now lunch time, but I’ve only had coffee and as many ciggies as I like (my house is still a smoking zone — we’ll see how long it takes Big Brother to put the kibosh on that).

I wasn’t hungry until I read this. Chicken salad sounds great. Not so great the ramen noodles — which is what I assume Jim means by chicken flavored lunch.

Harvey says:

Lunch = Big Mac & Fries

Ray says:

Three beers

hard as nails says:

ray, get some beer nuts to go with that beer!

Marilyn says:

I think I decided on shrimp egg roll. Yeah, they’re frozen… I’ll let you know if it sucks.

Jake says:

Ham sandwich left over from yesterday. Yeah, it sucked.

Brenda says:

Kind of a weak post today, but it did inspire to get a chicken salad sandwich for lunch. Tasted good with chips.

Jean says:

What a stupid post.

Dave says:

Lunch: Tuna salad on wheat and an apple 🙂

not to be negative says:

my chicken salad sandwich totally sucked. thanks for asking.

Marilyn says:

Shrimp eggroll? It was ok — neither good nor bad.

But in an aside, (yet totally related) the suckiest posts of all come from folks who never have anything good to say, don’tcha think?

Brian says:

True that, Marilyn. Maybe some “folks” don’t feel their existence unless they’re emphasizing the negative.
PS Homemade lunch – cheap pasta and tomato sauce w/chili seasoned ground beef and parmesan cheese. Better than some, but after all it’s just lunch, not a major thing. Or is it?

Larry Gross says:


The word “sucks” has been used in 4,785 comments. I think I’m kidding but maybe I’m not.

In the months I’ve been doing this thing, the complaining has been the most disappointing. It just must be human nature.

Karen says:

Yes. Complaining sucks


Marilyn says:

Larry, I’ve gone back in search of posts by specific people (I know, I have waaay too much time on my hands!) just to see if selected folks EVER have a positive thing to say here. Nope. There are a very few that have never, ever said one nice or positive thing. Old adages come to mind: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, shut up.” That is one phrase of wisdom my mother taught me that has served me well in this life.

Brian, you stole the thoughts right outta my head! It IS only lunch! And your lunch sounds fine! My lunch was fine! When I was poor (and I have been sporatically thru my life), even ramen noodles are fine!

Paula says:

rice and vegetable stir fry.

Karen @ the hood says:

I’m poor most of the time and I must say I LOVE ramen noodles. It sort of makes being poor all right some times.

Marilyn says:

Karen (@ the hood), I make up care packages for my daughter and always include a multi pack of ramen noodles. She has learned to spice them up by adding dried hot peppers or whatnot. Life is indeed what you make of it.

Matt says:

I gotta admit, I like those ramen noodles. Beef flavored is my favorite.

Jim Stanton says:

Lunch was a bore but dinner was good. Beef stew.

Mac says:

Ham & cheese double decker with a diet dew.
