The Fleeting Sublime
Written by Bwog Staff
At approximately 7:05 PM, just five minutes after the scheduled start of Barnard’s annual free sub giveaway, the sandwich was completely gone.
What lay in its wake were scattered martini glasses filled with beaded necklaces and troupes of inordinately disappointed sub-seekers. “I just got here and all the sandwich is gone!” bemoaned one, to no one in particular.
But oh, what a sandwich it must have been. The theme for this year’s event was “Sub and the City.” (Tagline, because of course, “It’s Bigger Then [sic] Big.”)
To be fair, it was quite large! So large, in fact, that Barnard provided a map of all the sandwich’s 709 ft. Favorites like ham and cheese and cheese and tomoato were feet 0 – 125, while Kosher tuna and Halal turkey were resigned to feet 500 – 709.
According to a friend of Bwog who had managed to procure a coveted egg salad segment, the theme music for Sex and the City had been playing on repeat since she had arrived. The song also played for the entire time Bwog was present.
