You Know, Samwich
"It looks like a samwich," Lola said to me.
"A sandwich?" I asked, emphasizing the sand part.
"No, a SAMwich!, she said. I wasn't sure what she meant. The mushroom in question did not resemble a sandwich at all. At least, not in my eyes. When I looked at her non-plussed, she put on her thinking face. You could tell she was pondering ways to explain to me what she meant.
"You know, a samwich, that goes under the bologna."
Aha! She did mean a sandwich. We were just disagreeing about the correct pronunciation.
"Oh, a samwich," I said. Lola nodded happily, pleased I finally got it.
I still don't see it though...
