Dinner plans were carried in an over-stuffed sack this morning.
“I brought an extra sandwich,” said Jimmy D. as he waited for the 2 train. “I won’t have time to get anything after work so I’ll eat on the way to the game.
“I’m going with peanut butter,” he continued. “That’s the same thing I had the night Aaron Boone hit the extra-inning homer to win the pennant. I remember still tasting it in the back of my throat when I was cheering that ball over the wall.”
Jimmy D. laughed to himself.
“It’s funny how you remember things like that,” he said. “I guess peanut butter will always taste like a pennant to me.”
“Do the Yankees always win when you eat a peanut butter sandwich?” someone asked.
“I’m sure they don’t because I eat them all the time,” Jimmy D. answered. “But I don’t remember those games.”
