Random silliness  
There are people who say you can't *make* anybody anything. They can *make* me a sandwich.

:-)

Sillyhead. I think the expression is you can't make anyone *feel* anything.

To which the response should be: I can make you feel cold! I'll stick your hand in the freezer!

Usually the expression is more like "Nobody can *make* you happy. Nobody can *make* you anything." And I stand by my response: "you can *make* me a sandwich" :-)

Fair enough. You are usually better at remembering things. :)

Do you want a sandwich? I can totally make you a sandwich. :)
Noahangelbob on April 10th, 2008 09:24 pm (UTC)
Wouldn't help. I'm off at work.

I'll see you tonight, but by then we'll be at an Indian restaurant, which is a fairly silly place to have you give me a sandwich :-)
Krissyrightkindofme on April 10th, 2008 09:27 pm (UTC)
I'm totally useless. I can't even make you a sandwich.

*deep dramatic sigh*
Noahangelbob on April 10th, 2008 09:30 pm (UTC)
Or at least, it wouldn't help for you to right now. After we get home and are stuffed with Indian food, I guess you could make me a sandwich. I'd probably eat it slowly, though.

Maybe an ice cream sandwich :-)

I think that making a sandwich requires superuser privileges.
Noahangelbob on April 10th, 2008 09:35 pm (UTC)
You just say that 'cause you like quoting XKCD :-)
griffjongriffjon on April 11th, 2008 01:43 am (UTC)
Guilty.
Krissyrightkindofme on April 10th, 2008 10:47 pm (UTC)
Now I want an ice cream sandwich.
Noahangelbob on April 10th, 2008 10:56 pm (UTC)
You've got time to get one quick... Or we could grab ice cream sandwiches after dinner. I don't remember offhand what kind you like, though, so I don't know where would have them.
Krissyrightkindofme on April 10th, 2008 11:07 pm (UTC)
You are the best husband *ever*.
Anselmribbin on April 10th, 2008 09:37 pm (UTC)
You could make him one to take to work tomorrow.
Krissyrightkindofme on April 10th, 2008 09:42 pm (UTC)
They are hard to transport on the motorcycle...
Anselmribbin on April 10th, 2008 09:44 pm (UTC)
Ah, yes, that would be an issue.

You know, a while back I ran across a nifty bit in a documentary or something about some guys who would makes stews by lashing small pots to the undersides of their cycle exhausts. By the time they got to where they were going, it was cooked!

You can lead a husband to sandwich, but you can't make him eat.
VanderVeckenxthread on April 10th, 2008 11:00 pm (UTC)
<poof> You're a sandwich.

Hmm, drat, didn't work.
Krissyrightkindofme on April 11th, 2008 12:38 am (UTC)
Well, I could take big bites out of him and declare him sandwich tasting. Would that qualify? I'll even put his arm between pieces of bread if it'll help.

I'm very helpful.
Noahangelbob on April 11th, 2008 12:40 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that won't help. I declare it unilaterally :-)
VanderVeckenxthread on April 12th, 2008 10:25 pm (UTC)
Maybe if you add some lettuce and mustard...

I'm very helpful

I've noticed that.

No, I can't. I don't have a meat-slicer big enough to fit you.
rehana on April 11th, 2008 03:23 am (UTC)
It doesn't have to be a tidy sandwich. Just use a knife.
rbusrbus on April 12th, 2008 12:23 am (UTC)

i suspect most of you would be HAM sammiches!

as opposed to me: a dried up chicken sammich.

oh, wait, no!

i'm a 3-day-old crunchy peanut butter sammich.
Noahangelbob on April 12th, 2008 12:36 am (UTC)
I read this and thought, "huh. A ham-and-peanut-butter sandwich might be pretty good."

I've never tried.
rbusrbus on April 12th, 2008 12:55 am (UTC)
grilled ham and pnb, maybe...
