Egg Salad Sandwich
-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-

Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ), Day 10.
Around 1500, everyone starts to whine about being hungry. At first, I was like, “Hungry? But you haven’t done anything all day.” Anyway, they wanna eat, probably due more to boredom than hunger.
I usually make them simple sandwiches.
The egg salad sandwich is not a simple sandwich. First, it takes a lot of eggs – 8 eggs for 4 sandwiches. Also, it takes a lot of effort to boil the eggs, then peel them, then mince them, then season them. Finally, it takes a lot of time, as warm egg salad is kind icky – boiled eggs are warm – thus requiring refrigeration for a few hours before serving, so everything needs to be prepared in the morning to be ready by mid-afternoon.
IZ: “This is gross.” I was tempted to smash the sandwich in his ungrateful face.
