which wich

We have a sandwich shop here where I live called Which Wich. Actually, there's a few around the city so I know they're part of a chain. Maybe you have them where you live. Anyways, I really like the sandwiches from Which Wich and I go frequently.

Instead of ordering your sandwich from a person, at Which Wich you mark a brown paper sack with the provided red sharpie markers to customize your sandwich. You take it to the cashier and once the sandwich is made, it is returned to you in the same brown paper sack - perfectly made to your specifications.

But what's really fun about Which Wich is the art gallery on the side wall. The shop has put up three or four wires running the length of the wall with clips all along the wires. Customers draw or leave messages on the back side of the brown bags and clip them up for display. They're all on the brown bags and done with the red pens. There are some really talented artists and it's always fun to browse what has been posted.

A few weeks ago, when Dani and I shared an evening meal together before she headed back to school, I created my second piece of artwork to be hung on the wall. The first piece was a Merry Christmas wish and I don't know what happened to it. I don't know if the shopkeepers take down some of the art after a certain period of time, or if other customers do - but I didn't see it again.

But this second piece was still there a couple of days ago when I stopped in for a yummy sandwich. Now, it's not really art. It's a maze. It's the one that looks like someone's large intestines. But if you look closely, you'll see it's a maze. I may not be an artist, but I can draw one complicated maze, as you can see. I actually thought maybe a kid would take it down and solve it. Maybe someone still will.

That's amazing. I was going for a brain, you know just from from the picture. But, that's really neat!

Oh my gosh, that's just too cool!

I bet you're a darn good artist, too.

First, cute name - which wich - love it!

Second, that is amazing. I cannot even draw a simple box maze for my kids...I get them online. Have you ever thought of creating them and sharing them on a website. What a cool gift!!

Your first art exhibit! Congratulations!

I LOVE Which Wich. Or Wich Which. Or Which Witch? I'm too lazy to go check out which it is. Oh, dear.

We just got one near us, and went there when it had just opened. I'll have to go back and see if they do the art work thing too. The sandwiches are awesome, IMHO.

I am completely amazed by the maze. You're good!

I'd be doodling smiley faces and other Pre-K like pictures.

Wow - after all these years of being your mother, I didn't know you could draw a maze like the one shown. But I shouldn't have been surprised at all. After all, I've seen your scrapbooks and other creations.

I've always liked your quote of the day.
