Tonight I’m going to make Sloppy Joes for dinner. I’m sorry. I know you don’t like them and in the past I’ve used them as leverage to get take out or go out to eat. But this time, its not a bluff. Its the truth. We have buns left over from last night’s brats and I don’t want them to go to waste. I think it will be fun to have long Sloppy Joes, rather than the usual round ones, don’t you? I also think it will be delicious.
To make things a bit more interesting, we can make a theme night of it. While we eat our sloppy sammies, we can watch all the chaos of emotion and charm that is The Bachelorette. It can be like a drinking game, but with Sloppy Joes! Every time Des kisses another guy we’ll take a bite of our sandwiches in honor of the dude being a Sloppy Second.
By now, I’m certain my apology is no longer necessary and you are actually looking forward to spending Sloppy Second Joe Sandwich Night together.
PS: If you read this before you get home, please pick up some pickles. We are out. And get the kind in the refrigerator section, they are so much better.
