Making Sandwiches in Hopes of a Proposal
If a man said to get in the kitchen and make him a sandwich, any self-respecting woman would probably drop him like a sack of potatoes. But New York Post Page Six reporter Stephanie Smith has apparently taken the old adage “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” quite literally. Smith revealed that she is behind the blog 300 Sandwiches. It details how she prepares a gourmet sandwich every day in return for the promise of an engagement ring, because her clock is ticking and she wants to get married and have kids and live a perfect life in her perfect Brooklyn apartment, OK? She has more than 120 sandwiches to go. Apparently, her computer-programmer boyfriend, who is in love with sandwiches—err, with Stephanie—tells her every morning, “You’ve been up for 15 minutes, and you haven’t made me a sandwich?” Smith seems to be oblivious to the underlying sexism involved in all of this, as seen on her Twitter: “What's the conflict? Do you not know if you like sandwiches or not?” Cue eye roll.
