Ribbon Sindwitchez

Supper that night was kielbasa (a type of Polish sausage), sauerkraut, and rye bread. All I had was the sausage, so a trip to the grocery store was in order.

As I was checking out with a loaf of rye bread and a bag os sauerkraut, the checker asked, “ ‘r’ ya makin’ ribbon sindwitchez?”

“Pardon me?”

“ ‘r’ ya makin’ ribbon sindwitchez?”

Only understanding the word “makin’,” and not understanding the rest of anything else he was saying, I winged it.

“Oh, it’s with Polish sausage tonight. Sort of a tradition with me.”

It was only until I got to the car that I realized he was asking if I was making Rueben sandwiches.
