No Bologna About That!

My twin sister, Shepherd, makes fun of me because I eat Bologna sandwiches! I am 43 years old and cannot live without this American Classic – in fact neither can one of the American Presidents!

I actually love the taste of Oscar Mayer’s Beef Bologna and I am not afraid to admit it. To some it sounds yucky, but I love it! It MUST be Oscar Mayer Beef Bologna and made on white Wonder Bread with Kraft Singles, chopped Iceberg Lettuce, Hellman’s Mayonaise and French’s Mustard.

It’s like a recipe and you can’t have it any other way, especially with the condiments – don’t mess with the mayo or mustard! It just wouldn’t be that sandwich I crave so much.

I used to crave, actually dream, about Bologna sandwiches in London whilst living there for 8 years. The Brits don’t recognise this special concoction of (we hope only) Beef meat parts as edible meat. But think about all of the time I suffered! Can you imagine being separated from your first love for that long?!!

And growing up in the 1970’s Bologna sandwiches were considered a healthy meal. Well, it still is considering which family you grow up with, right? I remember there was this advertising campaign for Oscar Mayer Bologna. The screen would come on, a little boy with crazy curly unkempt hair, a dangling fishing pole in one hand and a huge Bologna sandwich in the other.

And here he is…

    are you by chance from TX orginally? I was a friend of Shepherd’s years ago in DC but we lost touch. I rembered she had a twin sister, so wondering if I got the right person. I was hoping to reconnect after all of these years. Oh, and I too love bologna sandwices (fried with mayo).. and I was mistaken for the kid in the commercial when I was little- seriously
