After work and school on Thursday, the 12th of February, we headed out to dinner. We wanted to honor Abraham Lincoln as the father of liberty and Au Jus. (I know, it is arguable that he is not the father of either, but, we ran with it.) So, we headed down to Sensuous Sandwich, to take the 24 inch challenge. It was a snowy night, but we were dressed to impress. I was really excited about the event, so I was worried it would be busy.
We lined up to get ready for the challenge.
We all ordered different things. Karl and I got the Big Dipper, no veggies, extra Au Jus, to make the sandwich slide down quicker.
This is Alan and Richard Christensen. I don’t remember what Rich got, but I know that Alan got the Sensuous Sandwich, Salami, Italian Sausage, and Pepperoni. He got all the veggies and sauces he wanted.
The place only had one stop watch so we had to wait for all the sandwiches to be done to start. I unwrapped mine, just to have a look. I had them cut it into 3 inch pieces so I could just a a bunch of little sandwiches. It didn’t look too bad.
Alan unwrapped his, and almost had a heart attack…of happiness. I really think this was the best day of his life.
Zach kept some in the bag, starting slow with Au Jus, and getting faster, pushing each bite down with a sip of water.
My tactic was one bite at a time, while Karl just wanted to get it down as quickly as possible.
At approximately 25 mins, I lost the contents of my stomach into this garbage can. SO CLOSE!
So the boys all did it, I was the only one who had failed Abe! But, as one of our party put it, it kind of made the experience complete that one of us couldn’t do it and had to throw up.
Happy Birthday Abe, we love you!
