Branching Out

Thursday, May 07, 2009
This post is about a Subway sandwich.

Ever since Subway started their $5 foot-long sandwich promotion, I've been sticking to that available selection out of financial prudence. For a while, they were selling any sandwich that way. Now, only certain sandwiches qualify. When I went in there yesterday, the sandwich I wanted was no longer $5 and the sandwich that I did want for $5 could be considered relatively unhealthy. So I decided to mix things up a bit.

I ended up with an oven-roasted chicken sandwich (which I never get) with pepperjack cheese (which I never get), lettuce, cucumbers (which I never get), pickles, and green peppers (which I never get). It was a sandwich that was designed to be something completely new to me.

The sandwich itself was pretty darn decent and it helped open my eyes to different combinations available to me that I might like. But that's not what this post is really about.

This post is really about trying new things.

I find myself occasionally falling into the trap of complacency and contentment. Sure, I know that if I stick with things I know I'll like, I'll be relatively satisfied. And for things I really, really like, that's okay. But I also need to balance the things I know with the things that are unknown to me. I need to expand my experiences, and to do that, I need to try the occasional sandwich that I've never tried before.

So that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to make a concerted effort to try to see, taste, hear, and feel things I've not experienced before... because I'll never know if I like them or not until I try.
