I LIVED IT: I Ate a Grilled Cheese Sandwich With No Tomato Soup

I’ve been through a lot in my life. In fact, I’ve lived through so many hardships that I thought that nothing could faze me, but that was until I had to eat a grilled cheese sandwich without any tomato soup.


I never thought something like this would ever happen to me, until it did.


Yesterday, at lunch time, I had an insatiable craving for a grilled cheese, and I decided that nothing would stand in my way to get it. I put so much love and effort into making that sandwich, but half way through I realized that I didn’t have any tomato soup to eat it with. I was totally blindsided. Nothing had ever prepared me for something as tragic, and honestly evil, as this, and I had no idea what to do.


What did I do to deserve this?


I was faced with an impossible dilemma; I could either eat this dry cheese sandwich with no acidity to balance it out, or I could eat something else instead. But how could I have done that when I had a beautiful grilled cheese sitting right in front of me? It’s a choice that no one should ever have to make, and one that I wouldn’t even wish on my worst enemy.


I ate the grilled cheese sandwich with no tomato soup, and it pains me to say that this experience will haunt me for the rest of my life.



Now when I go grocery shopping, I always buy tomato soup, even if I don’t plan on having a grilled cheese anytime soon. I can never be too careful. My roommates complain because I’ve filled all the cabinets up with hundreds of cans of tomato soup, but if they’d been through what I had just survived, they would understand.


Why would God ever let this happen to me?


Today I believe that no one knows true sadness, regret, or despair until they have a grilled cheese with no tomato soup. It’s something that should never happen, but sometimes, in rare cases, it does. But I can assure you that I will never be a victim in this awful situation again.


However, I’m afraid that since I’ve spent all of my money on tomato soup, I’m eventually going to have to eat the tomato soup without a grilled cheese. Fortunately, when it gets to that point, I told my roommates to just kill me instead.
