You look forward to it all morning.  But first you must go into Wawa and procure your turkey and Swiss hoagie.  You make sure the hot peppers are in a container to the side.  As a matter of honor, you get both regular hot peppers and Jalapeno peppers.  Then you exit the store and set up shop.  Your effects can be placed on top of the trash can.  This will allow you to pepper up you hoagie and start wolfing it down.  You’re not Jay and Silent Bob.  You not here to talk smack on other patrons.  You’re just here to enjoy a hoagie the proper way.


Ah, turkey and Swiss

hot peppers off to the side

indulge gleefully


Of course, this is totally appropriate at a Wawa.  There is an art to it. You must carefully position the bag to keep your food safe.  I mean, it’s not like you’re at a Sheetz.  Now wolfing a hoagie over a trash can at Sheetz would just be barbaric.  We must maintain proper protocol in life.  And yes, I am trash talking convenience stores.  You can take the boy out of Philly but you can’t take Philly out of the boy.


A convenience store

gone by any other name

isn’t a Wawa
