The Evil Sandwich Container!

Oh thank you God for the National Anthem! We were almost late for the play. If I'd rate it from a range of 1-10, ten being the highest, a fair 9.5. Suprisingly Agot Isidro and Jet Pangan were also a crowd favorite (other than Lea Salonga). Jet had this full masculine voice, I was really impressed. I knew that Jet Pangan was in a rock band before as lead vocalist, which never caught my attention... until last night.

A funny thing happened. During the 15 min break we decided to have a quick snack at the GJ stand since we didn't have dinner yet. The bell rang as a signal that the play was about to resume. I didn't get the chance to finish my drink as well as the sandwich so I threw my drink and kept the sandwich. The play was already starting when we found our seats, I wasn’t able to clap the rest of the play! Why??? The sandwich container kept on opening inside my bag (which was actually quite small, needless to say I forced the sandwich to fit in my bag). I was really ashamed since my seat was precisely in front and middle where the actors can see us and see me struggling (but I really tried my best to do it discreetly) to fit the sandwich container in my small bag and plastic sound made it even more difficult. I surrendered after a 20 min battle with evil container! I placed the sandwich container on my lap and decided to cover it with my bag (I couldn’t place it underneath my seat or at the floor since I’ve always practiced good etiquette and the venue was not an ordinary movie house).

The play was already finished the actors did their usual exit (bowing and bowing) and as I was about to clap (and actually thinking of a standing ovation) I heard plastic screeching…. I forgot about the sandwich… It was again opening by its self no matter how I close it, it opens by it self. Lea was in front of me and glanced at me for a quick second … since everyone was clapping and standing giving their praises while I was acting as if I didn’t like the plays out come and I was too busy with my sandwich. Shame...
