There's a right way and a wrong way to make a peanut butter sandwich

I just got a call at work from Emily. She was in tears as she told me, "Mommy put peanut butter on both sides of my sandwich, and she says I have to eat it."

I explained that once you put the two pieces of bread together, the peanut butter will get on both sides, whether you spread it that way or not.

She didn't find any comfort in that reasoning, however. Emily said, still crying, "She's lost her mind. I didn't ask for it this way; she just did it."
