I love egg salad. In elementary school my mother would occasionally pack me an egg salad sandwich...those were my favorite days! I remember the distinct odor as I unwrapped the tin foil from the sandwich would sometimes spark a reaction or silly joke from some of the other students at my lunch table. "Fart salad sandwich" is a term that I recall hearing a few times. Hey we were all a little immature at one point of our lives, and perhaps they were a bit jealous as well!
