The cranky vibe I pick up from Rex when I report the sandwiches are not cut in half makes it clear this is something I should have noted in the minimart. Yes, the sandwich can be torn, but the unevenness of the tear will detract from the thoughtfulness of the gift. We ride awhile in silence.

The cloud lifts quickly, as always with Rex and me. After bisecting the sandwich, I ask him if he is ready for his half. He is. He is so hungry, he tells me, he could eat the ass off a goat.
