THE ORIGIN OF THE WORD “SANDWICH”
The word sandwich comes from the English language and today it’s used in many other languages. The Earl of Sandwich was an English who lived in the 18th century. He was very fond of playing cards and was considered the greatest player of his time. He often played cards all day and all night. Sometimes, he played for twenty-four hours without stopping. He did not leave the card-table even to eat. Servants brought food to him. One day, they brought him some meat and some bread. Since he did not want to stop playing while he ate, he put the meat between two of the pieces of bread in order to continue playing.
“He played twenty-four hours without stopping” means:
He played all day and all night. d) He played until midnight.
He played during the day. e) He played part of the day.
He never played.
