Words I Realized: Straisel

Straisel [strey-zuh’l], n – sandwich droppings

Do I try to just stuff it back in? I don’t wanna lose all those there pickles, but I also don’t wanna get mayo on my hands. I wonder if the lettuces off in the distance were shrapnel from one particular avalanche of droppings. What to do, what to do… I mean, if a meatball fell out of my meatball hero, I’d obviously shove it back in, but I can probably spare two pickle slices and a glob of off-white mayonnaise.

It was so quiet at the deli that only the intermittent sounds of falling straisel could be heard.

Wait, straisel?? I don’t get it… Can you explain?
