Sandwiched Deadly Sin

Lawrence Sanders, accountant of deadly sins, wrote that his detective, Edward X. Delaney, had two methods of eating sandwiches (Third Deadly Sin):
...Those he categorised as 'dry' sandwiches, such as roast beef on white or what he termed an interracial sandwich, ham on bagel, were eaten while seated at the kitchen table. The top was spread with the financial section of the previous day's New York Times. 
Wet sandwiches, such as potato salad and pastrami on rye, with hot English mustard, or brisling sardines with tomato and onion slices slathered with mayonnaise, were eaten while standing bent over the sink. Finished, Delaney ran the hot water and flushed the drippings away.
