Life is a challenge, doncha just find?
One has to be a sleuth, even when shopping for the house! A good example was yesterday
"Oh my goodness, when did you buy this?" Himself just said, as I was eating my steel cut oats this morning.
He was eating those wee individual cottage cheese things and looking at the expiration date.
"I don't know", I said--maybe yesterday with my groceries--
(You see, I don't always tell him the truth about most purchases)
"But it says on the container, it expired August 14th:" he replied.
"Well, I must've bought it last week then, I can't remember", I replied.
It's so hard eh, trying to keep up with all these dates---and if I forget my glasses, I might come home with some kind of food that we never really wanted--
There are expiration dates on soups----of course on bread, milk (which I do always check)-eggs, canned goods, bottled water, and even prepackaged cleaning goods--
If I were to read everything I throw into my cart, I might never get home---
-It would be like that song about riding that subway--"Did she ever return"---
And now they are saying that everything is still good past that expiration date--but-(that big "butt")--is it really ---and for how long, ---and do I take a chance, knowing that I was warned already that it might be the cause of my "expiration" , to venture past that recommended date?
I kinda work on the theory, "You Pay Yer Money and you take yer chances"--
It's sorta like living, "On a wing and a Prayer"--and it is Sunday!
At least I told himself that--poor guy----
Of course he threw the cottage cheese out!
Lord love a Duck eh?
--a lot to think about--
