My wife calls me a human garbage disposal. The five second rule is more like a ten second rule for me if I watch it drop, and even if it’s been a little bit longer, I’m not afraid to sniff and nibble. Because, well, let’s face it: when you’re hungry, you’re hungry.
And I’ve been going through our pantry and eating all of the old food that we need to get rid of. Granola bars that expired last June, popcorn that says “Good before 8/30/06,” and the Sty Stallone Protein Pudding that I think said 2005 on the side of the nuclear proof style can. It tasted a little tinny, but it hit the spot.
Needless to say, I don’t think I can wait too long for this. It was already long enough of a wait to click the “Free Snack” button, then the “Skip” button, just so I could request it that I found myself peeling open a Larabar, throwing away the half with the light spiderweb like mold, and snarfing down the other half.
Iron chef? Maybe not. But I’m working on having an iron stomach. Now, you’ll excuse me. I think our milk just expired and I’m thirsty…
