Packing For Armageddon

weather: cloudy
outside: 15°C
mood: giggly
Have I explained the Food Department at our house yet? The family philosophy seems to be to stock up for Armageddon, then forget all about it.

Then once in a while, go on an archeological expedition, millenia into the future and find stuff upon excavation. This is generally the commonly accepted practice of finding a dead Egyptian Pharaoh's tomb, for example.

We routinely get a snack this way.

This was even when MIL Woman was here. His family has always been like that.

It had been so hot here last week that Husband Guy had a minor case of heat exhaustion last weekend. Sunday night, he decided he wanted some juice. No problem, there should be some frozen Minute Maid concentrated juices in one of the freezers.

We plow through the freezer for the frozen MM and crack them open to find the most unfriendly-looking, unfood-like growths in the place of what was supposed to be frozen juice. It looked like Chernobyl and smelled worse. You would never have guessed that it could go bad, nevermind turn that nasty.

Four similar cans in the garbage later, Husband Guy, his Brother Dude and I drove to Safeway to get some new stuff. At Safeway, the first thing Husband Guy says is "okay, where's the frozen juice?" Brother-In-Law Dude and I both go, "um, in the freezer section?" We started making fun of Husband Guy for the stupid question:

Me:  Did I already say 'I Do'?
B-Dude:  Why, yes, I believe you did.
Me:  Was it very loud? Did you really hear me?
B-Dude:  Sorry, man. The whole church heard you.
Me:  I didn't say it very loud. Do you think it still counts?
B-Dude:  Well, it _was_ kinda quiet...

My refrigerator is a biohazard too.

Last week a threw out an entire container because I could not bare to open it and clean it. I just didn't want to know.

I know what you mean! Cleaning out the fridge was NEVER a job I liked. One time I remember opening a container and finding mould ropes. I was at a complete loss until I realized it *used* to be spaghetti noodles. Eccchhhhhh!

Now, after raising 5 kids, my parents have the house (and the fridge) to themselves... And it's STILL packed full. How can two seniors *possibly* need that much food around??? It boggles the mind. ;)

ok the juice must have been there for a REALLY long time because things in freezer (and juice of all things!) take a really long time to grow mouldy!!

My husband brings up that his signature is such a scrawl he could get away with saying it wasn't him! :)
