Surely I’m not the only one who has done this.
I was putting together a salad today. This salad calls for either feta or blue cheese crumbles. Looking through the contents of the refrigerator I found a container, already opened, of feta crumbles.
I picked it up, thought “I’m not sure this is any good anymore,” and put it back in the refrigerator.
Yes, that’s right, I put it back, as though …. what? As though there’s a magical monkey in my refrigerator that has the power to make food good again? Why, if I wasn’t sure whether the cheese was any good anymore, would I put it back in the refrigerator? It’s not going to get less bad. The refrigerator, like Cher, can’t turn back time.
Luckily, for once I stopped myself mid-action and made this logical connection. I then looked at the “use by” date and it isn’t until Saturday, so I used it up without concern.
However, I know for sure I’ve done that before. Have you?
Also, speaking of Cher, it’s a good thing she doesn’t live in a refrigerator because she would need more clothes, for sure.
Please Cher, put on some clothes.
