Not too harsh! It's perfect! Hahahaha!!!!
eww... was anything unnatural growing?
Oh, yeah, there was definitely mold. Some of the stuff actually looked okay, but I wasn't taking any chances.
I can't imagine the eggs... *quivers*
Well, the eggs actually looked normal, but some of the other stuff was pretty foul.
Not too harsh at all - I thought it was hilarious. I think I've got you beat on one thing, though - a few months ago I threw out a jar of mustard that was bought when Daniel was about twelve weeks old. As in, twelve weeks in utero. Shows you how often we actually used it!
Heheh, I think you win. Yeah, it's probably a good rule of thumb that if a food is older than a walking member of the household, then it's too old.
Mustard? That old?
Maybe you were just waiting for someone to say "pardon me, but might you have some green poupon?"
What had happened was that the jar had gotten shoved into a corner and forgotten; at some point I must have thought we didn't have any and got a new jar (though it's true we do go through it slowly). I was pretty surprised to find the old jar. For what it's worth, the colour looked normal on the outside, but I didn't dare to open it lest a malevolent genie or something equally nasty be released.
I was going to go for the obvious Beatles reference, but then decided to go for something else...like
"A bottle of bad mustard...in the back of your refrigerator...with a candlestick..."
You should have throw all that stuff in the blender, mixed it up, and then poured it on offending roommate's beds. That would have been harsh.
Oh, man. One of my friends' friends had a roommate who poured chili powder in her bed, then pretended the cat did it.
That kind of thing might not work in my case. Especially since we don't have a cat.
Well, I am sure you have seen the pictures of the cat with "the invisible bike" and "the invisible sandwich"...
Why not an invisible cat?

This is one of the reasons that I will never again have roomates. Of course, part of that is because many of the things in my fridge are equally aged... but you know - still good for you, right?

Never again will I live with someone that isn't related to me, married to me or about to be married to me.
Roommates are a constant source of irritation and this is a prime example.
However, mold is fun to study!
Actually, I get along fine with my roommates. They were laughing about the note right along with me.
Damn. All your food is so . . . natural.
Then again, I guess it's unlikely that a can of Red Bull is going to go bad. Carry on.
If it ferments, it becomes "Sparks Caffeinated Malt Liquor"--the beverage that turns everyone into me, and turns me into something else entirely.
