Oh, holy freaking Moses: I didn't have cereal yesterday for breakfast. And I've been poking on the computer for some hours this morning 'til it's now this afternoon. Just went to have something to eat. That's strange: no milk in the fridge. Didn't I buy some Wednesday? Oh. There it is. In the cupboard, where I put it with the 2-liter bottles of root beer I also bought that day....

It was swelling in the plastic and had to be squeezed out into the toilet. Eww. I'm so embarrassed! (But not so much so that it didn't make for a funny story, even at my expense....)

What a horrible price to pay for absent-mindedness! That would've made me sick. I just can't stand soured milk.

When something like this happens, I feel the "absent-minded academic" stereotype creeping up on me: I think this ties the record, equaling the time I found a stack of my high school students' homework in the refrigerator....

Funny. My wife will sometimes leave her coffee on her dresser in the morning. Sometimes it stays there until the next day. Sometimes she confuses the old cup of coffee for the new cup of coffee. Priceless.

My only question is whether she thinks its priceless, or whether this is an opinion you can only have on the safety of the internet. :-)

She doesn't have time to think about it as she rushes to the sink. Most of the time she volunteers the information which tells me I can have the opinion in saecula.

Yeah...THAT was pretty gross.

Indeed. It was hissing as I started to open it, which I had to do because it was clearly under so much pressure inside the top was about to burst anyway: better on my terms than not....

Eek! Have you tried this? They chill before serving, I hope? Or maybe better yet, turn it into thick hot chocolate?

I hope you had a stuffy nose because that must have smelled terrible.

The place did indeed require some airing out, despite being January....

I just hurt myself laughing.

:-) My apologies!
