Expired People

Pin It Now! There are two types of people in the world. Those that eat expired food and drink and those that don't. I was raised by an expired eatin' kind of guy. I married a "throw it out if it comes within 7 days of the expiration date" kind of guy. Personally, I am not really into the whole moldy, smelly, expired variety.

We arrived at my parents' house yesterday for Easter enjoyment. Shiloh got some "Simply Grapefruit" juice out of the fridge knowing full well that it was likely to be expired. He checked the date it was "Best By" well over a month ago. He knew better to throw it out or he would hear a voice, "Did somebody throw out my grapefruit juice? That was perfectly good juice."

Today we teased my Dad (as we always do) about his expired self. He looked at the date on his juice and said, "This is just the 'best by' date. It's fine."

I love my Dad. He eats gross, moldy things. He thinks organic food is a joke and a total rip off. He swears that high fructose corn syrup is a vegetable. He'll probably live to be 110 years old.

Then there's my Mom. She is not into expired junk. She just likes to hide little kids' Easter baskets in... how do you say... unexpected locations?

Pin It Now!
