How Elderly is Your Ham?
Now, there were some very fine and useful items in the box, to be sure. I love the chicken tortilla soup, and I’m sure I’ll figure out something to do with a gallon of chili (no beans,) but there was also a container of Mexican style cream that expired two-weeks ago, a bag of salami that expired at the end of November, and some orange juice that still had three good days.
Tonight while I was slogging through email, and not really paying attention, the Kid was riffling through the contents of the deli drawer in the fridge. After a couple of moments he turned to me and asked, “How elderly is this ham?” It struck me so funny, that even half an hour later I’m still chuckling at the thought.
