It’s been over a year since I posted. I really need to work on being a little more consistent. Maybe it’s because I’ve cut back on my coffee consumption. Most likely it’s because I have a full time job that has mandatory overtime and I was ignorant enough to think that I had enough time to go back to school full time as well.

Speaking of Stupid …
SOMEBODY made chicken alfredo and left it in my fridge in a cottage cheese container while I was at work last night. I don’t know who did this, but thank you. I know it wasn’t Mr. He was at the football game all day yesterday. I suspect it was one of his moms but his efforts to conceal it as cottage cheese have been thwarted.
First Mistake: You didn’t eat it for breakfast before I got out of bed.
Correction: Always wrap up all the loose ends. Always.
Second Mistake: It’s in a Cottage Cheese container. Now, this might work in another household as camouflage, but not here. When was the last time anyone in this house ate cottage cheese?
Correction: In order to eat the Chicken Alfredo for a snack when you came home, you should have insisted that the Mother use a leftover container similar to one that we already own. Don’t stand out. Learn to blend in, sir.
Third Mistake: It was in the FRONT of the fridge, screaming it’s presence in front of the freshly washed grapes, de-capped strawberries, left over homemade chicken soup, my favorite olives and artichoke hearts swimming in olive oil. My first thought was, “WTF? Cottage Cheese?” Imagine the glory when I opened the container and saw lovely penne pasta and chicken breast swimming in a creamy white sauce.
Correction: Even if you couldn’t avoid to conspicuous container, shoving it behind everything else in the fridge might have saved it for you later. Getting lost in a crowd sometimes works even if you aren’t conspicuous.
Mike – you need to work on your espionage techniques.
I’m watching you.
