Oh, Nooooo!

I just noticed that Joe was drinking a bright red concoction that I don't remember buying. I asked him what it was, and he said that it was Kool Aid. That he bought in college 12 years ago. Or was it 15?

I am horrified. He started to tell me that we may have some Spam that's around 6 years old. My reply was "Thank you. I haven't had anything to blog about lately."

I'm sure the shelf life of both is decades. Don't worry. It is funny though.

i agree with mk99- those things don't really expire. though i throw food out after so long anyway just to be sure. 6 year-old spam, huh? not so sure about that- it's not like its wine... ;o)

Oh boy. I'm going to have to go and purge the pantry, just to make myself feel better after reading about the 15 yr old kool aid.

I was trying to re-live the Kool-Aid commercial in bed last night with my (Dutch) husband, who had absolutely no idea what I was doing and thought I'd finally flipped out.

Spam is evil. It's made from demons who were too awful even for hell.

I should probably throw out everything in my house. I just heard on the news last night that you can only freeze bacon for 3 months. Now, that's just wasteful.

Barbara - I guess it would sound really weird to Niek to hear about a huge pitcher of Kool Aid busting through walls and stuff. That gives me a new perspective on our culture.

Hogwash! In the words of my MIL, "I've been eating bacon that's been frozen for seven years*, and it hasn't killed me yet!"

*Feel free to fill in whatever disgusting thing you like here..."not washing my hands...even after the potty", "licking the raw chicken", "cutting the mold off my ground beef and using it", "defrosting everything on the counter for 48 hrs at room temperature", I could go on for awhile.

C. - (If that is your real name) please tell me you're joking. I thought cleanliness was important to her.

This has all reminded me of the time JP's coworker or boss brought in apple crisp or something. AFTER he ate it she said "yeah, those apples have been in my freezer for 10 years or so."

I didn't even know you could freeze apples.

I wonder how you could tell the difference between new spam and 6 year old spam.....less jelly?

The pop culture mecca of the 70's FOR ME was the big pitcher of Kool Aid crashing thru stuff. And I took it to heart in a softer, gentler way...I opened Kool Aid stands whenever I could. Once our street was getting repaved and the hot sweaty (too young to get turned on!) young, shirtless guys kept buying me out and my mom had to make a few grocery store runs. I raked in 30 bucks @ 10 cents a cup. Those were the days....

Hey barbara,
You should try explaining what a Hawaiian Punch is!

Uhmmm Cory, if we ever meet, let's meet at a restaurant okay?

Why is it that guys are totally fine with consuming shit that is questionable? Stephen does this too - he will eat chicken wings that he's had in the fridge for a week. One of these days I'm going to be dragging him to the emergency room.
