Actual conversation, tonight:
Dan: omg, you're throwing those out??! Why??
Me: these prunes are THREE YEARS OLD. They're expired.
Dan: But! They're prunes. They never go bad!
Me: I am not eating three year old prunes.
Dan: But the container's never been opened!
Me: If we have not WANTED to eat them for the past 3 years. what makes you think we are going to want to eat them in the next 3 weeks?*
Me: hmph. I thought so. (happy strut to trash can)
And so it was for the prunes that were never meant to be.
*in 3 weeks we are moving temporarily to Arizona; currently getting house ready for tenant, more on that later!
