Reason number 2838663 I love my husband

Anyone that knows me best knows that I am a Freak - with a capital F - about food and their expiration dates. I cannot bring myself to eat/drink it if it even gets close to the exp. date (like a day or two). Irrational.. I know. But that's me.. can't do anything about it.

Growing up, I've always been terrified that I'm going to drink bad milk. It starts like 5 days before the exp. date. I've always tried to make my mum smell it and tell me if it was bad, only for her to reject me. "Get that out of my face" she'd say and away I'd sulk and go without milk bc I wouldn't take that chance.

Tonight I go to take my meds and think that a nice glass of chocolate milk will take away my chance of nausea. It expires on the 10th.. I pour a glass, bring it to hub, and ask if he thinks it's bad. His reaction????


Not only does he smell it.... he takes a big gulp as well!!! It was still good :)

Now that's love!!! He knows how irrational I am and supports me anyway!

Thank you for your sweet comment girl. I think you are right, we do have a lot in common :) I love it! Nice to relate!
How sweet of your husband. I am pretty irrational about some things myself and hubby handles it well... I don't know how :) ha

Oh my gosh, every day you say something that is more and more like me! I am such a freak about expiration dates! I WILL NOT eat anything remotely close to the day it expires! And leftovers? If they're in my fridge for more than a day, forget about it. I know people who eat leftovers for a week- I refuse!

HA! i'm also a freak when it comes to expiration dates and food. especially cheese, even though people say its totally fine once its in the fridge. (NOT THE CASE says i)

-oh and my dogs are both Bassetthound-Rottweiler mixes :) Rocco is 4 who we adopted in upstate NY and Lexie is 1.5 and was a rescue dog from Puerto Rico

Hey, thanks for the comment, I am excited to have a new blog to add to my daily reading list! I am still unsure of this whole "5 years ahead" thing on Desperate Housewives, but we'll see. SO far so good!

OMG! I am the exact same freakin' way ;) I cannot drink from milk beyond 2 days in our fridge, I dont even care what the expiration date is. I'll drink it on the 3rd day but thats if I am dying for froot loops. Cowboy thinks I'm insane.

I just stumbled on your blog -- and I am cracking up at this post! My husbands family used to own a grocery store chain and so he grew up eating things that were "expired" but still good and he really doesn't understand my fear of it. When milk is a few days before expiring - I'm with you - it goes down the drain!
