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!
