Catastrophe!December 31, 2007
So, I told this story to a few people already, but I wanted to write it up because it’s a pretty good one.
Ok, we got back from vacation, and as often happens in that circumstance, the fridge was looking pretty bare. I was really thirsty and searching for something to drink. Then I saw it in the far back… a small carton of egg nog. Score!
I pull out the carton and check the expiration date. Only about three days over. I can live with that. I give it a sniff. Smells fine. Then I take a swig… and gag! It was the most sour rotten tasting thing I have ever experienced!
As I was retching and spitting into the sink and trying to drink some water, I took another look at the carton. Yeah, my carton of “egg nog” was, in fact, buttermilk! I guess I’ll be more careful in the future. 😦
