Right now Chuckles and I have what I like to call 'Bachelor's Fridge'.
Bachelor's Fridge is the result of being low on funds and/or laziness. B.F. usually has about three or four items in it. These three or four items are inedible (or at least unappetizing) on their own. But put them all together, and you can usually have some semblance of a meal.
Contrary to popular belief, Bachelor's Fridge can happen to married couples. So be sure to wear a condom!
Wait. Wrong discussion.
Anyway, I was fixin' to make myself an egg salad sandwich yesterday. Two of the four items in my B.F. were eggs and mayo. Both being unexpired. Oh heavenly day! Like winning the lottery.
I like to add all sorts of other goodies to my egg salad. Curry powder is an eggcellent addition, by the way. Try it.
I found I had a taste for some onion. I thought I had one in the pantry in one of those hanging wire fruit basket thingys...yep, there it was! I thought back to how long ago I bought it, seemed like it was only last week.
The thing about being nearly 30 (only a month and a half to go now O_O), is that time gets all messed up. You think something happened yesterday, and it was really 3 days ago. You remember doing something last week, and it was really 3 months ago. You think you went somewhere just last year and....I don't even want to talk about it anymore!
I reached for the onion. The giant forked branch it was now sporting tried to poke me in the eye.
The Onion mocked me. "WHAT IS THIS? YOU DARE TO WAKE ME FROM MY SLUMBER?? NOW YOUR EGG SALAD SANDWICH WILL PAY!! MUHAHAHA!"
The Onion demanded a sacrifice. My sandwich being onionless was not enough. I had to steal a chicken from my neighbour. It was carnage. There were feathers everywhere. Did you know onions can grow teeth?
The Onion was finally appeased, and I ate my sandwich. I was not appeased. So much less satisfying without onion.
I think I'll go to the grocery store today. Onions are on the list.
