VIP (very important post)

OK, I need to know two things about you. Two very important things.

1. In the shower, do you primarily stand facing the shower head or facing away from it? Now which way does your spouse face? (If you are single, please vote but ask a member of the opposite sex which way he faces in order to keep the numbers even.)

2. Refrigerated items such as salsa, mayo, dressing, etc., have expiration dates on them. After they have been opened, do you keep them until their exp date? Or do you think that the exp date becomes null and void upon opening and therefore toss the item prior to that date? For example, if last week you bought some salad dressing and the exp date is, say, March 2010...if you open it for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, would you keep it until March 2010?



I have put two "polls" in my sidebar to the left for your voting convenience!

DANG! I voted the wrong one. Andy faces the shower head, I face away from it. But I turn frequently (like a rotisserie chicken). LOL.

We use up our mayo & salad dressing too fast to worry about expiration dates. :) That comes with having 6 people in the fam.

Hmmm... I noticed you didn't have an option for keep the item past its expiration date and then one day open it and fall over gagging when you see and smell what has become of the contents? Um, that would be us. Check.

How fun. I love this kind of random stuff. Can't wait to see where you're going with this... I am assuming you're going somewhere with this... ;)

Lisa said...

hehehe....that was fun to find! Hey, no category for those of us who actually (discreetly) check expiration dates on other folks' salad dressings, etc...LOL ( only at family members houses and only one time...really)

I can't wait to find out why you're asking us such interesting questions. I'm usually still in my zombie state while showering so I had to really think about which way I stand.

Hey chica - did you look at B & H Photo at all for the lens?

Stefanie said...

Stefanie said...

You are too funny! I'm like Rebeccca. I'm a turner. Michael faces. Throw it out (but things rarely last long enough). xo

hilarious. i voted. : )

Jenna said...

Is there a choice for "never looks at the exp. date ever regardless of circumstance"? That's me. Although, Scot throws EVERYTHING away promptly ON it's expiration date- spoiled or not.

Jenna said...

Well, this has been very revealing. I voted for myself, and then asked Scot. Turns out, he also rotates so frequently (like a rotisserie)- so frequently he can't choose. I never knew that about him- eye opening!!!
