I noticed that everyone around here is very strong on opening bags of snack foods but not so big on finishing them. As a result, we always have an abundance of Pirate’s Booty, vege chips, pretzels, etc. that are open.
So you can imagine my confusion when the other day, Rick opens up a fresh bag of Goldfish crackers while making Dylan’s lunch.
“Why did you open up the Goldfish when we have all these other snacks that need to be eaten before they go stale?” I inquire.
“I thought Dylan might like some Goldfish.”
I crinkle my forehead.
“But she loves all this other stuff to. And it’s already open.”
“I don’t know. I guess I didn’t see them.”
“Really? You didn’t see all these bags?” I do a Vanna White gesture to showcase all the bags.
“I guess not.”
The crazy part? I know he’s telling the truth. He really doesn’t see them.
“But how is that possible? Just help me understand.”
“I really don’t know.”
So in an effort to save money, I’ve come up with an intricate plan to combat snack waste in my home.
Potential flaw in plan: Dylan and Summer don’t know how to read and if Rick doesn’t notice all those snack bags, what will make him notice the sign?
I relocate the sign…
That should do it.
Now someone teach Dylan and Summer how to read.
