You can empty the fridge, wash every shelf off perfectly and somehow, the next day, one of the shelves has something sticky on it. A big blob of it smeared halfway across the shelf.

It's just one of those things in life that never goes away.

I'm sure the monster is in the dryer. It chews up the socks and leaves them in the lint trap. I know my clothes can't possibly have that much lint.

I think it roams from washer to dryer to hunt for its favorite socks to eat. I've frustrated it by buying identical socks by the dozen. Now its biting holes in my underwear. I mean, how does one wear a hole in underwear? It's not like I scoot around on the floor in them. I think its the sock monster chewing on them.

Eat many beans? Maybe you need some blow out patches?

I don't eat beans very often. They make me feel like I'm going to blow up. I love them, but its not worth feeling that way all night. Plus it scares the cat.

Hmm. Just read back this far, but these three items go so darned fast in my house that refrigeration isn't needed. Not fair, I don't buy minced garlic, so it stays in a basket with onions.

Reminds me of the time I made Indian food for some friends who'd never had the experience. The color enhancing ingredient for the tandoori chicken in every recipe I saw (and in every restaurant I'd been to, the chicken was pretty vivid red) was, you guessed it, food coloring. My new-to-Indian friends were absolutely astonished to discover something the next day. Don't want to get too scatological, but we got a lot of jokes and laughs from the experience.

Well, I love fresh garlic and use it as often as I can, but time can be a factor. It's nice to have a back-up.
