Bag O Meat
While my husband and I were enjoying a glass of wine, (Arnold Palmer 2005 Napa Vally Cabernet Sauvignon....very nice at about $11.99) on the deck of our good friend's house, our daughter was helping our son locate his lost bag of meat. "He is such a boy" she said as she retold how she watched him open the refrigerator and stare at the contents until he made his decision on what he wanted to snack on. He reached in a pulled out the plate of leftover Marinated Flank Steak that we had for dinner the night before. He began stuffing a zip-loc sandwich bag with the meat. "Is that all you're going to eat?" she asked. "Yep, that's all I want" he replied. She went to the door to let the dog out and he walked off to get his lacrosse stick. When he came back he asked her "Did you see what I did with my bag of meat? I can't find it." She said he was going to go off without it when she stopped him and said "You can't just leave with a lost bag of meat somewhere in the house!" "Why not?" he asked. "Because it'll start to smell and what about flies?!" So they searched for a good 10 minutes trying to locate the missing meat. Turns out he set it on top of the refrigerator. When he found it, he grabbed it, crammed a piece into his mouth, and shuffled out the door with his lacrosse stick in one hand and his bag o meat in the other. Mystery solved.
