It's not old, it's vintage.


Todd sliced his finger open pretty deeply on Sunday, while flying his new remote-control plane, and I gave him a tube of antibiotic ointment to put on it when he re-bandages it.

He came downstairs tonight and said, "I think we need a new tube of ointment. Guess how old this one is?"

I said I had no idea.

"If we had a kid that was born when this tube expired, the kid would be in high school now."

!!!!!!

April 1995. How in the world did that tube sneak past my periodic medicine cabinets clean-outs--for fourteen years? If it expired in 1995, that must mean I bought it when we were practically newlyweds. That tube has moved at least five times with us! It's lived in three different states!

Todd wants to know if I'm trying to kill him and/or his finger. He also said, "This is very bloggable."

So I'm blogging about it.

If you come to my house with an ache or pain, and I offer you a Tylenol, ask to see the bottle first.

Bwahahahahahaha. I think I have the sister tube in my drawer. I should go check.

yeah, especially if the tylenol is circa around the time they were finding poison in it. ;) Good thing I didn't take that ibuprofen from you a couple of weeks ago.

Hee! Reminds me of home! I always tell my kids that they have no idea how much expired stuff they really injest around here! :p Hope Todd is fine now!

Holy cow! Thanks for the warning! Next time I come to your house, I'm bringing my own Tylenol and Neosporin. Please tell Todd that I'm very sorry to hear about his poisoned finger. HA!

When my husband and I first got married my MIL cleaned out her pantry and gave us a bunch of stuff so we wouldn't have to spend a fortune stocking up on food. One of the things she gave us was a box of Jello that I swear was from the 40's. I still have it and we still tease her about it. And we always check the dates on the salad dressing at her house.
