“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Last night in the refrigerator ...
Friday, August 1, 2008

My wife and I enjoy granola, fresh berries and plain, unsweetened yogurt for breakfast. Because there are two of us we buy one of the bigger, plastic tubs, and it generally will last us for the week. It's always a pleasure opening a container of yogurt and being the first to push a spoon past that placid, smooth surface.

But then ... that next day ... you open it again, and the little depression you created the day before has mysteriously filled with some clear-yellowish liquid ... and you just have to wonder: What the hell is this stuff? And where did it come from? I think I finally have the answer.

Read the container: "Live and active cultures." Okay ... so I'm eating live little organisms, I understand that. And they have to spend all night in that refrigerator, trapped in a plastic container ... with no place to go ...

Are you still with me here? Do I need to tell you about the picture book called "Everyone Poops," that we used to read to our daughter during potty-training?

Of course! Yogurt-culture droppings! What else could it be?

Handy hint: Paper towels absorb it rather quickly. Then again, maybe toilet paper would be more appropriate.
