Even though I miss Husband #2, there are some things about him I’m happy to be without and voicing these items keeps me from sinking too deeply into despair.
I tossed out the frozen bean and cheese burrito that’s been in the freezer for close to a year.
OK, this may not sound like a big deal so I’m going to paint the whole picture.
Husband #2 is good at buying the cheapest, worst, unhealthiest, gross food and leaving it in the pantry for months. We had a can of generic creamed corn in the cabinet for 10 years. I’m pretty sure it was in Husband #2’s possession longer than 10 years, but I can only vouch for its existence since we joined our households. This can of creamed corn made the 1000 mile trip from Husband #2’s old house into our joint home.
Just like the creamed corn ruled the cupboard, the burrito was going to become the war lord of the freezer. Every time I opened the freezer door, it would conveniently fall forward so that the door would not shut properly. I looked at the label just to see how the nutrition info stacked up. Nine grams of fat, 600 mg of sodium. I’m not a health freak but even those numbers scare me for something that was the size of a fruit roll-up.
So two minutes after Husband #2 pulled out of the driveway with his trailer full of belongings in tow, I opened the freezer and tossed that baby out. Huzzah!
It was either that or chase him down and ram him with my car.
