So apparently there was absolutely no need for me to feel guilty about not being sick, as it turns out I spent the majority of the day doubled over with stomach pain!
Here are some too-late pieces of advice that I would have found helpful…
- Just because something doesn’t have an expiry date, doesn’t mean it won’t go bad.
- If you opened something over a week ago and haven’t used it all up already, the bit you haven’t used has probably gone bad.
- Smelling said item won’t always tell you whether it’s gone bad.
- Eating said item two days in a row will result in a very upset stomach.
Yep. I definitely had a jar of PC Guacamole mix from a couple weeks ago which made very yummy guacamole… the first time I used it. It then sat in the fridge (– the fridge, people! Isn’t that what fridges are for– to keep things fresh??) for about a week, after which time I thought I’d make some more. Yesterday I ate some, and had a mildly upset stomach which I blamed on this. Then today I decided to eat more, and… yeah. I figured out the rest pretty quickly.
Moral of the story: the next time I decide to play hooky, I won’t be eating any guacamole.
Happy Friday the 13th!
