So Disgusting!

T, one of my BFFs, came to visit me today with her two little ones. I made waffles for lunch, since her little guy was disappointed the last time they visited because I made spaghetti instead of my trademark waffles. My maple syrup is in a 2L jug and I wanted to put some into a smaller container that would make it less cumbersome to pour - when pouring from the 2L jug you tend to get far more syrup than you bargained for! I decided that my cream container (from an ancient Tupperware cream & sugar set) would be ideal for holding and pouring the syrup. But when I took it out of the cupboard, it was heavy. I wondered if perhaps I had put sugar in it by mistake at some point. I gave it a little shake and something sloshed inside of it. (Do you see where I'm going with this?) Very carefully I cracked the top open and was hit with the smell of rotten milk. I dumped it down the drain and a huge clump of cheese? yogurt? no idea! sat in the drain. EW! The last time I recall using the cream container was at BB's birthday party almost a month ago.

Oh no. Did you know that there are some places in the world where people pay big money for the chance to gag down disgusting things like your clump of treasure?
I'm serious. I've read about these places and it blows my mind.
Read this and gag.

Oh wow! That's awful. I sat here laughing and gagging at the same time. Had I been thinking, I would have saved it and put it on Kijiji. :)

LOL...that's awful? Did you wash the container and keep it? I'm a wuss I would have thrown that puppy right outside in the garbage can. :)

Believe it or not, I washed the container... Well, I set it in the sink and let hot water run in it for about ten minutes before I was willing to touch it. Normally I would have turfed the thing as well, but I knew it would be forever before I picked up a new set... and THEN what would I put cream in when the ex-inlaws visit? ;o)
When I put it away this morning I stuck my nose in it and it still stinks. I can hear my mother's voice telling me to set it out in the sun for the day, but I picture it blowing away.
