This article is not meant to be funny, but it did make me laugh out loud.    or maybe bleat is the more apt word.    The writer suggests that we buy a set of similar containers to get the same effect.    Also says she lost 40 pounds after organizing her refrigerator in this way.    She checks the rainbow's need before shopping.

I had to go back and hunt this one down (a WSJ digital subscription is one of my luxuries, and also a valid work expense).

 

I can only conclude that (a) these people are more detail-oriented than I am, or

(b) they don't have a life.

 

When we moved into the new house, my one resolution regarding the fridge was to be ruthless about throwing stuff away before it got old enough to vote. So far, I've done moderately well at that. I have neither the time nor the patience to color-code what's left.

 

Of course, Marie Kondo lost me when she contended my socks screamed in agony when I rolled them together and turned one top down over the pair, making a ball, too. I obviously have very inhibited socks. No shrieks emanate from my dresser drawer.

Have you ever seen a movie called "The Accidental Tourist," with William Hurt as the titular (uptight) travel writer, and Geena Davis as the dog-grooming free spirit he falls for?

In one scene she's helping his equally tight-wound siblings (Kethleen Turner and David Odgen Stiers) put away the groceries. They're...alphabetized. She helplessly brandishes a box of pasta and asks, "Does this go under P for Pasta, or M for Macaroni?"

They gaze at her incredulously for a few (interminable, uncomfortable) seconds before Turner says curtly, "E. For elbow macaroni."

I confess my refrigerator has canned sardines approaching age for Medicare.  OK, I exaggerate.  You can't get Medicare at 40.

The French consider aged canned sardines the finest.    You can buy sardines with the name of the boat that caught them and the date they were caught, then keep them.   Kind of like wine.

 Wow, does that ever bring back memories! My mother-in-law was, without any doubt, the world's worst cook. When her refrigerator got full she would pull everything out, dump it in a pot, cover it with water and boil it for about an hour. That was soup for 3 or 4 days depending on how many leftovers she had. My father-in-law ate at our house whenever he could.

 If it didn't look like it had enough flavor, she would add half a bottle of ketchup.

Yes, but the defence isn't very funny.

 

Sorry.  I didn't bother to read it.  Pumpkin spice is not any part of my life, except if I were to make a pumpkin pie.  Our dogs have canned pumpkin every now and then but without spice of course.

It reminds me a little bit of a sign I saw in a butcher shop here in Costa Rica. Bistek de cerdo. Translation, pork beef steak. And trying to explain the absurdity of it to the butcher was like trying to explain it to the animal that it came from.
