Bringing New Meaning To The Term Soup Kitchen
November 3, 2005
My husband has a full size refrigerator/freezer at his office. In the year he has been working at this office a few people have occasionally made use of the refrigerator for storing their lunches. The freezer, however, has always been completely empty.
A couple of months ago, Rob decided that he would bring some food in to put in the freezer, so that when those days arise where he can’t go out for lunch, because he is too busy, doesn’t have the inclination, or whatever the case may be, he can go to the freezer take out a hot pocket or something similar and microwave it. And there, instant lunch! He brought a couple of boxes and stacked them neatly in the back corner of the freezer. The rest of the freezer remained empty and unused.
That is until yesterday.
Rob went into the freezer to get his last hot pocket and found this:
The entire freezer is filled with containers of soup.
He stood there looking at it in disbelief, wondering if it was some sort of practical joke, when one of the secretaries, or whatever the more politically correct word is now, came into the room.
“Do you know what is up with all this soup?” he asked.
“Oh yes, it’s mine.” she answered, “I just love soup.”
And here we come to reason #432 of why I could never have a job where I had to work with people. I would have been forced to say something like, “What the hell do you mean you love soup? Don’t you have freezer space at your own home? Are you anticipating a soup shortage and stocking up for the long cold winter?”
And then I would have taken a picture of it and posted it on my blog. I like soup too, just in moderation.
I have been giggling about it all day. Yes, it doesn’t take much to excite me as evidenced by yesterdays post. I forced Rob to go with his camera phone and take a picture of it for me. I just had to see the former cool whip and butter containers pressed into service as tupperware.
I was not disappointed.
