Ok so this sounds ridiculous at first, but hear me out.

I had went through the fridge and thrown out all the lunch meat. All of it. My mom then purchased some more from a one-stop-shop around here called Heritages. Their lunch meat comes in Ziploc bags.

Two days go by and we still have the 3 things she had purchased: ham, turkey, swiss cheese. My mom tells me she took some of the turkey and when she was done with it, she put it in this section of the fridge we don't normally put lunch meat, so she wanted me to know because if I was looking for it, it wouldn't be in the "meat" section.

I go to check, there's surely lunch meat in that spot she told me, but now, it's suddenly an unopened package from Shoprite - a store we never really go to - that is dated "sell by April 08". It naturally is not in a Ziploc bag as Shoprite uses the generic plastic bags with the stickers to seal them. So the sticker is sealed, the meat is expired, and it wasn't there before as I had thrown everything out. Also, the other turkey, the new stuff that she had taken some of, is gone. No trace of it at all. The Ziploc bag is not in the trash can, so nobody ate it and threw it out.

Now, how do you explain how that other turkey gets there, when nobody came over and the only person in the house to leave the house today was my mom who spent the entire day at work and not only wouldn't have had the time to go to Shoprite, nor would she have purchased turkey as we already had it, but she CERTAINLY wouldn't have purchased EXPIRED lunch meat, right?

Lately, a lot of weird things like this have been happening to me. I've been seeing 12:34 on my clocks once or both times a day for over a month now and it's not a conscious effort to look. In fact, sometimes I take conscious efforts to make sure I DON'T look at it, and it still happens.

Something's up.



This site is dead and has been for a long while, for multiple reasons—not the least of which is that it's of a different era (roughly 2007). You can no longer safely play around with discussing gray areas with a humorous twist. People don't read between the lines. If they want to be offended, they'll twist what you said to mean whatever they want, and you're guilty no matter what. Or, on the flip-side, instead of being too sensitive, they'll think you're somehow defending their awfully bigoted or shameful viewpoints, even if you aren't. Both extreme sides of everything are so black/white dumb that it's an impossible minefield to navigate. If anything on here doesn't age well, sorry; times have changed, and so do people, for better or worse. Get over it. (It being "everything") There is always more important shit out there going on. Out on limbs.
