January 5, 2010
I don’t know if anyone else thinks like this, but when I clean out my fridge I get wistful checking the expiry dates of food. I hold a tub of yoghurt and read, ‘2009-12-14’, and think “God I wish I had all those days back, I could get so much more done.” The reverse happens as well, like when I buy a carton of cream and it’s stamped ‘2010-02-25’. I look forward to that date. Some of the winter will be over and a few of my obligations, like driving on an icy 401 to attend meetings, will be fulfilled.
