See this innocent-looking box of pasta? I bought it at the grocery store about a month ago and put it in my pantry for emergencies. Not my normal brand, but it was cheap.
I’m a label reader. Before I opened the box I automatically checked the expiration date.
I was so surprised by what I saw that I had to show it to my husband after I read it 3 times.
This box of pasta expired nearly 7 years ago. October of 2010, to be exact!
Now I know the store is VERY careful about pulling expired merchandise, which means…
TIME TRAVEL DOES EXIST!
But who, or what, is doing it?
Was the pasta sent here as a test? An experiment with an inanimate object to make sure all was safe before a human jumped through time?
Or is that box of pasta the beginning of an invasion?
If I hadn’t checked the expiration date, I would have tossed those noodles straight into a pot of boiling water.
The water would have reanimated the noodle creatures, setting them free and allowing them the flexibility they’d need to take over the world.
Bwa ha ha ha!
I can see them now. Slimy creatures that creep through each neighborhood, intent on destroying any non-wheat based creature that gets in their way.
We can’t let it happen.
We’ve got to band together and check those expiration dates.
It’s the only way we can stop the noodle invasion.
