Quarantine Conversations with Husband

Yesterday I used the last Q-tip in the package. (This is only a noteworthy feat due to the fact that the package is a Costco sized package and contained 625 Q-tips. In addition to this, it is one of three 625 Q-tip packages that came in the trifecta of Costco Q-tip packaging. We still have two more boxes to go.)  I pointed this out to Husband, excited to share with him my great achievement. His response was so lackluster as to be forgettable.

This morning I got to use the first Q-tip from the new package.

me: I’m so excited, I get to use a fresh Q-tip!

Husband: I don’t think it is fresh considering it has probably been in that package for years.

me: Not to be discouraged – Well, freshly opened then. I take it out of the packaging and start cleaning my post-shower ears, disregarding the warnings to not insert Q-tip into your ear. It is not as fluffy as I expected it to be.

I deftly flip the Q-tip over and start on my second ear. The Q-tip is in my ear, when Husband says, “Maybe it’s expired.”

It did give me a moment of pause, albeit a short one.

    Expired Q-tips are a terrible thing.

  2. I can see everybody disregards the “do not insert in the ear”!
