I just got into the office and realized that I forgot something -- my lunch. Now, you might wonder why this has in me such a panic. Afterall, I can just buy a lunch from one of the many restaurants near my office. That's not the issue. I'm wondering where I left the plastic shopping bag with the gladware box filled with spaghetti and meat sauce. If I left it out on the kitchen table, I don't know what could be happening right now.
Could the boys be eating the plastic shopping bag, swallowing pieces of gladware, and munching through to the meat sauce? Could they be batting little pieces of pasta across the floor? What happens if a cat eats pieces of plastic shopping bag or gladware or meat sauce?
Chances are pretty good that I left my lunch in the bedroom, which the boys do not have access to. You might ask why I bring my lunch into the bedroom, but you see, I have to grab things from the fridge before I put my coat on (and I have to keep my coat in the bedroom because the cats would be all the dangling parts of the coat. Also, getting anything out of the fridge is a singular ordeal that requires my full attention and cannot be done with my coat on. I must deftly grab whatever I need from the fridge before one of the boys jumps inside. I also have to be careful about closing the door too quickly in haste, because usually one of the boys has stuck his head under the refridgerator door while I'm grabbing my food.
