The Story of the Empty Milk Carton
Ethan took out a carton of milk from the refrigerator. That is the only carton of milk left that day. He poured out some milk and kept the carton back into the refrigerator. Seeing big brother having milk to drink, Ayden asked for it too so I went to get some only to find that the carton of milk is already EMPTY. Rage mode ON but I decided to play it cool. I gave Ayden chocolate drink instead.
We went grocery shopping soon after. I deliberately skipped buying milk. In the evening, Ethan went into the kitchen to pour himself some milk but yeah, you can guess what happened.
He told me we ran out of milk. I said, “No way. There is a carton of milk in the fridge. Surely there is SOME milk in there?” He said, “NOPE. It’s empty”. I jumped at the golden opportunity and asked, “That’s impossible! Now WHO would keep an EMPTY milk carton in the fridge?!”
I left it at that and later that evening, I found that empty milk carton already in our recycling box.
I smiled to myself while texting the Daddy to get some milk on his way home
In case you don’t already know, I collect empty milk cartons for my garden. I grow spinach in them.
We also do craft with empty milk cartons so these empty milk cartons will never go to waste in our house BUT they are NOT to be kept in the fridge. They belong in the recycling box until I have time to make something out of them.
