Last Friday was a busy day for me. I met my father for lunch, which then overlapped into getting together with a childhood friend who was in town for the week. In the midst of all the fun, I somehow forgot to give even a single thought to planning dinner. My husband had worked a 3 A.M. – 3 P.M. shift, and there was no way I was going to ask him to prepare a meal. (In our family, the person who works gets an automatic pass on meal prep and cleanup.)
So I ordered Thai takeout.
Pad thai, salad rolls, green beans in black bean sauce, sesame beef, chicken in lemongrass. Yum, yum, yum!
And it was delicious until my younger son found a nest of hair in his food.
Gag, gag, gag.
I called the restaurant, and they immediately refunded the price of the entire meal.
At this point we all pretty much stopped eating, (although we’d all filled up anyway.)
I looked through the rest of the containers, and wasn’t able to find any more hair, but it was nonetheless tainted and unappetizing. However, I did put it all into the fridge, where it still sits. Which brings me to the question:
What should I do with the leftover Thai food? I neither want to throw it away, nor do I want to feed it to anyone. I feel like such a privileged American, but there you have it.
