What are the tortilla chips doing in the freezer?

All week I've been trying to pinpoint the exact moment I lost the majority of my brain cells. Because I found an open bag of tortilla chips in the freezer and I know I did it and couldn't think fast enough to blame it on someone else. I just stood there with the bag in my hand dumbfounded. I don't remember doing it, I stared at the frozen bag trying to jog my memory. I remember eating them and they were sealed tight, that's a big clue I have going against me, because I'm the only one in the house that understands the "things get stale" philosophy.
"Who put these in the....................oh."
I could see their minds churning, should we say something or just start looking for Nursing Homes that specialize in dementia?
When you think of it, they're the ones, Boy#1, Boy#2 and Boy#3, that are the reason I'm in the state I'm in now and they're the ones that will probably put me away. Funny how that works, isn't it?
We keep the chips and pretzels on top of the refrigerator, it's a stretch but the tortilla chips could have fallen off the top, made a U-turn and landed on the shelf of the freezer, maybe. I wonder if they have Internet hook up in the Nursing Homes.

Don't feel bad 'cause I'm right there with you! I bet your kids planted them in the freezer just so you would think you were crazy. I firmly believe mine do things like that.

At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

I do empathize - I almost said, "I've done that before," out of empathy (pity.) But I never have.

Usually I just stand in front of the refrigerator trying to remember what I came into the kitchen for.

I've been doing shit like that since my twenties.

I'm totally screwed.

At least you're putting FOOD in the freezer. I once put the mail in the refrigerator. No I am not kidding. And I can't even use kids as an excuse!

As long as you're finding your tortilla chips in the freezer you're okay.

It's the day you find your underwear in the freezer and a pound of hamburger in your dresser drawer that you're in trouble.

There is nothing wrong with being a sandwich short of a picnic!

The Happy Valley Home for The Tortilla-ly Insane has an opening, if you are interested.

Who are you and why am I here?

Oh yeah. Weird stuff in freezer.

So far, so good, but when it starts, I'll have nobody to blame.

So, how'd they taste? Fresh? Fresher than usual? I've never thought about chilling my chips until now, but it could be a new food trend that'll take the nation by storm! Thanks for the innovative thinking, Sue!

Sue said...

You know Deb, those kids would plant them there now that I think of it. Sock and underwear for Christmas!

Relax Max - I believe that's what happened to me. I was thinking about something much more important than chips, probably Dancing With The Stars.

Candice - You start blaming those children now!

Margaret - When you think you're one brick short of a load there's always someone who's missing two, thank you.

Pearl - Dear God it I get that bad I'll committ myself.

Symdaddy - Would you send me a link to that Tortilla-ly place when you get a chance?

Carol - You must blame your husband, you must.

Mike - I'm ahead of my time, I know.
