When no one is looking....
Drink milk out of the gallon jug ?
Squirt the aerosol can of cheese in your mouth ?
Ditto with the whipped cream ?
Drop that fillet of fish on the floor and fry it?
What have you done hoping no one was watching ????
When I was a teenage babysitter, I used to drink Hersey's chocolate syrup out of the can late at night. Gross, I know. What would the parents have thought? Now, as an adult, I never buy the stuff, but a year ago my mom brought some over for sundaes and I ended up with most of it left behind in the fridge. It's still there and I haven't had single swig. What's happened to me?
True Character is how you behave when no one is watching! (I think that's how the quote goes?)
I confess NOTHING on this thread.
Ok wait- one time I was also babysitting and I snuck a hunk of a candy bar I found in my Aunt's pantry, right next to her flour, and sugar, and vanilla (can you see where this is going?) Man I NEVER wanted to steal a bite of anyone's 'chocolate bar' EVER again- it was unsweetened, and it was a tiny nibble of hell!
No to the milk, but I have been known to have a bit of Hershey's syrup from the jug (a la Glencora!) when I am in need of chocolate & have none in the house.
As for the can of whipped cream, at the mere sound of the can spraying, all 3 kids and the (now departed) dog would line up in the kitchen waiting for their turns! No sneaking possible, that dog had ears like a bat.
Oh yeah, that's good stuff!
I don't drink milk out of the carton, but I think it must be because of the size of the carton, because I've been known to take a swig out of a carton of heavy cream (I live alone). I'll eat a spoonful of peanutbutter straight out of the jar, but I don't double dip. It never even occurred to me that it was "bad" to take pickles or olives out of the jar with my fingers!
Whether I apply the five second rule depends on how recently the housecleaner has been in. And actually, I'd better scoop it up in less than five, or the dog will beat me to it.
My caramel apple cheesecake recipe calls for a 1/4 cup of caramel...the rest of the jar disappears by the spoonful over the next week or so.
An errant finger sometimes finds its way into the jar of Peanut butter...
Occasional swig of milk or apple juice straight from the jug...
Just used the "5 second rule" last nite when my Saltimbocca jumped on to the floor instead of "into the mouth" adam
