Go ahead. Just take a guess...

Tell me what these two pictures have in common. Can you guess?







Take a look at the first picture a little closer -- see the collender?

Well, Saturday this lovely collender had been used for cleaning out our beautiful, but slimey, fish bowl. Then, carelessly set aside to be sterilized later. I know, its pretty gross, but I didn't have a lot of options for cleaning the mess, so I justified that I would personally sterilize it later.

Sunday night came and the collender still sat on the counter -- looking clean, but riddled with fish excrement and other germs. J, being the sweet, helpful boy he is, made some Mac -N- Cheese for dinner last night. And, when it came time to drain the noodles? Well, of course he would use the one on the counter -- close to him. And it did look clean afterall.

When did our family find out about it? This morning. AFTER, we had eaten (and probably digested) fish leftovers.

Slimey, nasty, disgusting fish leftovers. Yup, we ate it.

Now I know in some countries, that may be considered a delicacy. But in this house, it is pretty much considered NASTY! Bleggghhh!

We just don't have a lot of luck with fish. Maybe we should stop keeping them in the kitchen.

Nasty! But pretty funny too. My kids love playing with my strainers/bowls everything. And there may have been a few times after they have been playing with them (sticking them on their heads and who knows what else) that I was desperate and needed one and used it without them being washed.

Yeah, that is gross! But sounds like something that would have happened in my house ;)

Thanks for the laugh this morning! I can't believe you would share that--I would probably threaten my children to tell NO ONE! That's why I love you Kathy--you tell it like it is, and well, sometimes it's YUCK!

At least you didn't leave the fish in the colander too. See, it could have been worse.
