20. Day Old Bread
What’s one lousy day after expiration when you got a five grain Italian loaf for half price? It was a day old when they put it out, and by the time you bring it home it’s two days old. The fact is that no one eats the whole loaf in a day never enters your mind, and soon it’s been in your breadbox for a week, growing green fungus. The same goes for wilted veggies and bruised fruit. No one ever eats it in time– but still it seems like such a bargain.
