Clean Out That Fridge!
By Beth Beutler
1 "Ugh," I said to my sister Melody. "This is almost as bad as the time we had to clean out our lockers!"
2 "Almost, but not quite. Remember that Tommy had that sandwich in there for about six months."
3 "Oh, that's right. Peww!" I clamped my nose shut, remembering the stench.
4 Today, we were helping our mother clean out our refrigerator. Usually, we clean it about once per week, but we had had a very busy summer. I can't tell you how many weeks went by before we finally investigated what was in there!
5 We started with the crisper drawer. Of course, the things in there were no longer crisp.
6 "Yuck," Melody said as she picked up a wilted carrot. "This carrot is shriveled and moldy!"
7 "And take a look at this apple - or rather, what is left of it!" I replied.
8 "Eewww," she answered.
9 We then took a look at the side shelves. Mom checked the dates on the labels. Several salad dressings were way past their freshness date.
