That's how much cheese is sitting in our refrigerator. Stupid Helen and her stupid MBA.
Sometime last year, Helen decided to put on her big girl pants and go back to school to get her MBA. Until today, I have applauded this effort. Until today, there was not 47 POUNDS OF FREE CHEESE in the refrigerator. You're probably wondering what 47 POUNDS OF FREE CHEESE has to do with Helen and her MBA. As a matter of fact, Helen's MBA is the reason we have all this cheese. As part of her degree requirement, Helen took an internship with Land O Lakes for the summer. While Land O Lakes is most often associated with butter, they also make delicious cheeses. Apparently they randomly give out free dairy products every so often at the office. Apparently Helen felt like we needed 47 POUNDS OF FREE CHEESE.
You might be wondering why I'm so upset about 47 POUNDS OF FREE CHEESE. Most people who know me would think that I would be pretty stoked about 47 POUNDS OF FREE CHEESE. Normally those people would be correct about my stoked-ness.
But here's the catch: I've sworn off cheese (amongst other delicious things like beer and Dr. Pepper) until after July 4th weekend. I was getting too fat, so I had to do something about it. I even told Helen about this last week. She knew that I'm trying not to eat cheese. So what does she do? She brings home 47 POUNDS OF IT. FOR FREE.
Oh, and Pip put a bunch of beer in the fridge too.
I'm purposefully avoiding opening the refrigerator.
