HUBS: Hey Hon, we gotta get this frig under control.
ME: What do you mean?
HUBS: It’s a mess. Come on, I can’t even find the mustard.
ME: What? Nah. I clean it out every year.
HUBS: No way. I bet I can find something in here over a year old.
ME: I double dog dare you to find anything in that frig over a year old.
In the world of men, a double dog dare is non-negotiable. You just can’t throw that out there willy nilly. If you use it, ya better mean it.

The Hubs tore into the frig with great gusto. I’ve never seen him so intent. Bottles flew past me on the way to the trash can. Tubs of old margarine, skunky beer, and nasty half-used bottles of marinade all removed and disposed of efficiently.
In the process we experienced a few moments of self-awareness, including the realization that we possess a bit of a hoarding issue when it comes to mustard…Hon, do we have any mustard? Click To Tweet
Oh, and about that double dog dare. Turns out, the Hubs was right. He shouted and danced with glee when he discovered this gem in the way back, second shelf.
Yes, the Hubs was the victor. The king of this double dog dare. But here’s a little secret: take a look at the frig post clean-out.
You see, I am dumb, but I am not so dumb.
ME: Hey Hon, I bet you can’t find that NC State sweatshirt in the closet.
