Pantry Challenge Update: Desperate Note from Real Dad

by Joel on February 21, 2011

Pantry-Challenged Fridge

A stark depiction of the brutal living conditions that define a month-long pantry challenge. At least the orange juice is happy.

Antarctica. February 2011.

Provisions running dangerously low. My Chunky Soup stash that would normally have lasted ’til winter’s end is exhausted. I struggle to find items for the already-meager lunches I take to work. No sweets or treats as far as the eye can see.

Yesterday, the following exchange took place:

Henry: (gazing longingly into an months-old bag of stale popcorn from the pantry) “All that’s in here is crumbs!”

Sally: (curtly) “That’s all we got.”

The cats look like large, walking sirloin steaks.

If anyone reads this message, please airdrop a bag of Goldfish crackers. Something! Anything!

Pssst…Joel…I blew the budget last week so come on over to our house. There is a large pot of chili in the frigde, homemade cheddar scones, and even some monster cookies. We’ll set a plate out for you. :)
