The Leftover Rule

What’s the absolute limit on your leftovers? How long is “too long”?

A co-worker was telling me that his family in India never saves leftovers from day to day, they always give them to the homeless and then cook something new the next day. My sister, in her late teens, at least, refused to eat anything leftover in the fridge, with very few exceptions. I, on the other hand, have no problem eating a leftover meal from a week earlier as long as it passes the “it doesn’t smell funny” test and the “it doesn’t have fuzz on it” test.

More frequently, though, leftovers from a big dinner will become lunch for the next few days. Likewise, any leftovers from a lunch out will often become dinner. Fortunately, I rarely have to battle the white fuzz.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
