The five-week rule?

(Courtesy: cedarposts.blogspot.com)

You've heard of the five-second rule, right? It's the unwritten rule that if you drop a morsel of food and it's only on the floor five seconds or less (and, hopefully, no one is looking), it's quite all right to pick up said morsel and continue snacking.

Consumer note: Don't do this! Yesterday I dropped a piece of a Frito on the floor under my desk. I picked it up well under the allotted five seconds and ate it. So good so far, right? Wrong. When I picked it off the floor in a hurry I noticed another Frito tidbit in the general vicinity. Hurrying like crazy to beat the clock, I tossed that piece of Frito in my mouth, chewed it about half-of-once and swallowed.

Y-u-u-c-c-c-c-k-k-k! It was definitely old -- near-petrified, actually -- and obviously not from yesterday's spillage. Then I remembered. The last time we had a bag of Fritos in the house was about five weeks ago.

I don't feel so good. I'm going back to bed.
