It was 7 o’ clock at night. I used my best vacuum sealer to preserve leftover meet, allowing it to stay nice and fresh. I then put it in the fridge for safe keeping. Mr. LimberButt, However, thought it would be a wonderful idea to crack open the fridge and eat it. I walk into the kitchen and there is plastic (from the vacuum seal) torn up and thrown all over the place with most of the meat gone. What kind of cat does such a thing? The question on most people’s mind (including mine) is how the F(#*K did he manage to open the fridge?
The first thing I did was yell at my husband. It’s obvious that while rummaging through the fridge to grab a beer he left it open. All LimberButt had to do was stick his mischievous little nose in there. My husband swore up and down it wasn’t him, but who the hell knows? The best idea I had was that he simply wasn’t paying attention. My husband is extremely ADHD, so there is no telling what he did.
Here’s the thing – and this is really hilarious. He forgot that we have a camera in our living room that captures our kitchen as well. All I had to do was go through the tape and I could find out exactly what happened. I walked upstairs into our computer room and logged onto Arlo to watch the whole thing. It has a nice motion detector that starts recording when it detects motion, so you don’t have to go scrolling through TONS of video. Fortunately, I only saw 3 recordings for the day. One was me putting the fresh meat into the fridge. The second was my husband Dave walking up and grabbing himself his evening beer. The third was Sir LimberButt McCubbins jumping on the counter, climbing on top of the fridge, and nudging the damn refrigerator door open right in front of the camera.
So What Happened?
My husband did not fully close the fridge (as I originally suspected). While he thought he did, he left it barely cracked open. . . just cracked enough for Mr. LimberButt to stick his nose in there so he could eat my future dinner. Ever since he ran for president (and lost miserably BTW), he has a huge EGO and thinks he can walk around like he actually is president of the United States (though that would be a huge step up from our current president, I might add).
Anyways, at the end of the day, it’s not a huge deal. My relationship with LimberButt has never been better and I look forward to him running again in 2020.
