“Did you check the date before you used it?’
Harry looked up from his book at his dad. “What do you mean, dad?”
“I found this carton of milk on the kitchen counter and its way past the expiration date, so did you check the date before using it? “
“But, I didn’t use the milk, in fact I didn’t go into the kitchen at all”
“Then who could it be? “Dad was quite perplexed.
“Maybe Matt has come home and he used it? “
His dad shouted out Matt’s name and got no response.
Now things were getting crazy, as there was no one else in their house and clearly someone had opened the fridge, taken out the expired carton of milk and had left it laying about in the kitchen.
Harry got up and went into the kitchen to investigate.
The back door was bolted from inside and there was just the cat sitting near the screen door. And suddenly Harry noted that the cat’s plate was full of milk.
But……. it cannot be the cat? Could it?
Today’s prompt: “Did you check the date before you used it?’
