The mister and I made a run to Costco Friday night without the kids. As we were loading our purchases in the van I noticed something suspicious peaking out from the back seat...
This is the very last row of seats in our van.
...and yes, that is a gallon of milk.
It wasn't open or leaking or anything bad but it got me to thinking. The last time I had purchased milk was about a week earlier. Which means that it must have shifted on the way home and I missed it when I unloaded. I usually have a few little helpers bringing stuff in for me so I didn't keep track of how many gallons made it into the house that day.
One week-- ONE SOLID WEEK, this milk has been driving around in the back seat of our van. I asked the kids about it and they claimed that they didn't notice it.
Um... you didn't notice an entire gallon of milk just floating around in the back seat?
How is that even possible?
Which proves that minivans are pits of darkness. If you want something forgotten, just pass it to the back seat. Your backseat is a virtual time capsule of random stuff you never want to remember. Chicken Nugget from 2001-- I'm sure we've got one. Last year's happy meal toy? We've got a stash. Old DS cartage? We've got oodles wedged between the seats. Need a pen? Check under the seat.
If you are reading this and have not had the pleasure of driving with children in your car-- don't judge. Just wait, it will happen to you too. I promise.
