nick: 'i threw out some yogurt today. it was expired.'
shan: 'no it's not. i just bought it.'
nick: 'but it said february 06'
shan: 'yes, february 06, 2007.'
nick: 'no. they wouldn't do that.'
shan: 'um, they do. today my yogurt said january 26. does that mean it's good for 19 more years?'
nick: 'shut up. i hate you. you're gonna tell everyone now, aren't you?'
