I Am Paranoid…

I went to open my coffee creamer I just bought over the weekend and it didn’t have a security tag on it and it appeared someone had taken some out of it.  I’m the only adult in the house right now and I know I didn’t open it and my kids are too little to accomplish such a task.

So, it’s going back to the store.

You may think I’m paranoid about this but this isn’t the first time this has happened to me.

I once bought a bakery cake that had a whole slice missing!  I didn’t notice it until I got home and I was so mad I had to drive all the way back to the store to exchange it.

So, it’s an inconvenience (and a bummer since drinking coffee with milk is not quite the same) but one I can deal with.

I am taking no chances on being poisoned here.  I know, it’s a long shot.  But I don’t want a repeat of the Tylenol deaths.  I always assume the worst in these things and am glad I do.  Bad things happen and as a parent it’s up to me to do my utmost to prevent the ones that are preventable, which includes protecting Mommy as well.

I got too much to live for.  Don’t you?
