Please note the piece of bread on the middle shelf.
The other day I told Ibis that something in the fridge smelled bad. I keep it pretty clean so the odds of anything rotting in the back are slim to none, but something was clearly unhappy.
"Can you find what's causing the smell?" I asked.
"I'll take a look."
Famous last words. I didn't pay attention to whether he actually investigated the odor, but later in the day I saw this lonely piece of bread. My initial reaction was frustration. Why didn't he put the bread back in the bag when he decided not to eat it? But then I wondered, Did he leave it out on purpose?
I've heard that various food items absorb odors, often when you really rather they didn't, so maybe he was just being clever. As much as I enjoy giving him credit when it's deserved, I can't decide if this is one of those situations.
So what do you think? Genius, or lazy?
ps - For those of you who've heard me speak of it, the big dark object in the upper left corner is our 4L jug of wine.
