Plastic Wrap Much?
When you live in a house with immigrants, you have jars that look like this.
No. It's not enough that they already have lids that screw on tightly and fit properly. Ingredients must be protected from leakage at all times. That's where the plastic wrap and rubber bands come in.
There must always be a Costco-sized roll of plastic and a drawer with a corner dedicated to a pile of miscellaneous rubber bands. You never know when you will need to close a bottle of rum, or a jar of shrimp sauce that now holds vegetable oil.
Immigrants: you know exactly what I'm talking about. This is what your shelves look like.
Non-immigrants: welcome to my kitchen.
