10 Jul

Seeing this upcoming holiday reminded me of the first house I lived in during college.

National Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day (7/29) is a food-themed holiday, but instead of indulging in ice cream or hot dogs (both celebrated on 7/23, both giving a boost to Pepto sales on 7/24), the idea with Cheese Sacrifice is to purchase a morsel of cheese to put into mousetraps.

The circa-1840s house I lived in as a sophomore had a large rat we called the Baconator. Like the monstrous Wendy’s burger, it too struck fear in our hearts and gave us quivers.
