What's in YOUR desk drawer?
Ew...I just tried to open my desk drawer, but it wouldn't open all the way. So, after yanking in vain for a minute or so, I got out of my chair and got eye level with the ornery little bugger.I quickly spotted the problem: A Dole pineapple cup that has probably been at The Enquirer as long as, if not longer than, me. I can't remember whether or not I put it there. There is a chance that I inherited it, just as I inherited a box of Mike and Ikes, an R.W. Knudsen juicebox, a stick of Trident and a butter knife. The knife is actually kinda cute...I finally reached it, but not before I felt sticky wetness. All that yanking opened the package. So now my cubicle smells like a pineapple upside down cake... that someone baked several years ago... I repeat: Ew.So, what foodie abominations dwell in your desk drawer? Give us a virtual peek...(Above) A pineapple during happier times, like before rotting in someone's desk drawer...
