Things that Don’t Mix: Fish, Microwaves and the Office

Dear Co-worker:

I don’t know who you are, but I can certainly smell your lunch. At least I hope it’s your lunch.

I’m sure that you really love fish. We have that in common. Me? I really like a nice salmon fillet pan-seared in a little extra virgin olive oil, seasoned with some salt and pepper and with a squeeze of lemon. It’s delicious. It really is.

Or maybe your wife, girlfriend, mom, whichever, it really doesn’t matter, wanted to make sure all the left-overs were cleaned out of the fridge. That’s great. I hate to see food go to waste. But here’s the thing; re-heated fish really stinks. Especially when reheated in the microwave.

If I could I’d track you down and tell you in person but, unfortunately, now the whole floor smells like your lunch so I’m not sure where to start. I don’t have the time to walk aimlessly around looking for you and it’s quite possible you could be done by the time I would’ve found you. So instead I’m writing this. I’m hoping, if I’m lucky, you’re one of my three regular visitors to this blog. Probably not.

Well, anyway, please stop eating reheated fish for lunch. Honestly, we’d all really appreciate it.

Oh, and if that smell isn’t your lunch I apologize for all the above. I’d also like to recommend you make a doctor’s appointment.


Your Friend and Colleague,
