After Opening

Little Miss Thing, age 6: “Does the syrup bottle go in the fridge or the cabinet?”

Me: “Does the label say refrigerate after opening?”

LMT: (reading) “Yes!”

Me: “Then it goes in the fridge.”

[20 minutes later]

Me: “Why is the syrup bottle in the fridge with the cap off???”

LMT: “It says to put it in with the cap off.”

Me: “It says… what?”

LMT: (pointing to label) “See… Refrigerate after opening.”

Me: (slow blink) “You’re absolutely right.”
