A funny thing happened while Mitch and I were shopping at Hariri today. The new owner stopped us both at different times and told us not go get the bag of fruit bits as they were expired – he also told Mitch he could not sell her milk as it was expired and talked about how he did not want anyone to fall ill as a result. Now anyone who has lived or vacationed on Ambergris Caye is well aware of the need to check expiry dates when buying stuff and how rare it is for shop owners to speak up and not let you buy something when the date is past. What made it even funner to me is after we got home is I pulled out the news paper I had just bought and Paul pointed out it was 3 weeks old.
