Oldsters do the darnedest things
When the home aides rebelled against cooking with the past-dates food from the deep freeze, my father finally capitulated and threw out all the mastodon-era steaks and Jurassic frozen peas.

But, he found, it makes an excellent file cabinet for old documents that he wasn’t quite ready to throw away.
