I was cutting a piece of cheese from this block of cheddar, but I was using a knife without taking the block out of the ziploc bag.
"Cutting cheese with a butter knife while it's still inside the bag," Gloria said. "Hmm."
"Works for me," I said.
"You know that you can put the cheese on a cutting board," she said.
"Sure, but then the cutting board is dirty, and that's one more thing to wash," I said.
"What you don't realize is that I was seriously considering just tearing off a hunk of cheese with my hand so that the knife wouldn't be dirty, either," I said. "You really dodged a bullet there."
