Best Idea Ever
Snack-stashing is a time-honored tradition across all generations. Who hasn't kept half a cookie in their pocket for just the right occasion, or was thankful to find one of those peanut butter cracker packages in the bottom of their bag at a key moment during the day?
A girl, 9, has taken the practice one step further and used her lip balm container as a place to store some cheese.
In Case of Hunger, Turn Lip Balm
This makes perfect sense, because it can travel so easily in your pocket, where your body temperature can keep the cheese warm and soft. If you like a cooler, room-temperature snack cheese, then leave it in your purse or backpack.
Cheese Balm Idea Not Cheesy At All
The news was posted by the girl's mom, Valerie Schremp Hahn, who had to take some flack from people calling her a "cheese narc."
There can never be any such thing as a cheese narc; in addition, Schremp Hahn reminded people on social media that the kids are allowed to bring snack to school, so stop getting cheesed off that you didn't come up with this insanely awesome idea.
The daughter is being lauded as a "genius" for coming up with something that should have been so obvious to everyone in the first place, if it wasn't for everyone being afraid to think outside the box.
