Should I be concerned?
My coworker just gave me two packages of a fine, white powder and asked me to deliver them to her brother (whom I've never met).
I joked with her about making me deliver drugs, and then I read the label, which says "A complete line of supplies for wine and beer."
She claims that if you mix this stuff (Tartaric acid) with heavy cream, it makes marscapone.
Of course, her brother will only be able to make the marscapone if I don't find a higher bidder before him. I'll sell at $2000/oz.
This actually reminds me of the time that I found a small bottle with small white pills in it just inside my apartment door. I had no idea what these pills in this unmarked bottle were. First I wondered if my roommate was doing drugs. Then I started going through the list of all of my friends who had been to my apartment that week, and I tried to imagine all of them doing drugs. I'm sorry to say that I even narrowed it down to the two most likely candidates. (Magoo, Rags, if you're reading this, I'm sorry for ever suspecting you of drug use.) And I really felt that I was in a horrible sort of moral dilemma.
Then I found out that it was my landlord's nitroglycerin for his heart condition.
