Living, Loving & Leftovers

This column initially appeared in the May 2019 edition of Gaston Alive! Magazine.

The year was 1993. A man named Meat Loaf topped the music charts in 28 countries with the song “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)”.

It’s been over 26 years now and after 67 million views on the official Youtube video, no one had been quite sure what the word ‘that’ means in the song – until now. I finally figured it out. Mr. Loaf won’t give up his personal collection of Chinese food soup containers.

With a name like Meat Loaf, you’re bound to have leftovers from time to time, and thus, you need something to store said leftovers in. Nothing does the job better than the Chinese food soup container.

You know the ones – the “no frills-no spills” translucent 16-ounce containers that at one time transported your Wonton soup from your favorite Chinese restaurant safely and effectively back to your house.
