The stuff of nightmares

The husband is out of town for a few days, so I'm indulging in all my favorite foods that make his skin crawl. This morning's breakfast was scrambled eggs with kimchi. But this is the (warning?) label on my kimchi:

"Attention in the use: For degasing it by the fermentation, it is not complete sealing up. Liquid leaks by reverse and toppling over. Because it is fermentation food, please refrigerate it by all means. The normal temperature leaving hastens fermentation without being concerned in the expiration date, and acidity is reflected early."

Okay, I get that it should be refrigerated, but what the hell is "liquid leaks by reverse and toppling over"? Will the jar soak up all the water in the air and then fall out of my fridge? Should I tie it down? The thought of water-logged kimchi rattling around in my fridge is a little disconcerting.

    I have posted comments, but they are not being shown on your blog. Your narrative is hilarious and I have thoroughly enjoyed your writing talents.

  2. Hmmm....sorry they're not showing up. I'll see what I can do. And I'm glad you're enjoying my (mis)adventures!
