Infocom games were popular, InfoWorld said, in part because "in offices all over America (more than anyone realizes) executives and managers are playing games on their computers". An estimated 25% had a computer game "hidden somewhere in their drawers", Inc. reported, and they preferred Infocom adventures to arcade games.
Infocom adventures are much easier to hide in plain sight on your screen when your boss walks in.
"Oh, I'm just typing up a document here, boss. Lot's of text in this one."
I remember playing Adventure on a big IBM machine where my mom worked, I guess it would have been in the mid-late-70s or something. That was probably my first interaction with a computer, that I can remember.
They were really cool games. It's almost a shame that new gamers aren't required to start with text adventures and work their way through Atari 2600 games and only then be allowed to play current stuff.
My wife and I have an understanding - when I speak, I'm wrong.

Depends on the packaging; if it is a bottle, it goes in the fridge-door, unless the cap is gone. If it is a cardboard-pack, or coffeemilk, it goes on the top-shelf - NEVER on the bottom-shelf, which is the coldest place of the fridge.
In case of multiple milks existing (as should be), the normal milk in the back, then the cat's milk, then the coffee-milk. The larger volume in front is "not efficient", as you have to take it out to reach behind it.
Milk in a can should be covered with plastic wrap to prevent condens from your fridge falling into the milk. It is only allowed to be in the fridge if the outside is not sticky. If it is sticky, clean it before putting it in the fridge.
And most important; don't put it on the glass in the fridge directly, but on the baking-paper that is covering the glass to prevent stains and circle's. If you spill anything on that paper, take it all out and replace it.
