"It's time to milk the cow" is what I always announce when milk needs to be purchased from the store.  I have to admit my household consumes a lot of milk.  In fact, we love milk!  I say "we", but it's actually me who consumes large quantities of moo juice. 

Earlier this week upon picking up my youngest son from work I made my usual announcement thinking we'd just stop at a convenience store on the way home.  I have the "I buy, you fly" policy so he knew he'd be expected to go in the store, but wouldn't have to spend his own money.  What ensued from Point A to Point B was a 30 minute dissertation about me drinking too much milk.  I graciously listened and simply asked him as we pulled into the store parking lot, "So what's the bottom line?  Am I supposed to stop drinking so much milk?"  My theory is that he just didn't feel like going into the store because the answer to my question was a quick "no" as I parked the car. He did come back with a Milky Way as a peace offering, so I guess his whole dissertation was a moot point, but one in which he was willing to concede his defeat. 

Before any of you start typing out a response telling me that large amounts of dairy might not be good for me, let me move on to the rest of the story.  I have a vitamin D deficiency.  For the last 9 months I take huge quantities of prescribed vitamin D, but my numbers never improve when I have blood tests done every 3 months.  I remain hopeful, but in the meantime it's time to milk the cow!


  1. You enjoy your dairy I wish I could.

  2. 2nd try I hate these comment boxes.
    Milk is's filling, has protein, and it's expensive, since I like Horizon.

  3. Love that drummer.
    And I think you nailed just why your son delivered that dissertation. Clever - and I love that he gave in gracefully. I have a Vitamin D deficiency myself. Sigh,

    1. My sons are good younger one is so much like his grandmother in ways that it makes me nuts. They both argue with me every time I open my mouth regardless of the subject. I think I'd have a heart attack if either or both just one time said ..."OKAY" LOL

  4. I love milk! Love it! If I could only ever have one liquid for the rest of my life it would be milk. If it isn't in the house I get anxious. There are times when drinking milk almost makes me cry. I am serious! It is so sweet and delicious and healthy. The only stipulation is it has to be non-fat skim milk. We grew up drinking it so that is what I am used to. And do you know what? I have never met anyone that loves milk as much as I do so I love this post.

    1. Kindred spirits are everywhere! Thanks for the picture of the cow.

  5. Milk, ugh.
    I've never been able to drink it, not even when I was little. Water is my drink.
    I buy skim milk only, for Chelsea, and also to put on my cereal.

    Chelsea loves milk and drinks glasses and glasses of it. I don't get it!
