Do You Like Milk?

HydrantHydrant Posts: 7,773 ✭✭✭✭✭

I like milk. I can't get enough of it. Since I was a baby. I've never understood why some people don't like milk. The Lovely Mrs. Hydrant™ loves milk too. The Little Hydrants drink it by the gallon. I never could figure out why some people don't like milk. WHY?.....It's good for you......Do you like milk?


I like milk....

    The fall of 1987…

    That morning I weighed myself and I was right under 119 lb right between 118.5 &118.75 -- I had about 10oz to12 oz glass of milk and went to school for my wrestling match.

    When it was time the weigh-in official’s called 119 and please step on the scale. They said 119 you’re over by 1/8th of a pound please step off the scale and we will re-check the scale.

    119 please step on the scale you’re over by 1/8th You’ll have to forfeit…

    I have not had a glass of milk since that day…

    Yes, but only with a snack!

    I love it. I put a bottle in my drink bag every morning in tons of ice. Then have it ice cold as I head out to my first job of the day!

    Just one more thing about the cookies, back in my high school in the 90s, they used to sell these Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookies in the school cafeteria, best chocolate chip cookies I've ever tasted in my life, hands down, and it's not even close. They also used to sell them at Subway, I don't know if they still do. They make other flavors as well, but I was legit hooked on the chocolate chip. I don't know what they do to those cookies to make them so good, but every other chocolate chip cookie I've ever tasted in my life has been a huge disappointment compared to Otis Spunkmeyer.

    My Cap’n Crunch, Corn Pops, Frosted Flakes, rice crispies, wheaties, corn flakes, fruit loops, cheerios, or super crisps would taste really dry without milk. Almost always 2% milk if not then whole milk (vitamin D).

    I had a conversation with my oldest son about the reasons for/specifics of people being lactose intolerant around the world. This was maybe one year ago, and I remember it being pretty in depth, involving geography, history, etc. It was also one sided. He was explaining things to me. I remember nothing of the details. If someone wants to take this thread in that direction it might be interesting.

    Michael Milken at midday meticulously munches a melting Milky Way with milk.

    Or so I’ve heard.

    O.K., ...I'll take the bait.....It all centers around a friend of mine , Norm, who was born in a geographic location far to the West across the Pacific Ocean. So,....I asked Norm if he wanted to go up to the North Rim of The Grand Canyon for a little camp out... At Crazy Jug Point. He said, "O.K."...

    What Norm didn't tell me was that he was bringing along two lady friends of his. They were also from a geographic location far to the West across the Pacific Ocean. 👯 I'll leave the dirty details out🤦...Anyway, the trip went smoothly except Norm dropped his camera over a cliff. No big deal.
    Then we headed home after three fabulous days of sightseeing!😏💃.....
    This is where the lactose intolerance part comes in......

    If was denied either of two things, milk and peanut butter, I don't think life would be worth living.

    PB is a healthy snack for me, just a big spoonful instead of other stuff. What's fluff?

    Showboat.... I never finished my post. You know me. I was so busy editing it and then the whole thing went POOF! I thought. I didn't know any of it got posted. I just gave up and deleted it this morning. It was, I thought, A funny story about a friend of mine. He is from Taiwan. There were young ladies involved. They were from Taiwan too......Norm tried playing macho man for the girls by drinking a milk shake at Whiskey Pete's. On the way home.

    Whiskey Pete's has the Bonnie and Clyde Death Car on display.

    The two girls looked at him like he was nuts because they don't drink milk.....lactose intolerance! Well, poor Norm. Probably the first and last milk shake he ever had.....Needless to say, the rest of the trip home was,......well....interesting....
    Poor Norm...

    I only like milk on cereal. Otherwise it’s well down on my list.

    An ice cold glass of milk with a plateful of bacon and eggs for breakfast is amazing. I like to buy a gallon then freeze half of it in 10oz portions to use with canned soups.

    Ice cream is my sin but I still feel odd eating it. Milk, sugar, chemicals.

    Have a nice day
