I’m just a soul whose intentions are good

huroniceBut yaknow, today, after a long day of work, I got home and walked over to the Plum Market. Milk was on my list. We don’t drink a lot of milk around here. I have never been all that crazy about milk and the huge eight ounce glasses The Commander served us at dinner back in the day was almost more than I could stand. Nowadays I buy a quart and when we are almost out or the GG leaves an empty quart container in the sink after using it on his morning cereal, I buy another quart.

I like to stay ahead of the Milk Supply Situation but I don’t always manage it but that’s okay because it gives me an excuse to walk over to the Plum to get more. What I don’t want to happen is for the GG to pour spoiled milk on his cereal. That *has* happened and I was appalled when I returned from my 0-Skunk-30 walk once last fall and saw the remains. Jeebus!

Today when I got home from my walk it was still dark and there was an empty milk carton in the sink. There was also some cereal in the compost bin and I’m not sure what that was about because it was dry and therefore not adulterated by bad milk. But who knows. I was excited to have an after-work mission to the Plum to look forward to. Milk and a few other grokkeries. Alas… I thought I reached for 2% milk this afternoon but when I got home I had definitely purchased *skim milk*. Sorry buddy. I hope you can deal with skim milk on your cereal for the next week or so. Fortunately I buy milk in small quantities now. Gone are the days when I bought at least two gallons per week with small beach urchins in tow.

Oh lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.

    Skim milk is nasty. I use 2% too, although I do order non-fat when I go out for coffee. I’m not much of a milk drinker but I do like it in mochas. 🙂
