Milk And

Personal Bits

As a kid, whenever Laverne would dump a small bottle of Pepsi into her milk, I would instinctively gag. Don’t get me wrong, I love milk. I’ve come down to Skim milk after years of weaning. I wish we had 1% when I was going through kicking the whole milk habit.

The last big meal I had at my mother-in-law’s, she brought out a plate of salad that was swimming in a pale white liquid. I nibbled a leaf. Delish! Much like a Japanese salad dressing… I asked what it was. “Milk and vinegar” I was told and suddenly my stomach flipped.

I have a thing about curdled milk. If I think that any additive will make milk turn into solids, I can’t eat it. I can’t look at it. It comes from my childhood, gobbling down milk that was so chunky, it was 99% curds. Growing up in our house meant you scrambled for food, oblivious to the taste. As soon as the first blobs hit my teeth, I sprayed milk and whey across the kitchen.

I chewed through it. It wasn’t bad, in fact I enjoyed the taste. But my brain was hotwired to reject it.

Milk should have no additives!

    This post reminds me of that scene in Heathers when Christian Slater and Winona Ryder are trying to come up with a concoction to make Heather barf: “Milk and orange juice: what’s the upchuck factor on that?”

    I believe the saying around the house was “Give it to Teddy…” etc.

    I tried Milk + Pepsi many moons ago, before the lactose intolerant days. It wasn’t bad, but it certainly wasn’t good either. Milk + Vinegar = ewww in my brain too.
