Milk.. it does a body good… but not mine

Okay.. so we’ve all heard it.. “Milk, it does a body good”.. and “Got Milk”… we all know that milk is good for our bones and we should drink some everyday but I gotta tell you… ewww..  Seriously.. ewww.  I dunno, maybe I wasn’t breast fed, maybe I had a really bad experience, Maybe one time as a young child I decided to be like my dad or my big brother and just take a swig out of the carton and it was soured.. who knows.. all I know is… eww.. truly.. ewww.  Milk is just disgusting.  I mean, who looked at a cow one day and thought.. I’m gonna pull on them teats and whatever comes out of it, oh yeah… I’m gonna drink it cause that’s some good looking stuff.  If I would have been the first one to A) Milk the cow and B) see the white stuff come out… I’d seriously think it was seamen and I’m sorry but I really don’t want to drink my husbands, there’s no way I wanna chug a cow!  Okay, okay.. I realize that you get milk from the female cows and they don’t have seamen.. but it does have the appearance and frankly.. think about it.. you have to “yank” on them before the white stuff come’s out!  Again… ewwww

Now I do realize that some really good thing’s come from milk.. like butter.. yummy yummy butter… and there’s nothing better then melted butter on bread/crab legs/lobster/popcorn just to name a few.  Cheese, cheese comes from milk and I love cheese.  If it wasn’t for cheese my bones would be as brittle as I’m sure Honey Boo Boo’s arteries are going to be a some point!

I'd rather drink milk then ever watch this live

So Milk.. it may do a body good, but not mine!  Milk is only good on cereal and even then I’d like for my spoon to have holes in it to drain the milk out before I eat it!  The only thing that makes milk tolerable is… you guessed it.. CHOCOLATE!!!  Okay.. and maybe for some Oreo’s.. but honestly.. I don’t like Oreo’s either..lol
