Oooh! A boring story written by an uncouth alcoholic … now relates directly to the my life …
Not the alcoholic … the story.
And I’m not talking about teenage girls getting naked and circling their nipples with lipstick (unfortunately) to tease the parish priest, nor the 40yr old women reminiscing about getting jiggy with multiple blokes in the barnyard.
I’m referring more to the dreams of the village milkman … pouring his churns of milk into the river and complaining that there’s too much milk in the mixture.
The last bastion (large company) that bottles milk here has recently thinned the milk so much it’s like water. I’ve always complained hat milk in the city tasted like water … but now they’ve bested themselves.
They’ve suddenly added the new seal to the top (to seal the freshness) I guess so that they can ship them overseas, and watered the milk down, to at least 1/2 of the previous creaminess. It’s not skim milk, but it now has no taste or texture.
Has this happened anywhere else?
And how peeved were you when it happened?
Or are you a skim milk drinker?
