I’m not sure where this came from but when I picked up the kids from day camp the other day I got the question of all questions from Jonathan:
“Does skim milk come from athletic cows?”
When I compare this to what I once believed (that chocolate milk comes from brown cows) I realize that we live in a different world today. A world where kids are just . . . smarter and more aware.
My answer: “Of course skim milk comes from athletic cows. It has something to do with the hormones.”
Me: “Just because farming is in my heritage doesn’t mean I understand it. Ask grandpa.”
Consider yourself warned.
