I’ve just had the weirdest proposition. I have this new colleague whose wife gave birth a few months ago and we got to talking about parenthood and babyhood and breastfeeding. His wife isn’t breastfeeding because their baby had gotten used to formula but she still has milk, so I asked, what happens to the bmilk?
He drinks it, says he nonchalantly…
…straight from the mamma machine!
Ummm…errr…. data buffering…10%…30%…52%… 73%…(this was really going very slowly)…88%…90%… data received. He got me there, the sucker! No pun intended.
I realized he was being serious when I did a fake hahaha and he said it was true. If she doesn’t ‘purge’ the milk, she’d be in pain and be at risk of having mastitis. He does have a point, you know?
Anyway, when he found out that I had extra milk, he asked why I wasn’t drinking it. He was serious. Yuck, I said.
Then he asked if I could give him some. I thought he was asking for his baby, which was stupid because, weren’t you listening, M?? Didn’t he just say that their baby doesn’t like bmilk, M??? I should have ignored him, but I just had to ask why.
He’ll drink it, says he. He was serious.
Ummm…errr…buffering again… how about a drink of some weirdness?
He said that milk is very healthy and he genuinely likes the taste. Again, he does have a point. Too each his own, I say, but….
The thought of me drinking my own milk is yucky maybe plainly because I hate milk. But then again, I can tolerate milk if it is mixed with something. Just thinking of putting my milk in my milk tea is just plain ewwww.
The thought of a coworker drinking my milk is just so tremendously off. Why not just put my milk in the pantry so everyone can put it in their espresso??? Why not even serve some during meetings? Yum … talk about a gourmet coffee.
Hey boss, would you like some bmilk in your cafe mocha?
How about if I just work something out with Starbucks so I can be their half and half supplier? Half of the milk from the left and half from the right mamma mammary. Haha.
Had he fanned some paper moolah to my face, it would have been a different story.
$$$ as usual. Hehehe.
