“The milk’s gone bad! I put it back in the refrigerator. You’d better check it before you drink it.”
”Why didn’t you pour it out? I’m not going to drink bad milk!”
”Well, just check it. I could be wrong. It just smelled bad whe I tried to drink it. I thought you might use it for cooking.”
”You can tell as well as I can if milk is bad. I don’t want to cook with it. Just”…..bang. Bud went on out the back door without getting rid of the milk.
The next day he came through with another freshness update. “An apple in the fruit bowl is bad.?”
”Did you throw it out?”
”No, I thought you might cook something with it.”
”I never cook with bad milk and rotten apples. I don’t cook maggots or flies either. Throw it out!”
”I don’t have time. I have stuff to do in the shop.” He rooked the dogs and walked right by the rotten apple and the trash. Does anybody have a recipe that calls for bad milk and a rotten apple? I need to cook something special.
