NOT Milk?

Friday, February 10, 2006

In my last post about my (somehow surprising) discovery that carrot juice tastes like carrots, my friend Vicki responded thus:

"I drank tomato juice once, thinking it was Kool-Aid. THAT was a big disappointment."

Which is funny to me. Thanks for the laugh, Vicki! And thanks for also reminding me of another time when I almost drank something that could have probably killed me. [edited to chastize self: "could have" and "probably" are redundant, dummy!]

My sister Kim once brought me a glass of milk, out of the blue. We were in our young teens, and I thought it quite strange, but accepted the gesture. As I tilted the glass to drink it, something smelled wrong, and the liquid moved rather slowly. I pulled it away from my mouth and looked at the substance in the glass, which was moving slower than white molasses. was Elmer's Glue. Yes, my sister filled a glass with glue and tried to see if I would drink it!

Let's just say, we're BOTH lucky to be alive (because I could have killed her for that).

So, just in case you didn't know: Elmer's Glue is NOT Milk. Don't drink it! Yer welcome.
