Kids Crack Me Up – 104 Year Old Milk!

Published by on

Lately, we’ve had a lot of milk go sour, LONG before the expiration date. In fact, it has happened so often, the kids do a thorough inspection now before daring to douse their beloved cereal in potentially ‘rotten’ milk. Generally, Lizzy does the inspections, you know because she’s older and more qualified to sniff cartons and read expiry dates. Today Sam did the honors.

Sam: “Dad, I think this milk might be bad. It’s really old.”

Mr. MK: “I just bought it. How old is it?”

Sam: “It says, 1904 Dad!” – he points @ the carton.

I think this milk is bad

Mr. MK: *chuckle, chuckle* “Uh, that’s the year the company was started son, the milk is fine, it’s safe to eat your cereal.”

BWAHAHAHA … kids are so funny!

That’s too funny. I can relate to the bad milk – I made my parents check it all the time when I was a kid!

Jenny M · January 22, 2008 at 9:24 pm

Oh my gosh- milk is the one thing that I think makes the household stop if we are out- anything else- I think I can find a substitute for.

Colleen · January 22, 2008 at 9:35 pm

I used to smell all the milk and bread before I’d eat when I was a kid also. I could tell when something was going to turn before anyone else could.

Sheena · January 22, 2008 at 11:32 pm

Sam’s one funny little boy! If the milk has reached the sell by date, I WILL NOT drink it! It’s a phobia I have, lol.

I have been having serious issues with my soya milk going bad before the expiry date. Sometimes, it would appear as though chunks of “tofu” start developing in the milk. Quite gross. Especially on Shredded Wheat!

Andrea · January 23, 2008 at 8:24 am

haha…too funny! I would be scared if you had something in your fridge from 1904! haha. :)

I miss the age that your children are. They still say very humorous things! Cindi

Aimee · January 23, 2008 at 10:46 am

Can’t wait for my little one to do the sniff tests for us. Being pregnant and sniff testing the milk has not been a fun task lately. Thanks for the great post.

sara · January 23, 2008 at 2:03 pm

Too funny…I’m a sniffer too!

Laura · January 23, 2008 at 6:03 pm

I hate *hate* HATE ruining my bowl of cereal with bad, chunky milk… so Sam — I don’t blame you for being cautious!

Michelle · January 23, 2008 at 6:29 pm

YEW! Nothing worth than chunky milk that goes plop coming out of the jug!

heather h · January 23, 2008 at 6:49 pm

Blech. The first day of school in third grade I had a container of rotten milk on my lunch tray. Gross. I was so embarrassed to be in a new school where I didn’t know anyone that I didn’t take it to the lunch lady for an exchange. I can’t tell you how nasty the one and only taste of spoiled milk I’ve had was. Horror!
