Lord have mercy.
This was going to be one of those conversations.
You have to drink the milk, Simon.
I think the word you’re looking for is should drink the milk.
OK wise guy. You should drink the milk.
Should. Milk is a whole food. It’s good for you.
Hmm, says here that A whole food, is a natural food that has not been processed or has been refined as little as possible. This milk is pasteurized. Not a whole food.
I meant that it’s a complete food. And don’t start reading out that definition.
Well, if its so complete then why did they have to enrich it with Probiotic and Vitamin D, E and K2, drones his machine-imitation voice.
I’m trapped in a maelstrom of irritation, frustration, pride. I see the twinkle in his eye. He thinks that he’s won the argument.
I play the trump card.
Then will you please drink it cause it would make mommy really really happy?
The twinkle dims a little.
