CCC#57: Proper Milk

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #57

“Jim, pull over,” Joyce shouted as if Jim was away in a field and not at the wheel beside her.

Jim ignored her and drove on.

“Turn around, turn around,” she demanded, grown aggressively agitated.

Jim sighed. “I’ll turn if and when I find a place for turning. These country roads aren’t made for driving. And what’s the fuss with you anyway?”

“That sign back there… didn’t you see it?”

“Sure, there’s a stately house up ahead.”

“No. PROPER milk. We haven’t had proper milk since the Greys landed and did those foul things to the cows.”

    I love it. I haven’t had proper milk in 40-some years, since my aunt got rid of her cow…

    I still don’t know what the Grey’s did but I’m not sure I want to 😊 Anyways a great take on your prompt! I’m supposed to be lactose intolerant, according to blood test I had. But I do love milk!

    Crispina this is great! I’ve never heard the term “Proper Milk” even though I watch British programming! 😀 What does that term mean? 😀 ❤

    • What indeed. I didn’t know until earlier today with Joanna asked if this meant unpastuerised milk. I didn’t think it was legal to sell, but in England, yes it is, but it must be direct to the customer, thus at a farm shop.

        Due to A1 protein Casein etc raising cholesterol levels I went to Goat Milk awhile back and it helped a lot as it has many benefits including only A2 protein. But , now we have a company which offers A2 milk from cows which naturally produce only that…so that’s what I put in my coffee these days. The Goat Milk people priced me out. So I am not even sure what proper milk is…but as long as its unadulterated out of the cow, goat, sheep etc then I guess that is proper.

      • Proper milk is unpastuerised.
        Personally, I don’t have milk of any kind. Except in the form of yoghurt, butter and cream


  9. I. love. this. Proper milk indeed. And ugh – those Greys. 😉

    This is a lot funnier after your earlier explanation of what “proper” milk really is — nice twist!

  12. Are “The Greys” an English UFO legend?
