Notes on pace

March was our most prolific month of consumption with 24 gallons purchased (more than 3 quarts of milk per day). This can be attributed to me being around 4 of the 5 weekends and no spring break to thwart our quest.

It was more than twice the number we drank in February (10). This means, with only one month left, we are accelerating toward the finish line.


Whenever Jeremy or I returns home after a milk purchase we summon the other to help lug the milk up the stairs. These are normally joyous occasions of camaraderie, but today the joy was destroyed.

As I approached Jeremy's car, ready to provide assistance, I found him with a sheepish look on his face. "What kind of sad event could be eating into what is normally such a stellar occasion?" I wondered to myself. As I came nearer Jeremy revealed to me the source of his shame. From the back seat of his car he lifted a single gallon of SKIM MILK white coloured water!

As he lifted the gallon into view he ashamedly mumbled something about "being whipped" and maybe something about "the ball and chain," but my horror was so great that I remember little else of his explanation. You'll have to ask him to explain. My outrage is so great that I cannot even bring myself to ask for more detail.

UPDATE: Needless to say, this gallon will not count toward our totals. Neither he nor I will be partaking of this sub-par liquid.

The arrival of Bell's Oberon to store shelves this week may put a dent in our Milk consumption.

Bad news: I accidentally left a half-full gallon in my room for a day when I left for work. My unbelievable tiredness in the morning easily explains this oversight.

Good news: This neutralizes the annoying half gallon count and brings us back to a whole number.

We have some ideas for upcoming content, including an analysis of how each of us manage to drink so much milk and what we use it for.

This entry is predated since I bought this one to hold us over for the weekend, and then promptly left town. You can see it has been entirely consumed, leaving behind its husk which I tossed in the air like a cat toys with its prey.

When I got home from shopping, Jeremy was already asleep.

Early to bed, Early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise. That and lots of good wholesome milk.

Spring Break and weekend departures have slowed our pace for now, but not to worry.

Those who drink milk will be champions.
