Do You Drink Milk – Kid Home Theatre

29 November, 2009 at 15:37 1 comment

In Sakshi Funday (newspaper supplment on Sunday) of today, I found this readers digest story (translated after the fold) very similar to one I heard about a nephew of mine a while ago that made me chuckle. I guess this happens a lot of kids getting a 3rd party opinion if drinking milk and its many products is of any real use…

Story goes that my nephew absolutely hated milk and any of its sidekicks like yogurt, buttermilk and horrors, even ice-cream. As any parents would do, they would tell him that drinking milk would make him strong and excel in sports and studies. But this was of no avail because both parents were not smart nor athletic at all. The kid just could not make the connection. One day, an LPG cylinder guy came to the house and he was quite simply the strongest guy the kid has ever seen because he was moving the cylinders like toys. Visibly impressed, the kid hounded the worker and finally mustered the courage to ask him, “Uncle, do you drink milk?”. The guy was bemused and not knowing what to say, looked around only to find us as surprised as him, if not more so. Finally, he answered in the affirmative. The kid immediately ran to the mother and asked for milk and has never complained of it in the many years since. Mothers can be great inventors of necessitating milk but most of the times, I suppose, kids are greater discoverers of positive effects of milk.
