Things for People Who Don't Like Things

Skim Milk?! Blaaagh! Obviously skim milk is for people who don't like milk - it's watery and has a bluish tint - who wants to drink that? Real milk is opaque and . . . white! And when served cold with a slice of chocolate cake or a peanut butter sandwich or warm chocolate chip cookies or over a bowl of crunchy cereal - there's nothing to compare. I'm not proposing we all revert to whole milk, but switch to 1%; it has the look and taste of real milk - because it is.

You can bet Cary Grant wasn't taking Joan Fontaine skim milk in Hitchcock's 1941 classic, Suspicion. After all, skim milk is too watery to hide poison - or, is there poison in the glass? If you haven't seen the movie, I won't spoil the ending here . . . but, if you're a fan of Cary Grant or Joan Fontaine you are in for a treat! As a side note, Fontaine won the best actress Oscar for this role - her sister Olivia de Havilland was also a nominee and this was possibly the beginning of their famous feud. Regardless, Suspicion is a wonderful movie - I haven't seen it in quite a few years, but am going to put it on our Netflix list. In fact, this fall might be a good time to watch all my favorite Hitchcock films again - while nibbling on a warm cookie and drinking a cold glass of milk!
