The incomparable cookie companion

* When this simple miracle first appeared at CWRU in the spring of 2004, the caption was "Ahhhhhhh!" That's the usual sound after the glass is empty, isn't it?
* My housemate Dan could probably tell you a familiar story: At about 11 PM, I'll appear in our living room. He'll be reading a book. I'll declare to him, "Do you know what time it is?" He doesn't know. "It's time for a tall glass of milk!" Then I bounce with excitement into the kitchen.
* In college, my good friend Lowell and I decided that we would like to be the kind of guys that weren't afraid to go to a bar and, rather than order a glass of beer, order a glass of milk. I have tried this, but unfortunately most bars do not have milk.
* Now that it is the Easter season, there is another treat to which milk is a very good companion. Here's what I do: Eat a mug of ice cream, then fill the empty mug with milk to rinse out any ice cream that is left and drink it.
* In fact, to how many dishes is milk "an incomparable companion"? I can think of turkey sandwiches, peanut butter, graham crackers, mashed potatoes, steak, a hearty piece of wheat bread and a slice of cheese ...
* Interestingly, I do not like milk with my cereal. Instead, I prefer to eat it dry.
