Unusual Fact About Me

I consume on average 5 gallons of milk every seven days. That’s approximately ¾ of a gallon daily. This is about 15% of my total grocery bill. Of the 4500 calories that I intake on a daily basis, about 1200 of it is from milk (over 25%.)

I frequently tell people that I don’t know how I would live if I ever became lactose intolerant. Most of the time I get a snide little chuckle in return… but I think that’s because people just don’t realize how much milk I really do consume. It’s a ridiculous amount!

My mom and my sister Kristy were making fun of me the other day when I stopped by to visit after being at the gym, and I drank nearly ½ a gallon of milk in less than a 2 hour span of time. Hell, I can’t help it! That’s what my body wants!

I recently found that it’s recommend that people drink 250ml (.06 gallons) of milk each day. I drink 1250% of that recommended value!

Frank...dude, I totally LOVE milk...although I don't drink nearly that much. I probably average about a gallon a week.

Hmmmm...I used to drink milk every day when I was younger, but now...I just don't like drinking milk any more. Don't know why.

Love the milk. It's filling and refreshing at the same time. Goes especially well with chocolate chip cookies.

Bobby - You drink about twice as much as the average American.

Elemmaciltur - I know of a lot of people who are the same way... they loved milk as a child, and then stopped as they grew. Weird!

Celtgirl - Peanut butter cookies, chocolate cake, candy bar... wtf! It's refreshing all the time!!! (Except when you're really thristy after working out... milk is no good then!)

I drink hardly any milk, I can deal with it on cereal or in tea, but if I sit down and drink a full glass of it then my windpipe gets all cloggy and I get stomach cramps.

In other news. The present arrived today, thank you, I shall write to you.

Yeah, that's not very unusual for most people. I hear that all the time.

Glad it made it there. Pretty weird, huh?! :-P

Thinking about it... You're daily milk intake is probably equivalent to my daily alcohol intake...

What kind of liquor would that be?
