The inspiration for “Cow’s Milk” came around the
kitchen table, years ago, when our children were younger. It went something like this:
I was introducing a new dish to our regular dinner fare. The kids looked at me appalled.
“Who wants to try that!” Josh
said in disgust.
“Well,” I said, stalling for time while I tried to think up an answer
to that comment. “Someone had to
be the first to try the unusual, otherwise our diet would be pretty bland.”
They looked at me, not quite sure what to think, but said nothing.
I looked at the table for something familiar to use as an example.
“Take milk for instance. What
do you suppose the first kids to drink cow’s milk thought when they found out
where it came from?”
My kids looked at each other, wrinkled their noses as they looked at
their glasses of milk in a new light. “That
would be strange.” Jasmine
finally said, still looking at her milk like she wasn’t sure she’d ever
drink it again.
“Exactly!” I replied.
I looked around the table at the expressions on my children’s faces as
they stared at their glasses of milk. I
ran to get my notebook and pen. I
had an idea and “Cow’s Milk” was born.
