En agua o en leche?

I've read "in water or in milk?" will be a common phrase in Central America. I'll be opting for the latter.

Milk and Mucus

Due to an untimely cold I've been a congested mess - coughing fits and no voice. I was always under the impression that drinking milk would make my condition worse but here's another myth dispelled. I visited UHS, and I was given an albuterol inhaler and told to take Robitussin DM. Let's keep our fingers crossed...

Crying over (spilled) milk

My sister easily has half an inch on me, and I think it's due in part to milk. Growing up my parents forced us to drink a glass of milk every night. My sister and I would stare at those glasses hoping that they would topple over, and when they did, which wasn't often enough, we would cry, blaming the other for the soggy mess. I swear my sister used her "older sister powers" to make the milk spill. The Flintstones vitamins incident, on the other hand, well, it's debatable who's the mastermind behind that one.

Milk does a Body Good

In the 7th grade I broke my wrist playing matball. For those who are unfamiliar, it's essentially indoor kickdoor and the mats (bases) sit on the four corners of the gym. I was running from 3rd to 4th base, and I put my hand up against the wall to stop myself (yes, I broke my wrist running into a gym wall). Unfortunately I wasn't smart enough to break my left wrist, so I could be a sloppy writer for the month I had to wear a cast. I recently found the blue cast in my parents' garage when I was back home in August.

Milk doesn't do much for bruises. I was playing volleyball on Thursday against the gym wall (note the track record) at the CCRB, and only a few hours later did I have these bruises.

Let the Games begin

As a nascent blogger, this is my first...I will be discussing a variety of topics as I venture from graduate school back into the professional arena. I have spent the last 17 months in Southeast Michigan, and I'm ready to return to my roots, the Deep South, to begin my career.

Regarding the name of the blog: I love milk although I am lactose intolerant. I rarely start the day without a glass of milk, and this is limited to only one glass due to my body's inability to digest the dairy enzymes. Why don't I drink soy or lactose-free milk? Simple answer:
It's just not the same.
