Opal doesn’t want to be a widow THAT badly, Earl.
Many others did those things and died.Nobody ever died from drinking sour milk.
If you keep your frig cold enough, don’t let it sit on the counter when it’s not being used, it can last a couple of weeks past the date, which is actually a ‘sell-by’ date. I’ve gone past 2 weeks lots of times.
I drink so little milk that this isn’t a problem for me; just buy the eight-ounce bottles to use on breakfast cereal and you can keep them at room temperature until a day or so before you plan to use them..Bread, on the other hand, turns moldy before you can get it home from the store unless you manage to make all the lights.
not a 3rd world problem.
Perhaps Earl should have wore that bicycle helmet after all.
Make it into buttermilk and freeze it for baking biscuits or pancakes.
Danger, danger everywhere! It’s amazing that there are any elderly people on the planet at all!
If the milk still smells okay, then it’s still good.
Earl rode a bike without a helmet? That explains a few things.
Milk would taste bad, but yogurt past its due date is no problem whatsoever.
Drank water right out of the hose and chewed on my crib with lead paint…
Earl likes to live on the edge!
My wife will throw away carrots that are past their “best by” date. Carrots.
Same thing we do with alcohol. Like Roto-Rooter®, “awaygoes trouble down the drain”.
swimming in a creek/river by myselfno smoke detectors in my home no seat belts in the car at allriding bikes all over the place w/o helmets OR adultsrunning with scissors AND fallingchugging sour milk – yep, did that too-oh the memories for me that you bring up Earleither the saying ‘ignorance is bliss’ is trueor maybe we have sooo much fear in our lives today we somehow think that by being over protecting and legislative we will avoid tragedy and make everything okay.i am all for common sense and knowing facts – but i am somewhat reserved about thinking we have to force everybody to be protected against everything that might happen. and how do you do that anyway?-
I hate seatbelts. It’s utterly pointless to have them in the passenger seats. Every time I’m forced to wear one, I feel suffocated.
Honestly, Earl. Milk really doesn’t taste very good beyond the “use by” date. Not even one day beyond it.
Earl should check the bottom of his feet. When the skin gets thin enough, the expiration date shows.
If everyone thought like Opal no one would ever have invented yoghurt.
Hey, Earl, I did all those things too, and managed to stay alive. We played in the street, skinny dipped in the creek and much more. The only rule was to come home when the streetlights came on,
If milk has “gone bad” (as long as it has not separated into solid and liquid layers), it is still useful for chocolate cake, queso blanco, etc..wiatrI was standing there, surveying the damage, when the paramedics arrived. Their first words were, “At least you were wearing your seat belt.” I asked, “How did you know; I am not even in my car?” “Because you are standing there.” I put belts in my first car, even before they were dealer options. John Paul Stapp was a rocket sled subject and expert on acceleration. He modified parachute harnesses for all seats on his station wagon. I figured that if he went to that trouble in the early 1950s, I should at least have a lap belt (shoulder harnesses were in the future then).
