“Why don’t you buy whole milk?”

“It’s got too much fat.”

“Uh huh.”

“Is something wrong?”

“No. I’m just watching you fix your cereal. Watching and wondering.”

“You’re staring …”

“Yeah … well, why do you buy the one percent?”

“I don’t like skim. And two percent has almost as much fat as whole milk. I read about how misleading that is.”

“… and the half and half?”

“That’s for my coffee. I hate one percent milk in coffee. Ew.”

“But you just poured half and half over the one percent you put on your cereal.”

“Well, yeah. It makes it taste better.”
