The Good Old Days

Beneath the clouds, bottles of milk sit on porches waiting to be taken inside. Fresh whole milk people use in their tea or coffee to give it that special hint of flavor, or a mother pouring it in her child’s bowl of cereal to give it that subtle crunch. Some prefer heating it on the stove or in a large glass, to gulp down, so that it cools the stomach when it hits bottom. These days are long gone. No more milk trucks dropping off bottles.

Only cartons and plastic containers in the nearest store.
