Awesome! I love that! I also needed a good laugh today. I need to keep reminding myself of that. It works the other way too.

I’ve had that line used twice on me. Both times I came back with

“Oh, honey, this “milk” ain’t even CLOSE to free!”

They were both older aunts/great aunts and just stared at me in embarassment.

@goodasitgets:  i had an ex who asked me what he could do to get me back. I started to tell him and he must not have liked what I had to say so he said “wait a second, I’m not listening to this, this is getting the cow without the milk.” He thought that was real clever but he didn’t end up getting the cow back.

Turn it around

“I’m choosing to marry him because he is an intelligent, interesting person. The fact that he gives me his milk doesn’t alter this fact.”

i just reminded myself of a bee in here (sorry, don’t remember the nickname) who made wedding RSVP’s saying “MM/DD/YY we’re buying the cow”. that’s a really cute response to all the people who use that stupid ass phrase.
