I've always been a skim girl. (No, not "skinny" girl. Skim girl.)
Mike's always been a 2 percent guy.
And this was cause for our first and worst fight as a married couple.
Yes, you read that right. We fought over milk.
We're deep like that.
As Mike and I were discussing which milk "grade" to purchase, it wasn't an issue of what we would drink now - because we know we could have just bought both - it was an issue of what "family standard" we will set for our children.
And their children.
And their chidren's children.
We were essentially setting a standard for every generation of little Mike and Laura's to come.
See? It was a big deal.
Mike wanted 2 percent kids and I wanted skim kids.
The fight went on for days, weeks really. We knew it was crazy - but it was important to both of us that our children grow up drinking our preferred milk of choice.
So now we drink 1 percent.
And we both hate it.
But we're unified. Isn't that what marriage is all about?*
*Of course, it's just one of the ten billion, no ten zillion things marriage is all about.
