Hello again iiwiiers
I forgot to tell you last time that I'd bought some goat's milk. It was reduced, to thirty-five pence for the litre. It was a good deal, but that's not what compelled me to buy it. Oh no. Anthony Worrall Thompson was on the box. "Find out why my family drink goats' milk! See reverse of carton for details." Intriguing, huh? We've got to go to the other side of the carton, haven't we? Okay, here we go. "Until she was three and a half, my daughter had a runny nose and ear infections and was constantly wheezing and coughing. Then I read a study highlighting that two-thirds of infants have a cows' milk allergy. I tried her on goats' milk. Within two days the runny nose had cleared up. A great relief!" Aww... what a heart-warming story, what a great father he is. A pity that the daughter was never on her mother's milk, or she'd have been spared the runny nose, ear infections and constant wheezing and coughing for the beginning part of the first three and a half years of her life. But there was probably a very good reason for that, I'm not judging anyone. Some mothers can't be bothered, and there's no shame in that, it's an individual choice thing, or maybe she was in an accident. And given that the study highlighted that two-thirds of infants have a cows' milk allergy, but most adults don't, and that only read one study, perhaps a little strange to switch the whole family to goats' milk, so far into his daughter's infancy, just before she could develop a tolerance to cows' milk. But I'm sure he knew what he was doing. After all, he's a chef. But all this is by the by. What really intrigued me what the photograph they used to illustrate this story. They used different details of the photograph on the front and the back, and I could not find one on the internet, so I had to take the pictures from the carton, so I present both, from the front and back respectively:
Fucking hell!!!! What must the mother look like! I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not having a go, I'm sure she's a lovely girl - but, I mean, Anthony Worrall Thompson is a human, it's generally thought, I've never heard any suggestion to the contrary that wasn't supposed to be funny (nor one that was actually funny, but that's not relevant) so if he's the father and he's human what must the mother be if his daughter looks like that? I'm not trying to be cruel, or funny, but I can't help pointing out the incredible irony - she looks a lot like a goat! I thought goats were produced by two goat parents, not a human and x. So maybe he's a goat and so's the mother, or maybe he's a human and he's some sort of creature that is the opposite of a goat from a human (that's how it works) or maybe the girl isn't a goat at all but something else, then it gets too complicated for me to go into all the permutations. But if anyone reading this has ever had Anthony Worrall Thompson making a pass at them, please send my a picture of yourself so I can see what sort of thing he goes for. Thank you.
See you around
