Never Have I Ever…

MILKED A COW

Seriously, do only female cows produce milk?

Yes.

Well, I don’t think your average woman knows that…it’s kind of a “need to know” bit of information that I don’t need to know.

Didn’t you grow up with cows? My grandparents had a farm where we milked cows.

Nope. They Texans? My grandparents were teachers and salesmen and housewives. 2 had college degrees and 2 didn’t. The ones who didn’t had two children who didn’t, one of whom was my mother.

My other grandparents were middle-class but educated, and my father was an only child. He grew up in Odessa, Texas and became a lawyer. So I’m an 8th generation Texan on both sides, including one generation of 12 full-lived siblings, and I don’t remember ever milking a cow.

We used to go out to the “ranch” to “count the cows,” but that’s because they were Burgers on Hooves (is that what they’re called?). Honestly, I think I know more about horses. And I don’t know much about them either.
