Milk: Regular

This morning I had to pick up a few things from the store.
I texted Patrick to ask what the items were since I had forgotten the list.
(He loved this)
So he wrote;

crackers
paper towels
milk regular

Got it!

Or did I?

crackers equals Saltines
Paper towels equals Bounty full sheets
Milk regular means whole milk.

Or does it?

While I was standing in line I wondered, "Does he mean whole milk (for his coffee) or
1% (our daily drinking milk).

Both are used regularly.
Whole milk is regular milk before it is thinned out for skim and 1 % and so on.

What do you think?

What did my husband mean when he said 'regular'?

    I'm going to guess that he meant the 1% for drinking as the regular milk, with the whole milk being a special milk for coffee.

  3. Guessing 1% ! Also I would have just bought both just in case.

  4. I agree with Cheryl - I think "regular" meant "what you regularly buy". The whole milk is special and probably not bought as often.

  5. I would think regular means whole. Regular old milk.

  7. I would buy a half gallon of each to be safe. :)

    I think "regular" means 1% because it's the milk you drink regular-style...all by itself...not mixed with coffee.

    I buy 1% for drinking and whole milk for coffee too but, if I sent my husband to buy milk, he would buy a gallon of 2% because, for some reason, that's always been what he thinks I buy. You would think that after 20 years he would have it figured it out but, nope. He always comes home with 2%. Derp!

  9. I would say regular means whole milk, in my house. The other stuff is irregular!

  10. Whole milk is regular milk in our house...

  11. Guessing he meant 1% as his "normal". Fun game.

    I think he meant that you should buy both kinds of milk in the regular quantities! A pint of one, two gallons of another!!!

  13. I think he meant 1% :)

  14. I think regular means 1%, since you need a fork to drink whole, and that's not normal.

    ;)

  15. I'd say regular means the daily drinking stuff. (Patrick should consider half and half for coffee! It's just the best.)

    I vote with the 1% folks on this one. When we go on vacation my husband has half and half in his coffee. ;-) love and prayers, jep

  17. I'm with Emma and others here - I would buy both. In our markets the organic stuff often has a much longer sell by date and really does last longer without going bad, or my mother-in-law says she has good luck shaking up the milk and then freezing it (in case you bought too much). Speaking of old eyes (what? weren't we?) I read Steph's comment above as "you need a fork to drink wine" and I was soooo confused.

  18. I vote whole milk.

  19. Hmmm, I'm thinking that if you left the list at home, he's reading off the list and you already know what kind of milk you needed to buy because you wrote it on the list.

    1. Tammy, it was a list that HE had written the night before.
      I never know when we are out of milk.
      It's my blindspot.

  20. I would think it's the regular milk that you always drink. But then I would buy both so I wouldn't have to go back.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would think regular would be whole, as that is like the "original" or regular and then 1% is the variation. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I was going to go with cow milk, vs goat milk or almond milk...

  23. Great guessing and thinking friends.

    So....I texted Patrick from the store and asked what regular was. It was 1% milk.
    If he had wanted whole milk, I am sure he would have said whole milk.

    But I bought them both.

    Ta Da.

    Patrick has a big glass of milk with dinner every night.
    And then adds more milk to his cup for dessert. Oreos.

    1. Mmmmm ... Oreos. I miss 'em.

  24. Ah, Oreos ... if God created anything better than Oreos and strawberry shortcake ... He kept it for Himself .....

  25. Regular = to drink, not for coffee. (In a man's mind) ;)

  26. Aha! Mystery solved! And hopefully your memory is better than mine and next time you'll know exactly what to pick up!
