Mother's Milk...

...still wet on your face.

You are a hero, Hans Locher! Don't give up the fight, and DAMN those Swiss food inspectors!

I've been saying for some time now that I'd like to taste mother's milk.

Yes! I'm talking HUMAN mother's milk! Are you...grossed out?

I think I've only watched a handful of Friends episodes, but I once saw one where Ross freaked out when one of the other friends tested the temperature of a baby bottle by splashing a little breast milk on his/her wrist and then licking it off. It was at that moment that I realized that I had not tasted mother's milk since I was a wee little Big Finn. I figured that...

...I gotta get me some!

I'm not really sure why I suddenly got the craving. Perhaps I wanted to see if the taste would trigger a taste memory (like a great bottle of wine) from 40+ years ago. Who knows?

I actually mentioned it to a couple of pregnant friends (naturally, with Mrs. TBF present) of ours over the years, and I was FLATLY rejected. Of course, I explained that I didn't need to taste it directly from the "tap", but I was still banished from getting anywhere near the sacred mommy fun bags.

Wait...

Did I call them mommy fun bags when I asked? Hmmm....maybe that was the problem!

About a year ago, I determined that I had probably blown my last good chance. As I was playing with my two-year-old niece, I suddenly realized that I could have asked my sister for a spoonful and she POSSIBLY would have obliged just to get me off her back. Oh, I can be VERY persistent.

A couple of years too late. What a bummer!

Now, I just read an article on swissinfo that Swiss food inspectors banned a restaurant from serving food containing "human" milk. I would SO have been there.

But, alas, I guess it's not meant to be...

...this time!

* Oh...my...GAWD! I just noticed that the title of the article is: Breast Milk Menu Too Titillating For Diners. Is that...Swiss...humor? OMG! Stop the presses! Swiss humor!!!!!!!
