The Lucky Milk
It's a subject that's come up a fair bit with my friends and relatives, but it seems nobody knows about the lucky milk. Nobody but me.

When I open a new bottle of milk, I lick the foil-y bit. Same with yoghurt pots, and cartons of cream. I do it without thinking. It's earned me many a strange look when in the company of my mother or friends. I've been known to walk into the kitchen to help my mum with the tea order, see her opening the milk and whip it out of her hand to lick it. If the foil gets thrown away with the lucky milk still on it, I have an impulse to take it out the bin and lick it. Even if it's been in the bin several hours with a used tea-bag, some cold beans and a clump of cat hair sitting on top of it.

However, I have been able to control this urge, and haven't actually gone so far as to remove said item from the bin and lick it. Yet.

i like how you call it the lucky milk. i feel that way about bread loaf ends. except in my house we call them "the superhero piece" because my older brother made up this fiction that if you ate them you turned into a superhero.
