Well, at least you can taste. Something has happened to my ability to taste, and I suppose that's a side-effect of some medication I'm taking of late. It's been decided, by those doctors in charge, that my headaches and other little annoyances are called migraines. So, that's easier to take than other diagnosis
that scared the shat out of me. I guess there are many kinds of migraine headache and mine is caused by the weather.
It's not actually that I can't taste, but that there is this constant awful taste, sorta like a chemical taste, or metalic. Dreadful. Can't say which is worse, eating all the time, or not eating because food doesn't taste right. Except ice cream, jello, that still tastes great.
But, with these little tiny magic pills my headaches never occur. And, that's amazing. I sleep like a baby, also. Wonder what's in them, probably arsenic or rat poison. Ha ha ha, that's funny but some medications contain those in very small doses.
About the milk, I wouldn't keep it more than a week, maybe a few days, or get two smaller bottles instead of the qt. size. Buttermilk, the same. I like lactose's creaminess. I'll think about you, Osso, when I can't taste and you can't smell.
