Cow-a-bunga! Espresso Dave’s Milk Run


Pre-event milk run fun!

“Wow, that’s a lot  of milk! Why don’t you just buy the cow?” says a woman glaring at my shopping cart which is packed with 24 gallons of freshly-dated, low-fat, cold milk. This delightful dairy will supply several Espresso Dave’s Special Coffee carts for the first day of an upcoming trade show at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. This is a typical encounter whenever I buy milk for an event.

Yesterday, after such an encounter, I recruited my teenagers and their friends to develop a list of comeback lines:

Supermarket Shopper says: “Wow, that’s a lot of milk!”
Espresso Dave says:

  1. “So, I eat a lot of cereal.”
  2. “I made too many chocolate chip cookies…”
