This is how you remind me of what I really am

SubHub expressed interest in how often I pump*** while at work. "Two times," I replied. Without the slightest shadow of irony or sarcasm, he said, "You know, Israeli cows are milked three times a day. In every other country it's only twice a day, but in Israel it's 3 times!" Long silence ensued. Quite clearly I did not show as much enthusiasm about Israeli agricultural achievements as SubHub had expected. Catching my evil glare, he mumbled, "What? Just thought you would like to know. That's all."

Should've realized (before getting all misty eyed about "Ohh how much he cares") that if a man expresses interest in breastfeeding, let down is imminent. All puns intended.

Oh, and apparently I wouldn't quite fit in with the other Israeli cows. How sad. And here I thought I had something to fall back on if we decided to move. Better stay put, I guess.

*** Express breast milk.


  1. Israeli cows are milked 3 times a day to make up for shabbos and yom tov. Absolutely true, just ask your local rabbi.

  2. I never doubted the truth of the statement. I was took exception to the reason it was made. LOL

    btw, according my sources, Israeli cows are milked on Shabbos and Yom Tov as well.

  3. And that's where holov stam comes from.
