To help a friend lose weight, I told her that she should switch to lower-fat foods, including skim milk.
When she said her family would drink only whole milk, I suggested that she keep their regular container and refill it with skim milk.
This worked for quite a while, until her daughter asked one morning whether the milk was okay.
â€œSure, itâ€™s fine,â€ my friend answered, fearing she had been found out. â€œWhy do you ask?â€
The daughter explained, â€œWell, according to the expiration date, this milk expired two years ago!â€
