Umm, if someone goes and leaves a little bit of milk in the milk bag, and there is not enough for my bowl of cereal, I absolutely will not drink milk from two different milk bags in my cereal. I will have toast or something else instead to avoid having two different bags of cereal put in my milk. Weird, huh?
I always put the toilet seat down after I go to the bathroom. I am the only one in my entire household who does. It drives me crazy LOL.

I think the milk bags must be specific to certain parts of Canada because we don't have them here either!

Although I have heard of them when some professional eater drank a bag of milk on his audition for Canada's Got Talent a couple weeks ago....LOL!

Bag of milk. That makes me laugh. Is it just an Ontario thing Julie? Or an East thing?

ETA: Did some googling. Apparently it is an Ontario thing, and usually available on the East coast of Canada as well. We all learn something new!

I have several CA friends who get milk from the bag, as they all thought it was odd to move here and get milk from a box Lol

I am the same way I don't like milk from 2 seperate containers.

LOL! Our milk comes in bags, we get 3 little bags in a pack, which is 4L. But, whenever we go across the border to the US, we buy milk jugs at Sam's Club. So much cheaper!! We pay $5.49-$6.00 for 4L of milk (3.25%), but get a gallon across the border for $3 something. To be honest, I like the taste of American milk too... and cheese is way cheaper in the US too! Smile
