When the milk leaked

I still remember the very day when the milked leaked on me and even now I can smile and chuckle to myself as I sit writing this.

I had gone grocery shopping and had bought my customary bag of milk, a bag containing 3 separate two litre bags of tasty 2% milk. Then, when I came home, I unpacked my bundle buggy and proceeded to put everything away in my fridge, freezer, and pantry. Things had gone according to plan, as always, as everything had been put away in its proper place.

A few hours later I went to my fridge to open one of the bags of milk and upon entering the outer bag I realized that something was not right. The bag was wet and there was liquid at the bottom of the outer bag. Right then, time to investigate so I dipped my finger into the bottom of the bag and withdrew my wet finger, placing it on my tongue.

Bingo! Milk was indeed leaking but now I had to figure out which bag. Problems? You got that right and I had to examine each bag in order to find which one was leaking. No such luck as I could not find any obvious holes and all of the bags were wet. So now what?

I re-examined each bag and chose the one that I thought was leaking and then with the utmost of care I took it to my kitchen sink and emptied it by puncturing it. Matter fixed? Not on your life! Upon returning to the original bag that now contained two bags I discovered that a puddle was fast forming in the bag and it had even begun to spread outside of the bag and on to my kitchen counter! Oops! I punctured the wrong bag!

The rest, as they say, is history and at the end of day I ended up with one out of three bags of milk! Just another day in the life of Donna J. Jodhan.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
