“The Milkman” by Birdie D. Stringfellow


Mama, why are you crying? Is there no milk for our cereal this morning? What happened to the milkman? He always comes and delivers his goods by now. I don't mind eating my cereal dry! I like my food crunchy. Sometimes the milk makes my breakfast soggy. Did you know that? Mama, please don't cry!

Mama, why do people say I favor the milkman? What on earth do they mean? Am I not as nice to the postman as I am to the milkman?
