I am still carrying on with my idea of interviewing all of you at the same time so we can get to know each other better. Today’s question might not seem that crazy to you, depending on where and how you live, but as usual, I have a reason for asking.
Have you ever milked a cow?
The reason I ask is that a few years back, we were at the county fair, and I had a chance to do it and I chickened out. Partly it was because I am shy and I didn’t want a bunch of strangers watching me touch another mammal’s boobs. But it is weirder than that.
Those few of you who have bought and read my first comedy/adventure science fiction book from the series might remember that one of the first silly parts I threw in, at the end of chapter one I believe, was a theory that the hero had about how aliens had never visited our planet because the whole universe knew that keeping mammals or mammal-like animals hostage and stealing their milk was sick and wrong… and then it turns out that even though that isn’t why they hadn’t visited us yet, they almost all did in fact believe that milk stealing was sick and wrong. I mean, if you are female, or even if you are just a male who knows some females, how would you feel if you or they were abducted by some other species and kept in a barn, and once each morning someone came and milked them… or you… without so much as asking?
