Odd Bumper Stickers – I MAKE MILK WHAT’S YOUR SUPERPOWER – Hmmmm
Driving around today...I was following a vehicle that had a bumper sticker that insinuated that the 'mom' on board donated breast milk. I smiled and thought 'how sweet'. I once required donated breast milk for one of my children. It's a noble thing to do. And certainly can be hard for a mother to come to terms that she, herself, can't produce milk for her baby. But, what I read next made my jaw drop!
On the same vehicle was a sticker that read 'I MAKE MILK WHAT'S YOUR SUPERPOWER'. I found myself, sort of, at a standstill. Kinda dumbfounded. Is the act of producing such a bodily fluid actually classified as a 'superpower'? Millions of women lactate everyday. How is your ability to do so classify you to be so powerful? Perhaps, it's because you donate milk to mother's having a difficult time breastfeeding their baby. But then, isn't this sticker, sort of, a slap in the good ol' milk bubbles? Like to say 'Hey, I can feed your baby and you can not'.
To obtain 'superhero' status or to be blessed with such skill and talent, shouldn't you be able to have X-Ray vision? Defend the Galaxy? Leap tall buildings in a single bound Balance a check book?
But, sometimes leaky nipples aren't a good thing. It could, in fact, be an indicator for bigger problems...even cancer. Maybe this sticker could confuse a fellow reader who might think 'Oh...this isn't a cause for concern...this is a superpower'. Someones life could be in jeopardy. OK OK...that's a little far fetched...I HOPE!
I will say, kudos to you for donating to those who need it. I've been on the receiving end of such generosity...and I just realized how that sounds...but nonetheless, I'm incredibly grateful for the gift. Do, I classify my boo-boo juice producing giver as having a superpower? Not exactly. Go grocery shopping with 6 kids...then we'll talk.
I know, I know...everyone has to gripe and complain about something...look at me go!
