January 22, 2010Preliminary Interview with Dad
Kathleen: What's going to happen to the farm once you decide to retire. Especially since our family will no longer be a farming one.
Dad: Oh, I don't know.
Kathleen: What do you mean? Wait--do you think one of us (my two sisters and I) will take it over? Seriously?
Dad: Well, who knows.
Kathleen: Dad, you honestly think one of us might swoop in a save our family livelihood? Well, okay, fine but I'm turning it back into a dairy farm. [laughs] How much would that cost---uh, nevermind cost. But it's going to be organic milk sold locally. There's gotta be a market for that right? And we can name it something....well, what would you call it?
Dad: Fa Milk.
Kathleen: Why Fa Milk? How do you spell that? F-A-H or F-A--
Dad: F-A. Fa Milk. So when you go out you can say, "I'm going out FA MILK!".
Kathleen: I'm not sure I get it.
Dad: You know, Fa Milk. For milk. Going out FOR milk. Fa Milk.
Kathleen: Uh...maybe....well, we'll see.
I found this exchange quite hilarious. And note, it's not word for word. This is the best my memory can do unfortunately.
