So she never offered us milk in our tea and coffee.

By the way, congratulations on your upcoming retirement, Lois. May you enjoy every day of it. I loved it when I was gainfully unemployed, but now we need the money.
Did you ever see the movie "The DaVinci Code"? Ian McKellan's character asked Tom Hanks' character, "What goes in Earl Grey tea, milk or lemon?" (It was a test.) And the answer was, "Lemon." So your mom was probably technically correct. But that doesn't stop me from putting milk in it.
