"What's today?"
"I don't know. Probably a crappy one."
Marietta obviously didn't think that warranted a response, so she shook the milk jug a few times and pretended not to hear him. "If it's the fourteenth, the milk is bad, and I wanted cereal. Is it the fourteenth? I really wanted cereal."
"Marietta, the milk doesn't magically turn to curdled goo at the stroke of midnight of the sell by date. That's why it says sell by and not drink by."
"Yeah, and you'd down it if it was a week from now and said chew by."
This is a conversation about milk, and not a conversation about ending sentences in prepositions or the blatantly incorrect use of italics.

"That's why it says sell by and not drink by."

What if it says "best before _____?"

Great little snippet! :)
