Spoiled Milk

Matthine, an oblong turtle who loved to sing along to Jeopardy, could not bring herself to throw the milk out. The half-gallon of organic 2% had lived in her fridge for three months, and they had established a mutually beneficial arrangement. The milk provided Matthine with dating advice in return for living rent-free on the lowest shelf. However, certain complications had arisen.
