I was out to eat with a cute guy at a diner. He suggested we share a milkshake, which seemed romantic - except, for me, milkshakes were stomach assassins. I didn't know why, so I had simply avoided them. Now, though, I was confronted with my digestive nemesis.
"I can't drink them," I confessed. "They make me feel awful."
"Maybe you're lactose intolerant," he said. He slid a small white packet across the table. "Try this."
I glanced at the Lactaid label and looked at him to make sure he took a tablet first. After seeing it was safe, I opened the packet and placed the tablet in my mouth. Half an hour later, the milkshake was gone, and my stomach had no complaints. I bought a box and have had a pleasant journey through countless dairy escapades since.
As for the guy? We've been married 10 years now.
