What with everything else that expired on that date – most notably for me, my sense that Americans are impervious to such acts of war on their own home soil – I just couldn’t bring myself to buy something with a 9/11 expiration date.
One part of me feels like it was silly, but the overwhelming majority of me agrees with the decision and thinks the milk bottling people are going to experience a high number of unsold 1/2 gallons this week.
Has anyone else done anything similar with regard to 9/11? Would you fly on 9/11, or get married or schedule surgery on that date? Have you rescheduled or rearranged something because it would have fallen on 9/11?
Would you have bought the milk?
