Fortuantely, the Milk (YA)
Book #99 Read in 2013
Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman (YA)
This was a cute, quick read. A mother leaves her family for a few days, giving the father a list of things to remember, including buying milk. The next day's breakfast comes up short for the children as there is no milk. The father says he will go and buy some. He is gone for a long time and comes home with an incredible story for why it took him so long which includes aliens, time travel and vampires. He describes in vivid detail the struggles he overcame to come home with the milk safely.
