Have you ever heard the phrase “There’s no use in crying over spilled milk”? In this case, there certainly is.
One of my middle school teachers had a “puzzle area” in her room full of little puzzles. She had the horseshoes with the removable ring, a couple of Rubik’s Cubes, and several jigsaw puzzles. This is one of the ones I remember working on after finishing my daily reading assignments.
Spilt Milk was a jigsaw puzzle that came with 300 completely white jigsaw pieces. Without any straight edge pieces or patterns on the pieces, Spilt Milk was a very difficult puzzle to complete. One cool thing I always liked about the puzzle was that it came in a box shaped like a milk carton.
Whoever said there’s no use in crying over spilled/spilt milk never worked on this puzzle. I remember crying a lot while working on it, in fact. I am not particularly good at jigsaw puzzles and I found this one particularly infuriating.
Although I remember working on this pizzle back in the mid-1980s, it appears that it is still available in stores and online today. It appears the manufacturers are “milking” this one for all it’s worth.
