The Day the Kefir Died
If you've never heard of Kefir, I'm not going to judge you. You're probably going to be okay. I have dabbled in it, but never regularly. And today, after keeping these kefir grains alive for a year, I fear they are dead. I left them in the refrigerator too long without changing their milk (which is to kefir what Guinness is to the Irish, and the umbilical cord is to the fetus). We called 911, but there was no reviving them. They are just little white squishy shells of their former self. I keep telling myself "It's okay, it's not your fault (but it is), they're in a better place", but its not helping. I think I am just going to have to grieve.
