Kelly and Michael: Why Do We Buy Bread and Milk?
Why do we buy bread and milk before severe winter weather? Kelly Ripa wondered what the reason could be, and someone in the audience said that is because it is filling. Michael Strahan said that peanut butter and jelly would be a better way to go.
However, according to a news story, Kelly said this habit has been traced back to 1978, when a monumental storm trapped homes without power for weeks, leading them to begin stocking up on bread and milk for the future.
Kelly recalled a major snowstorm during her childhood. Her father was in the midst of a streak of wins for holiday light decoration, and her mother sent the kids outside to wrap up the baby Jesus, because it looked cold.

Kelly and Michael: Workplace Romance
Valentine’s Day is February 14. Kelly said that more people seem to be finding romance with co-workers. “There’s no hooking up in this place, but we work short hours,” Michael said.
“We work those morning hours where everybody is at their absolute craziest,” Kelly agreed. This has led to new rules at some companies. Check your handbook, however, because you could be skirting the line between dating and harassment.
Also, for some reason people have to be reminded that you are not supposed to spend company time, money, and resources on your relationship. Have you ever dated someone that you worked with?
