The yellow

Yesterday, I was making instant coffee as K was clearing the fridge in the kitchen. I "excuse me" to her and K said, "Oh! You want to take your milk?". I took out a bowl with yellow fluid, opened it, and sniffed.

Mmm! Smells nice.

I had intended to throw away the contents because it had been in the fridge for over a week. I asked K to smell it.

Me: Smells nice, doesn't it?

K looked at me in horror.

K: How come your milk is this colour, consistency, and has meat inside?!

I was bewildered. I had asked her to smell my leftover canned soup.
