I like to make my Milo piping hot. So I pour freshly boiled water to 5 scoops of Milo till the brim. Sometimes, I will just fill up about 9/10 piping hot water, then stir it quickly, then pour another 1/10 of lukewarm water in it.
When I finished pouring boiling hot water in my mug, a friend called and asked me to join her for dinner. Not wanting to waste the Milo, I put a lid on the mug. Worrying that the water would condense due to the steam and it would affect the “quality taste” of the Milo, I placed the lid half opened. So off I went with my friend.
Later, when I came home, I remembered my Milo. I went to the kitchen to finish it. I was talking to my housemate when I took a big gulp.
I felt some solid particle in my mouth. Thinking it was only some left over cocoa powder particles which were not dissolve properly (which was very unlikely because I poured hot water on it!), I grumpily munched on the solid particle and found that it was a bit too rubbery to chew. Then, I fiddled it a bit with my tongue and spat it back to the mug. It was a half cooked lizard, looking right up at me.
Disbelieved, I let out a scream.
I washed my mug repetitively and gargled furiously. My housemates came to take a look at the sink and laughed hysterically. It was a dead lizard with bite marks in between its neck. Obviously, Mr Rubber Stud here decided to go for a dip in a hot spring, and accidentally fell into a volcano.
