DD's teacher called Monday "MILK DAY"

 Apparently, I missed the memo that stated MLK = MILK.  DD (11) repeated that gem at Girl Scouts.  I told her I thought it was disrespectful.  DH said the same thing when I repeated the story. 

Has anyone else heard this?  Thoughts?

Was this in a newsletter or something? That sounds like a typo.

I've heard someone say MiLK. Just saying all the letters together. Not really saying Milk and meaning milk.

Never heard that. Is it really so hard to say Martin Luther Kind Day? Does it really need shortened? My 6 year old came home yesterday talking about a movie he watched in class. It was about Martin the Luther King.

 Nope.  It was said in class.

Not as disrespectful as how many people call it James Earl Ray day.  Which I heard a ton when I was in school and worked for other people.

I agree with others. It sounds like she was just talking fast. I've never heard it called that. If your are teally worried I'd ask the teacher about it before slandering her at the Girl Scout meeting.

 Her teacher wasn't slandered.  DD repeated it as MILK day and I told her to stop.  We discussed it further AFTER the meeting.
