Is someone trying to tell me something?

Last week at the Farmers' Market, one of the vendors steps up to me and hands me an empty paper cup.  I comment that there is nothing in the cup as he finds his way behind his table. Noting that I am keenly observant, he asks me if I want orange juice or milk.  I take orange juice, wishing there was something else to add to the mix.  After I sip the OJ, I realize that he is from the local dairy, Royal Crest.  He asks me if I have my milk delivered.  I politely tell him that I do not drink milk.  A quizzical look came across his face and I quickly filled in the silence by saying that I drink soy.  Well, that was the wrong thing to say to the milk man!  He basically started telling me that I was going to die a quick death by consuming soy products, unless of course I was purchasing organic soy.  I started to cross step out of his tented area reassuring him that, of course I buy organic and thanking him for the delicious orange juice.  I did not place a standing order with the milk man.  
The following day I hear a truck outside my house.  I look outside to see, yes, you got it, the Royal Crest man.  I think that one of the neighbors must be getting a delivery.  Not more than a 1/2 a minute later my doorbell rings.  The milk man is at my door.  I look out and he asks me if I have my milk delivered.  I know not to bring up soy, so I respond in a kind manner that I am not interested.  
Ok, maybe the Royal Crest Dairy is hurting or maybe someone is telling me something.  Either way, I suppose I should find my calcium tablets....
