When you spilled the milk, did it look like the moon?

No. When I spilled the milk, my mother was so upset at the floor becoming "sticky" that appreciating it's shape never crossed my mind. By age 16, I spilled the milk at a friend's house. Her mother did not erupt in a sticky panic, but left it to the dogs to lap up. It was not shaped like the moon, it was oblong & splattered, and I was no longer ashamed.
