I Have The Most Fun Conversations....
I got up to the checkout, dump everything but the eggs on the belt, and handed the cashier one dozen eggs.
"I have 16 of these," I told her, "And don't worry about bagging them."
She glanced into the cart and then at me...and then at the cart, "Wow, that's a lot of eggs."
"Yes. Yes, it is."
She starts scanning my items, "I hope you don't mind me asking but...what do you do with all of those eggs?"
This is where I had to stop myself from spouting some sarcastic, foolish thing that probably would have gotten me in trouble. ***
Instead, I told her plain and simple, "We eat them."
*** I had the greatest urge to tell her, "Oh, I'm going to fling them at cars off the freeway overpass." or "Hatch them into chickens. Cheap protein."
You're welcome to add your own comebacks below... ;-)
