One morning and elderly couple went to a restaurant for breakfast where the ‘Senior Special’ was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.
“Sounds good,” my wife said, “but I don’t want the eggs.”
“Then I’ll have to charge you $3.49 because you’re ordering a la carte,” the waitress warned her.
“You mean I’d have to pay more for not taking the eggs?” my wife asked incredulously.
“Yes,” said the waitress.
“I’ll take the special, then,” my wife said.
“How do you want your eggs?” the waitress asked.
“Raw and in the shell,” my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
