We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the special was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.
“Sounds good,” my wife said. “But I don’t want the eggs.”
“Then I’ll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you’re ordering la carte,” the waitress warned her.
“You mean I’d have to pay for not taking the eggs?” my wife asked incredulously. “I’ll take the special then.”
“How do you want your eggs?”
“Raw and in the shell,” my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home.
