One Half Dozen Hard Boiled Eggs
Dad checked the fridge, looking for eggs. There were 18 in there; way too many to use any time soon. So Dad decided to hard-boil 6 of them. He finished boiling them and then left them in the clear plastic container to cool on the counter top. Then he bolted out of the house for a meeting.
Later that day, Dad informed Mom-mom that there were some hard-boiled eggs in the fridge, available for breakfast or lunch tomorrow.
“Where?”, she asked.
“Right there in the clear egg carton”, “Dad answered confidently.
“You mean in here?”, replied Mom-mom holding up an empty clear egg six-pack. Mongo cowered at the sight of the egg carrier.
“Umm, yeah… Well, there were hard boiled eggs in there… “, Dad started haltingly. Suddenly, he had an inspiration on how to shift the conversation. “Mongo! Have you been bad again?”
Mongo slunk away, and hid under the kitchen table. He looked up at Dad with sad brown eyes, as if to say, “I couldn’t help myself. My nose made me do it!”
Subsequently, Dad cleaned up some very white dog poop.
