A Discussion with my Teenage Neighbor, Ty

Me: "Hi, Ty. Do you have an extra egg?"

Ty: "An extra egg?"

Me: "Yep. I'm making chocolate chip cookies, and I'm short an egg."

Ty: "Yeah, hold on."

Ty, comes back. "What month is it?"

Me, momentarily at a loss, "Um...April."

Ty: "April?"

Me: "Yeah."

Ty: "Nevermind. The eggs expired March 17."

Me: "Give it to me anyway."

Ty: "Really?"

Me: "Yeah."

Ty: "Really???"

Me: "Yep. Usually the egg just breaks down a bit instead of going rotten."

Ty: "Okaaaay." Hands me the egg.

It made very good chocolate chip cookies. But it's disturbing Ty and Steve have eggs that are five weeks past due.
