A Case of Eggs

It didn’t add up. Eggs go missing from the henhouse, but the owner doesn’t call out the dogs. And now the goods turn up stashed all across town wearing a cheap dye job, just lying there for anyone to find. I was about to head back to my office when I heard the pounding of dozens of feet, tearing up the ground like the ponies at Pimlico, stampeding my way. Children. Lots of them. I’d been framed.

I knew the mob would be involved somehow.

    Happy Easter to those celebrating today! My big family meal was served last night so I get to enjoy my clean house, the peace & quiet and yummy leftovers today. Plus countdown to vacation! Only 7 more work days until I’m off on a trip to sunny Florida!!!! Can’t wait: it’s overdue.

    I’m not religious but I’ll happily appropriate any tradition that involves chocolate!

      I’m with you!

      Also my parents hide eggs with money in them.

        My egg hunt yielded $21 (a ten, a five, five singles, and a $1 coin) and two Cadbury Creme Eggs.

        And my brother and I got each other the same card.

      Me too – I love those little Russell Stover raspberry cream eggs with the dark chocolate.

      Happy Easter / Passover / tax prep weekend, all!

        Mmmm, such a chocolate egg exists?! I don’t know if they sell them up here in Canada but damn, I will keep my eyes peeled.

        • Smartypants April 16, 2017 / 4:50 pm

          Yup – around here (New England) you can find them at supermarkets and drugstores. They come in other varieties too, like maple with dark chocolate and strawberry with milk chocolate. Happy hunting!
