One Saturday morning, I was up early, and decided to fix myself some bacon and eggs. Minutes later, when the eggs were ready to be turned over...try as I may...I couldn't find the spatula. .
"Honey," I called out to my wife, "have you seen the spatula...I have to turn the eggs over."
"Yes" She responded from the bedroom. "I'll get it for you."
A few minutes later, and wearing a heavy coat, she went out the front door, and I couldn't imagine where she was going.
A short time later, she returned with spatula in hand.
"Here it is!" she said, as she entered the front door, and noticeably shivering from the cold.
"Where in the world was it?" I asked somewhat amazed.
"Oh, I needed it to scrape the ice off the car windows!"
"Don't you have an ice scraper" I asked.
"Yeah," she replied, "but I don't know where it is."
"Well listen, dear," I said..."next time you go shopping...why don't you pick up a couple of extra spatulas, so we can scrape the ice off the vehicles; and, while your at it, why don't you pick up a couple of ice scrapers, so we can flip the eggs; pancakes and hamburgers!"
