Eggs from the basement

When I arrived at work this morning, I was promptly informed that a guy that works in the basement of our building had brought in eggs from his own chickens to sell.  So we ventured down to see him, and low-and-beyond, a dozen eggs for $1.25.  

I won’t be eating these eggs today.  I’m on a clear liquid diet all day to prepare for some medical tests tomorrow.  Fun stuff, huh?  I knew better than to try to look for “local” clear liquids, concentrating instead on just ingesting as much high fructose corn syrup as possible – Sprite, pineapple Jello, white grape juice, etc.  I figured the sugary stuff would be OK for a day, especially since I can’t have coffee – the java we brew at home is not even close to clear!
