Virgil and Florena Go Out for Breakfast
Doesn't happen but once a year, but Virgil and Florena decided they would go out for a special breakfast. This year they opted for Teena's Restaurant in Rumford. They got up early and drove over to Rumford in the old pick-up truck.
The two walked in and sat down. They couldn't help but notice the sign out front that read, "The Best Breakfast in Town".
Pretty soon, a waitress came by to take their order. Virgil ordered up his and the waitress turned to Florena to get her order.
"And what can I get for the missus this morning?" asked the skinny, buck-toothed, cigarette sucking waitress.
Florena began, "I'd like two eggs. One I want cooked so much that you can't cut it with a fork. The other one I would like so that the white of the egg has barely had a chance to turn white from cooking. In other words very runny. I would also like four strips of bacon about room temperature and cooked so crisp you nearly break your teeth when you try to bite it. Give me two pieces of toast. It doesn't matter what kind but it should be burned black and so dried out that when you touch it, it disintegrates. Oh, and make sure the butter is straight from the freezer so it's impossible to spread. Finally, bring me a cup of coffee that's lukewarm and tastes like the oil from my husbands old truck out there. I guess that will do it."
"Ma'am," said the waitress. "We can't prepare your food like that."
"Hmmm," mused Florena. "You did last year!"
