As heard at dinner tonight . . .

Me: I hope the corn muffins are ok. The cornmeal I used was a little past the expiration date. [side note: it expired over a year ago]

Cindy: I'm sure it's fine. I always feel that way about when I use eggs past their expiration date.

Me: (in a nonchalant, joking voice) Yeah, as if they'll taste a little too much like chicken.

Katie: Is that what happens?


Me: What do you mean?

Katie: (not in a joking voice) Is that how eggs become chickens?

Me: Are you asking if chickens come from eggs that have been sitting too long?

Katie: Yeah. I don't know.


Me: This conversation's gonna haunt you for a really long time.
