A few days ago I called in to see my daughter and the 2 grand daughters. It was around 8 pm and the girls were supposed to be on their way to bed. We had a quick cuddle, and chat. As I was leaving (it was only a very short visit) my daughter asked me if I needed some eggs. She was supposed to give me some a few days earlier.
Daughter Z is 'the chicken woman' - and has some dozen or so laying hens. She sells her eggs for pocket money. Normally I don't pay, but on this occasion she reminded me that it usually costs $2. OK, said I, but I don't have my purse with me, so I will have to owe it. I laughed and said "Write an IOU" - within seconds she had gone and written out on a piece of paper for me to sign.
Last night I had a dream (or was it a nighmare) that Miss Z came and took the eggs back - because I have not paid!!!!
I had to check in the fridge this morning - I still have said eggs, so my eggs are safe for the moment - must get over there and pay my $2 quickly!!!
