Green Eggs and Blueberries

Everyone is familiar with Dr. Seuss and his book, "Green Eggs and Ham." This true story puts Green Eggs and Ham to the test.

My sister and I were having a late breakfast at a well-known pancake house. My brother-in-law joined us. He ordered eggs overeasy with blueberry pancakes. During the course of his meal I happened to notice his eggs had green in them. It was a concern so we called the waitress over for a look. She called over the manager and they remade his egg order.

As he proceeded to eat his new order I again noticed green appearing. The artist in me came to the rescue. Blue and yellow makes green – the blueberries were mixing with the egg from his fork. We tested this theory and sure enough: green eggs. We did tell the waitress that we had solved the mystery.

What a memory. We still laugh about it.
