Julie loved nothing more than to bake, but she was trying something new today. Instead of her usual rolls and cakes, she decided on boiled chicken. It was something she’d seen on TV and thought would be a nice change of pace.
The screen door opened and her husband stepped in, sniffing the air. “Something smells wonderful.”
Julie turned and smiled, her face was bright red. “Thanks, Honey. It’s something new I wanted to try.”
Smiling, he headed into the other room. A second after seeing an empty cage he asked, “Honey, where’s Cheech?”
Julie’s smiled faded. “Chicken’s so expensive.”
