I Needed A Laugh

I just saw a neighbor in the hallway. She told me she was on the way to the store and asked if there was anything she could pick up for me. I told her Romaine lettuce and fresh spinach would be great.

As she headed down the stairs she started chanting...

"Romaine lettuce and spinach...
Romaine lettuce and spinach...
Romaine lettuce and spinach...
Romaine lettuce and spinach..."

Halfway down the stairwell she yelled up,

"I'm going to keep saying this so I don't forget, and when I get back I'll hand you a bag and say 'here is exactly what you wanted: Soap, and milk.' "
