Don’t put all your eggs in one basket at Gordon’s Egg Farm—if you split them up among a few baskets, the per-egg charge is significantly lower. I don’t know why, but it’s this weird loophole in the system I finally discovered after years of getting burned on overpriced eggs, and I haven’t told anyone else about it yet, and even though we just met, for some reason—don’t ask me why, it’s my gut instinct, I know it’s insane—I trust you with everything.
