How to Poach an Egg

One slow night at the Waffle House it was just one waitress, the cook who was mopping the floor, and me.


Waitress: Hi honey…what can I get you?

Me: Guess I’ll have 2 poached eggs over dry toast.

Waitress: Okay….how do you want those cooked?

Me: Uh, well….that would be POACHED. (Then I questioned the cook) Do you know how to poach eggs?

Cook: Huh, uh….but can you tell me?

Which I did. And he did….and they weren’t half bad!
