This one-liner comes courtesy of a friend and fellow writer who writes fabulous modern fantasies under the name of Eli Cobb.
She reported the following conversation between a friend/relative of hers and the waitress at an unnamed restaurant.
Friend/relative: What’s this oily milky liquid my egg is in?
I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s fine.
Yeah, uh-huh, I would be like, “You don’t know what your tip is going to be, either, but I hope you’re fine with nothing. Is nothing fine?”
