    Don’t forget your raincoat

    COLUMN: My family was invited to a friend’s house for supper one night. She told us that poppy seed chicken was on the menu. A few minutes later she called back and asked if we had any butter. The phone rang again and she asked if we had any poppy seeds. I laughed and told her I believed all she had was some chicken and an idea.
