Milk Eggs Vodka

Quite possibly my favorite coffee table book (other than Kramer's) is Milk Eggs Vodka.  The book is just a bunch of grocery lists found by individuals and then submitted to Bill Keaggy. It is the only coffee table book that we have that I actually read through every now and then.

Several months ago I found a list of my own to submit (and just pulled it out the grocery bag this weekend).

oil, banana, milk, blanket, pork, ginger, green onion, ?????, eggs

What is going on here? I have no idea what is between green onion and eggs. I'm beginning to think this guy needed 23,312 eggs. That's a lot of eggs. Maybe the blanket was to keep them all from banging against each other on the ride home. 

As for the second thing.... Did he need to pick up some Chinese food on the way home? I usually just write down what I want in english. 

Here's the back of the list. It looks like the guy was trying to figure out how may eggs he needed. 

If you haven't read Milk Eggs Vodka. It's a good read and will give you lots of chuckles. I promise.
