Edna:

How was your hens’ party?

Esme:

Well... I... went to bed with the chick­ens. Edna: Sun­down!? Did the sky fall in? Why?

Esme: I think I counted my chick­ens be­fore they hatched.

That rooster did

Edna:

not!?

Esme:

That rooster did. I’m of­fi­cially a sin­gle lady. He crossed the road.

Edna: Buk-kak! I just laid an egg! How did he tell you?

Esme:

He said to not put all my eggs in the one bas­ket.

Edna: That rub­ber chicken... well, don’t brood over it dear, clearly, he’s a bad egg.

Esme:

Ac­tu­ally, there is a sunny side. He’s so chicken-hearted so I can wipe the egg straight off my face.

Edna:

Esme: That’s just what my mother used to say! Edna: Roost­ers like that are why peo­ple ask if chick­ens have lips. What a bird brain.

Esme: Edna: Esme: Edna: Esme: Edna:

Esme: (Sighs) Love... It’s just not every­thing it’s cracked up to be, is it?

Edna: Yep, some­times it leaves you feel­ing like Henny Penny.

Esme: Who’s Henny Penny?

Edna: That chick who ended up do­ing all the work.

Esme: Mmm, sounds like me with my other half.

Eggs-actly.

Edna:
