Don't Put All Your Eggs in One....Oh, Nevermind!

Banana Boy came home with a puzzle worksheet--you know, one of those with a riddle at the bottom to be solved by working the problems at the top.  The answer was, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket."

Pepper asked, "What does that mean, anyway?"

I tried to lead them to a discovery.  "Well, what could happen if you put all the eggs into one basket?"

Pepper: "Why would you take two baskets out"

Me: "Well, why might it be better to have them in two baskets?"

Pepper: "What if you fall down with TWO baskets?"

Banana Boy, interjecting:  "What if there's a dead cow in the middle of the road and you have to stop and move it and you drop your eggs?"
