A Date With a Grocery Cashier

My date was muttering to herself again.

“Something on your mind?” I asked.

She looked up bashfully. “It’s just… They’re overcharging pretty severely for these meals. Based on the ingredient prices, anyways.”

“Think you could take off your Grocery Cashier apron for tonight?”

She sighed. “Sorry. This is my curse…”

T(r)oll Bridge

“Who’s that trip-trapping over my bridge?”

The three billygoats prepared to flee.

“There’s a toll!” said the troll.

“Is that all?” said Mother Goat. “How much is it?”

“An arm and a leg,” said the troll. “Or two legs, in your case.”

Now the goats have to drag themselves everywhere.
