Number One on the List
Moishe Epstein was completely lost in the kitchen and never ate unless his wife Rose prepared a meal for him. But when Rose became ill, Moishe knew it was time to step up so he volunteered to go to the supermarket for her. She sent him off with a carefully numbered list of seven items.
Moishe returned shortly, very proud of himself, and proceeded to unpack the grocery bags. He had one bag of sugar, two dozen eggs, three packages of chicken, four boxes of detergent, five boxes of crackers, six eggplants, and seven green peppers.
