Molly came in with both hands full of groceries and set them on the kitchen counter.  Phil walked into the kitchen and said, “Man, it looks like you bought out the whole store!  Did you remember to get all the ingredients for the soup we are making tonight?”

There was a look of panic on Molly’s face as she said, “What all did we need again?”

Phil said all the ingredients and then added, “By the look on your face right now I will surmise you forgot at least one thing.”

Molly tried to smile and said, “Guilty as charged.”
