Adding to my split.
« on: June 15, 2020, 05:51:40 pm »
I felt like my latest split was a little light.  It needed a few more bees.  Not a lot, just a few.

So, I went to my favorite apiary and asked for 12 bees.  She began counting out 13 bees and put them in a box.

"Hey!" I said, "that's one too many bees."

The apiarist pointed to one of the girls and replied, "That one is a Freebie."

  In 13th century England, a law was enacted which prevented bakers from cheating customers and selling light loaves of bread. To prevent themselves from getting in trouble with the law, bakers would give an extra loaf for every dozen purchased to make up for any potential shortfall.  Seems to me you got a... "Bakers Dozen!"   ;D
