Boom! A large crater, as big as the Grand Canyon appeared in the supermarket's car park. It was a Monday and Ethel, on the checkout, was having a normal day, until two strangely dressed ladies arrived in the queue. One exclaimed, 'Oh Florence! You would never guess the price of this milk.'
The other responded, 'Oh yes Cleopatra! And these plasters are not like they used to be.'
Suddenly, the loudspeaker called, 'Anyone seen Tutankhamun's mummy?'
Ethel thought, anyone would think a time machine had landed outside! She shook her head, gave a giggle, and carried on.
