Day 8: A strange telephone call


So, the egg somehow managed to call The Herald-Dispatch newsroom today. The conversation follows:

HD: "Herald-Dispatch, how may I help you?"

EGG: *snickers* "Sooooo guess who this is?!?!"

HD: "I have no idea, sir. How can I help you?"

EGG: "Well, are you running some kind of contest right now?"  *more snickering*

HD: "Umm, yes, sir. We are running a Easter Egg Treasure Hunt contest. A new clue runs each day in the Classifieds section."

EGG: *LOUD laughing* "Has NO ONE found the egg?"

HD: "No, sir, no one has called to say they have found the egg."

EGG: "You are CRACKING ME UP!"

HD: "Excuse me?"

EGG: "I'm the EGG!"

HD: "Ummm, well, that's interesting. How in the world are you calling.."

EGG: *interrupts*  "Listen, I don't have much time for chit-chat. Are you SURE people are looking for me?"

HD: "Yes, sir, we have had a few calls and emails from readers who say they are hunting."

EGG: "And are you SURE those clues are getting published every day?"

HD: "Yes, we are publishing them every day."

EGG: "And readers know I'm worth $1,000?"

HD: "Yes, we have mentioned that."

EGG: "PLEASE make sure someone finds me! I'm tired of the on-again, off-again rain. And I'm lonely. And I don't like the dark at night. And there are these BIRDS that I think you should get an investigative reporter to look into. There's something shady about them that I can't put my finger on..."

HD: "Umm, sir, you are an egg, you have no fingers."

EGG: *silence*  "Just make sure someone finds me."  *click*

So, apparently, the egg has an odd sense of humor.

One week of clues


Dear Friends,

We have given you SEVEN days of clues now.

SEVEN. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7!

And yet, the egg is still in hiding.

Could it be in West Virginia? Ohio? Kentucky?

We can verify the egg is, indeed, NOT on Mars. Or Jupiter. Or Saturn. :)

 The weather will be a bit cooler today. Only the brave and fearless will be out hunting! Are you one of them? Tell us in the comments!
