      Another example of this method comes from my youth, when we would go to a soda fountain for a malted milk. The soda clerk′s job was to sell eggs with the malted milk. If he didn′t have the skills, he would shyly say, “You probably don′t want an egg with your malted milk do you?” The answer would be a quick no. If he knew what you know now, he would hold an egg in each hand and say, “Which do you prefer, one egg or two in your malted milk?”
