No Head, please!

Break time from Thanksgiving prep.

It is always an interesting experience buying duck when I get this one particular woman cook/clerk.
"I'd like 3 ducks, sliced, no heads please".
"Yes, and no heads"
She then writes up a ticket for 1 duck
I hold up 3 fingers. I have a tendency to hold up my thumb, and first two fingers rather than the middle three fingers. Residual effects of sign language. Confusion, and then I switched to the usual way. Okay. We're in business.

I got home and was putting the ducks into their container and there it is, just looking at me - one duck head. *sigh*
