A Math Problem

Take two packages of dinosaur oatmeal -- the kind with little eggs that hatch into red dinosaurs upon impact with boiling water. Divide into three bowls. Make sure everybody has the same number of marvelous hatching eggs. Give everybody a pat of butter -- then give Margaret an extra slice. Now, the question is: how many minutes until you're late for work (again)?
