So I dropped my carton of eggs. It was not entirely my fault, I had been drinking (one drink!). But the real fault was the hook on my mailbox on which I hung my bag as I fished in my pocket for my keys. The hook was apparently not attached properly and the whole carton fell on the ground. Upside down.
Opening the box, I found that a number of them were smashed. A couple more were cracked. Did I mention that the carton fell upside down?
So what to do when life hands you a carton of broken eggs?
Well let me tell you. You make an omelette. I threw away the two eggs that were completely broken. Took the others which were slightly cracked and boiled them. Took the ones that I could salvage and turned them into a late night snack!
I think that there’s a life metaphor in this story somewhere. Oh yeah, don’t hang your eggs on your mailbox!
