I Broke An Egg

I did it. I broke an egg. And the lesson du jour is this: never think of anything else when transporting eggs from carton to fridge except transporting them from carton to fridge, because while daydreaming and juggling two eggs in one hand (yes I have small hands), I accidentally let one slip and watching it fall to the ground in slow-mo style (time seems to freeze for some reason) was a rather painful experience.


It crashed onto the ground and poor humpty dumpty lay pitifully at the foot of my fridge, broken crown facing ceiling-wards. The true-blue tekfart in me was contemplating grabbing my camera/phone and snapping a shot for posterity (then tweeting/blogging about it), until I remembered that dried egg on the ground is a nightmare to clean. So I dutifully wiped up the mess with trusty old disposable kitchen towels.

Like they say, it’s no point crying over spilt milk broken egg.

  1. hahahhahahhahaa.. this was a seriously hilarious post. don’t get me wrong, i feel sorry for Humpty Dumpty. But u know right, even the king’s horses and king’s men couldn’t put him together again, so don’t fret too much about it. i wished you had followed your instinct and grabbed your camera to take a pic of it though. would have made for a funny tweet. oh well, you can ‘accidentally’ drop another egg soon, though pl make sure you have your camera conveniently near by and within reach, thankyouverymuch!

      You are hilarious my dear sister. But I’ll only break an egg the next time you come round for a visit, so that I can grab my camera while you can do the honours of cleaning up dried egg mess…especially the bits that have seeped underneath the fridge! Thankyouverymuch! 😀

  2. The best cleaner upper for a broken egg on the floor, or counter is a piece of bread…not sure why but it works so much better than paper towels or whatever else is handy. I usually use crusts, two pieces will clean it up completely, then a quick wipe with a damp paper towel and you’re good to go
