Our Manic Monday host Mo has given us the word “egg” this week. Being Easter week, that shouldn’t be too difficult, but perhaps just a bit too easy. Paranoid? Perhaps.
So I wondered, what egg stories did I have that didn’t involve cute little Easter Egg hunts growing up, or my nephew’s Easter Egg hunts, which were way better because they got money hidden in their eggs. Oh yeah, actual “In God We Trust” Cashola! SisterDear would put coins in some and in some she would deposit bills. Sometimes she’d even put in tickets to the Red Sox game!! SisterDear2 is very cool! But she wouldn’t let me hunt for eggs, so some cool points had to be deducted for that.
Then I recalled a day a few years ago that I was having a bunch of friends over for a Gathering. One of my guests, the very sassy wife of a co-worker, brought me a very unusual Hostess Gift. She brought me a basket of freshly laid eggs, straight from “her girls” that very morning!! She has chickens, laying hens in fact, that she originally got as chicks one Easter to delight her grandchildren.
Now, I ask you, how often have you had eggs THAT fresh? The trouble for me was, since I knew the chickens personally, I found myself unable to actually eat the eggs. Yeah, I’m just weird that way.
