Quote of the Day: Don't do two things at once if you can't do one thing really well. - Papa Currie

There is this tiny squeal and then a loud Pop! The egg jumps up out of the dry burning pot and explodes into the air.
Dad, I yell, your eggs!
Damn! I hear him wrestle with a drawer at the top of the stairs before he thumps down, rushing onto the scene.
I'm standing in kitchen admiring the eggshell shrapnel.  Hard boil bits are minuscule and everywhere.

  1. Must run in the family...

    Last fall when I was away for a weekend, Scott put a pot of eggs on to boil... and then went for a walk in the woods... He came back to a house full of smoke and the smoke alarm blaring. I came back the next day and the house still reeked of burned egg, he totalled my pot, but I guess I should have been glad I still had a house.
