Well I did it again. I must have done this a dozen times and I'm not eggsaggerating. I allowed boiled eggs to burn in the pan on the stove - eggsactly as I'd done in the past. Apparently I didn't learn from those eggsperiences. I had put four eggs on to boil and set the timer, then decided to go downstairs and begin the daily cat care. I thought I'd spend a few minutes feeding and watering the clan, then come up and eggsamine the boiling eggs. I ran into complications which I'll eggsplain in another post.
I lost track of time and when I came upstairs I smelled something eggstremely pungent and wondered if one of the cats had become eggcited and made a mess somewhere. At the eggsact moment I reached the landing, I realized what had happened and where the "aroma" originated.
I hurried to the kitchen and eggcitedly took the pan off the stove. The eggs were eggstremely hard-boiled and even though I was eggstra careful, one eggsploded as I lowered the pan into the sink! As you can see from the photo, the eggs were burned beyond use. There are three eggs in the pan, but where's the fourth? It's on the ceiling, the wall, the kitchen counter, and the floor - whoops, it's not on the floor anymore. The dog just cleaned up that mess. This is so eggsasperating!
