Eggcentric

The man I date teaches me new and amazing things every day. In fact, as the months pass, I can literally feel my I.Q. rising.

Todays lesson was: "Did you know that you can only balance an egg on its end during the Winter Soltice."

"Really?" I said sarcastically.

"Yep.  My Aunt Polly used to do it every year.  Google it." he said.

It took 3 seconds to debunk poor Aunt Polly. 

After ending the call, my scientific curiousity got the best of me.  Hey man, if Aunt Polly could do it.... I snuck into my own kitchen and...er...pulled out an egg.

I checked the glass doors and windows...(I didn't want to be caught in this absurd excercise.)

Hot Damn.  I did it.  It's been upright for 5 hours.  I swear to God, no tricks.

Have I channeled Aunt Polly?  Is the theory true? 


Tommorrow we will put Aunt Polly to the test.

You can't get this kind of hard-hitting news reporting on Channel Four (4).

This is Charmaine reporting from the kitchen, debunking myths as a public service to you, my gentle reader.  Tune in tomorrow, won't you?

My dear, I do hope you meant an egg from the refrigerator...

That is so cool! I've never heard of that but will be tuning in tomorrow.

Oh my goodness.... ah - I think you'll find it's all about gravity.

If you could balance it today, you can do it tomorrow and again on the summer solstice. Good for you for your scientific testing of it.

You better post your result tomorrow, or this will drive me crazy...

That's awesome !

364 more days until I can try this for myself.

I'm glad you got your eggs to finally behave.

He he .. you're the 'egg balancer' ... or maybe the 'egg whisperer'?

Actually you can do that balancing act on the summer solstice as well. It has something to do with gravitation force and the poles and some such technical scientific bull%&^$! Good times to be had by all though.

Merry Christmas luv!

Hope you have a happy holiday.

No way! I can't believe it! Now I'm intrigued ... (be prepared for complaints if I can't do it, too!)
