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?
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?
