Forgotten eggs


I wrote a note to remember to hard-boil eggs to decorate. I compared two sets of instructions for the “perfect” results. I put eggs in the pot, cold water over the eggs. I turned on the stove. I checked them once or twice as they neared a boil. Then I forgot them. For 15 minutes give or take. I didn’t actually remember them until I went back to the kitchen for water and had a moment of shock. There were the eggs jumping around at full boil. For 15 minutes. Or maybe longer. I wouldn’t know. I forgot.

I wonder if I made rubber? I wonder where my sharp-as-a-tack memory went. I wonder what these lapses foreshadow. After all, I’m not that old. Sigh.

    Oh my gosh! We have twin brains! I exploded 6 eggs on thursday. Left them on the stove…water evaporated and norm woke up to exploding eggs.

    Done this so many times! Be glad there was still water in the pan, it’s a bad, bad smell!
    Had to get a no-option whistling tea kettle, I melted the plastic hinge part right off the old one. How long does that take? Couldn’t tell you, but I got a lot of stuff done while it was happening!
