Practice Makes Perfect January 24, 2023

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

Hearts, like eggs, are fragile.

However, once broken open, infinite possibilities await.

We can collapse into a pool of tears, become hard-boiled (or scrambled) by the ways of the world, or emerge sunny-side up.

Just remember, even a master chef can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs:

Aah . . . that’s better!

That is some eggceptional knife work.

Eggs are very precious these days!

nrhatch - January 25, 2023

They have gotten quite pricey in many parts of the country. Not sure what they sell for here since we don’t eat eggs . . . except in cake. 😀

Kate Crimmins - January 25, 2023

I haven’t bought any recently. A dozen lasts us a while.

Pretty nifty egg work there!

When he started drawing the heart, I was amazed at his artistry.

When the yolk dropped intact, even more so.

4. Behind the Story - January 24, 2023

Amazing! But I wonder how you eat it. (Am I being too practical?)

nrhatch - January 25, 2023

I’m guessing he turns it into a version of fried rice or dumps it into egg drop soup. 😀

Behind the Story - January 25, 2023

Yes. Egg drop soup would work.

I’m still blown away by Rivergirl’s post about Humpty Dumpty not being an egg!

Bruce @ walkingoffthechessboard - January 25, 2023

I refuse to accept that reality. Humpty will always be a good egg to me. (As I told Rivergirl, in my universe Pluto is still a planet as well…)

nrhatch - January 25, 2023

Per Snopes.com . . . Humpty Dumpty was not a canon. His genealogy is likely just a simple nursery rhyme. That said, he’s probably not a REAL egg.

Great chef skills there, and a great message as well, Nancy. I always try to keep my heart sunny-side-up!

nrhatch - January 25, 2023

Yes, indeed! Staying sunny-side up pays dividends!

7. Debra - January 25, 2023

I’d love to know how many hours that chef practiced that impressive move! What a delightful illustration to the message, Nancy!

nrhatch - January 25, 2023

Yes! And who came up with the idea to try it in the first time? Hard to believe it happened by happenstance.

Somebody conceived it, believed it & achieved it!

Huh. I am in awe at this man’s ability, but can’t help feel sorry for his mother. You just know with a skill like that he was an annoying kid.

nrhatch - January 26, 2023

He probably practiced with a ping pong ball and paddle . . . or tennis racket and tennis ball . . . while wandering around from room to room. 😀

Ally Bean - January 26, 2023

Yep. Like I said, his poor mother…
