Oh there isn't much in this world more exciting than peeps heard from within eggs! It's as if everything magical whooshes in from the cosmos as you discern the life within the egg from that little chirp.
It's at that point I almost become glued to the incubator windows. I feel myself "sharpening" my hearing, tilting my head this way and that, searching for yet another peep. Was it from this egg? Or that egg? Cmon! Peep again! Peep MORE!
In a sort of twisted fashion, the old Mervyn's commercials got it right for us: our palms pressed flat against the glass on both sides of our heads, nose prints developing on the clear surface as we half-whisper, "Open, open, open!"
