    I have a cute little egg basket to collect my eggs in, but I never remember to take it out to the coop with me. My SO has reminded me several times to take it, but I don't. I have to wear my jacket to go outside right now anyhow and it has nice roomy pockets, so....
    What I didn't know is that if you fill your jacket pocket with eggs and then have to bend over sharply, you can break eggs. You'll hear a pop and know instantly what that warm wet feeling is.
    I'm in the process of washing my jacket as I type this. [​IMG]

    Hahaha! I've done that more than once. It was the worst when I put one in my coat pocket and then went to the P.O. Wondered why my jeans got all sticky, LOL.

    Yup, done that. Usually the 2 year old reminds me...."don't forget the basket or you will squish the eggs in your pocket" [​IMG]

    My hubby has done that twice! You'd think he would have learned the first time, it made him so mad. I thought it was hilarious... both times. [​IMG]

    Well, I haven't broken one yet, but I have put one in my pocket and forgotten about it and then found it days later...[​IMG]
