    I just realized it may have not made it here and wanted to see what you guys all thought.

    Read it and see it here.

    To me, it doesn't look that big, and then I look at the other eggs, and they're pretty doggoned big, too...then I think about a hand holding the box....and I think, OUCH!

    Gobsmacked is one of my new favorite words. I like the word, "Piffle!" too!

    You know that feeling after natural childbirth, where you don't want to sit down for a week or two? Yeah, I imagine it's got to be like that. I feel for her.[​IMG]
