I have read posts where others casually mention that exploded eggs are gross and otherwise unpleasant. Nothing prepared me for my first egg explosion. It was utterly VILE! I am a mother and pet owner. I have cleaned poop from every kind of animal out of every kind of place. Still doesn't compare to the odor that is currently permeating my kitchen. I have been known to forget about leftovers in the back of the fridge, only to find them weeks (or months) later with mold so thick the original food is unrecognizable. The stench is pleasant compared to that of the exploded egg. I have found sippy cups of milk hidden in my car for hot summer weeks. Downright fragrant compared to that egg. I would rather perform an appendectomy on myself than smell that smell again! I am considering selling my home because the kitchen now brings back horrible nauseating memories of the exploded egg. I will NEVER be able to eat an egg again. EVER. Yes, it was THAT disgusting.
