Have you ever laid an egg?

    Being perfect I have never laid an egg. Just wondering if any of you have?

    We all know someone who did as a kid. When he put a baby robin in his basket of snakes to be the snakes little brother.....

    I want to hear other "eggs' we have done.

    I am sure I will think of one I did, but at my age it takes a while to try and bring up the memories I have spent years suppressing.

    Routinely. Since 'snakes' are the initial entry, I will submit, 'Putting a sticky trap with a dead snake stuck to it in the trash can where the Princess could inadvertently get it stuck to her hand.' Not good.

    ROFLMBO!!


    This is what I needed to hear!! I can imagine what life would be like for me if I did that!!1 It would not be good. I would want to sleep in the guest room for weeks, just to assure not waking up dead from Pillow held to the face syndrome.

    Then there was the time that I did 'The Barbecue Luge". Some eggs are far more painful than others. Ralphie, pay a visit to my old thread, 'Sourland in trouble'. Trouble just seems to stalk me.

    Once visiting my grandpa, I thought it would be fun for an egg to hatch in his closet. I got one out of the fridge, carefully wrapped it in his socks and tucked it way in the back corner of his bedroom closet. Then forgot to tell him.

    He found out weeks later when he tracked down the source of the stench.

    Note, I said I did it once.

    You admitted it?


    Stuck a bunch of praying mantis egg cases behind the radiator in the bathroom. They all hatched at the same time. I can still picture Mom scooping them up with a 3 X 5 card and dumping them out of the window with me going, "Remember, it's illegal to kill them."
