    I went out and collected eggs this morning. I got 8, but I couldn't carry them all. So I put some in my coat pockets. Came in and put them in egg cartons. "I thought I had more eggs than that", I said to myself. Checked my pockets nope, no more. Hum. [​IMG] Oh well. This is the day that some lay later in the day.

    Well, I went out tonight to lock the girls up and put my hand in my pocket. OH GROSS!!! What is that slimmy stuff in my pocket, that's all over my keys and stuff. Yep, you guess it, the missing egg. I guess it got wrapped in my head band I wear to keep my ears warm. [​IMG]

    I think I'll be taking out an egg basket or something in the future.

    Yeah it was like stepping on a slugand have it ooze between your toes. But I think the slug is worse.

    I done it once before as well. I forgot one in my swaet pants. Through them on the foor and later on when I wanted to put them on I can feel the slime on my leg. Me stupidly wondering why there is slime pulled out the shattered egg and said "oh there you are" Who wants scambled eggs?
