    Oh my.... Hot frying pan... dropped one lovely egg into the pan, grabbed egg # 2 and cracked it and thought I was going to die! SMELL..... It is still in my nose. Needless to say I lost my appetite....
    I do keep my eggs out on counter, but i don't think this was old... Maybe it was a hidden one the girls had stashed somewhere, and then let me have in an assassination attempt.

    [​IMG] Your nose is in my prayers.... Believe me, it needs them.
    I remember that smell very well. Never wanna smell it again. Didn't eat the rest of the day.

    As for eating.... I might have to give that up completely! UgH!

    This was funny because my family would probably boycott fresh eggs also if they ever found a rotten one. lol

    Yuck, so sorry to hear of your misfortune. That is why I always crack eggs in a cup, then put them in the pan.... I know odds are I am gonna get a bad one sometime.

    I always crack mine in a separate bowl. If I am unsure, I do the float test.
