I’ve done quite a few blog posts about Eggs over the years.
In a post called Playing with the Word Egg I noted that “Nature recognized that the Egg was eggsactly the type of ineggspensive, eggstremely simple container needed for many housing situations. With an eggsternal shell that would survive eggstreme conditions (barring eggsplosions), the egg was an eggsellent choice where eggsessive sharp edges were undesirable for the eggspectant mother when it was time to eggspell it.”
I looked at an equation for drawing an egg shape in the post Eggs Are Eggs-actly Complex.
I even did a post about Devilled Eggs. (How hard can it be to hardboil an egg… yet the ones I did a few days were just a bit under done, so yes, it is a rather exact science.)
In this post, I’m going to explore another aspect of eggs – when you remove eggs from the carton, do you do so in a particular order? What would your egg storage container look like when you only had half the eggs left?
This was a topic on Twitter a few days ago… who says Twitter is a useless waste of time! (Thanks to Gavin Jones @ecologyofgavin for starting this inquiry.)
Gavin suggested these four possibilities:
Then he added this one:
Twitter followers added the next two:
There were a few people who were basket storers:
And last, but certainly not least, there was the ‘any place there is room in the fridge’ arrangement.
So, how about you? How do you store your eggs? Do your eggs have a storage symmetry?
