Divine Comedy


God was making fun of me today. It just so happened this afternoon as I was making cookies that an all-too-familiar thing occurred. These are the same cookies I was making back in March of 2007 when I dropped the egg shell in the mixing Kitchen-aid only to hear the shell go "crunch-crunch" before I could switch it off. Today as I dangled the broken egg shell over the running mixer I was brought back to that moment, and I was conscious and deliberate and careful. I was actually thinking to myself, "ha, wouldn't that be silly? I won't do that again. ha, ha, OHHHH NOOO!"
I don't know how it happened. It slipped out of my hand and right into the rotating dough, beautiful creamy dough...with egg shell. Again, the sound. The "crunch-crunch". It happened so fast. Colson thought it was great. It got me laughing too as I picked my way through egg remnants. I didn't throw out the batch. That would just be a waste, and besides, I used up all my butter on this batch, which is also an ironic similarity to my 1st mishap over a year ago. I've had 2 cookies so far (only a start) and they were egg-shell free.

And this pic? Why must I always post a picture of one of my children? Let's just say I'm obsessed. It's true, and I'm not turning back.

Ha! That is hilarious! Too bad you didn't have your own reality show, it would entertain me. Little egg shell didn't kill anyone...just might cut your gums and make them bleed. I want to hear more about your camera. I looked it up on line but there seemed to be several D80's. Where did you get yours from?

Ridley and I were looking at your blog today and Ridley saw the pic of your broken egg: "Mama, she needs a tow truck to carry that to the trash" Hope you had the proper vehicle to dispose of your mess! Ha!
