“Many people die at 25 and don’t get buried until they’re 70.”
The other day I made some eggs in the microwave using a round dish. They cooked up nicely and took the form of the dish. So I asked myself, “Self, what if I put the eggs in a rectangular dish and used that as a template for an omelette?”
Well, doesn’t that look disgusting. But let me assure you, it gets betterish.
After microwaving this (2 eggs) for about one or two minutes, it looked like this.
You notice the glitch right away, don’t you. But I am nothing if not creative. I simply covered the hole with cooked pieces of bacon and topped it with diced onions and pieces of cheese called mango fire. There was a lot more fire than mango.
Those are the glamour shots of my creation pre and post microwave for another minute. And as Shakespeare would say, even though he wasn’t talking about omelettes, “Alls well that ends well”.
OK. So some of those pictures could use a bit of parsley. But as we know, the parsley is no longer with us. I could purchase more but then I’d be obligated to use it before it would come to the same brutal end as the previous parsley.
Perhaps the solution would be to purchase a parsley plant and put it on the windowsill with the thyme and basil, which is the entire scope of this year’s edible garden. My flower beds are hopeful that the time I won’t need weeding and swearing at my vegetable patch, which is now under concrete, (another story) can be used for their beautification.
But as one of my friends once asked, “What do you call that blue flower in your flower bed?” Being an honest person I answered, “Lucky to be alive.”
