Cracked Shells


Sky Diving.  Rolling Bocce.  Rock Climbing.

On My Way Home From Grocery Shopping.

“My Free-Run Brown Eggs Rarely Make It To ‘Mi Casa es Su Casa’ The Way They Left The Chicken.”

… Maybe I Should.



I’ve Never Scanned The Dozen – ‘La Dozzina’ – With My iPhone 14s Flashlight / Torch

For Signs The Shells Have Been Breached By Some Unknown, Invasive Cracker Jack Creeping Around The Dairy Section.

… Maybe I Could.



About How I Love Opening Packages In Dollar Store Hombre?

I Make No Exceptions For Any Carton Of Eggs, But I Don’t Inspect Every Darn One Of Them.

“I Just Do It For The Grande Pageantry And A Chance To Post A Selfie On Social Media So The World Knows That I Buy Eggs, And They Should Be Reminded Of It In Real Time.”

… It Also Helps Me Bond With The Local Chapter of Nonna Nation I’ve Got Serious Street Cred With Italian Grandmothers – In Case You Ever Need Something.  Seriously.”



Oughta Pay For Something More …  Like Insurance.  It’s A Protection Racket.

“Where’s The Warranty, Cluckety, Cluck-Cluck-Cluck?”

Going Back To The Customer Service Counter To Exchange The Dozen Will Only Cause Me To Write Another Post About The Damned Ordeal.

… You Know I Will.

    Not only do I LOOK at them, but I gently pull or lift them just slightly out of their pockets because the tiniest crack will cause them to stick! If it moves, it’s a good egg. 😉😁

    See? The minute I have a meltdown about writing on a public forum you come up with the most ingenious way of writing on a topic that affects us all (and I am OUT of EGGS be that as it may) so thank you for the inspiration.

    But I still hate writing today, but I have to go to Costco which will probably enrage me in many minor ways until I erupt (again). That will almost definitely lead to my typing away furiously about a box store shopping fiasco, just for all of your reading pleasures…

    you. have. been. warned. 😛

      Too funny, Claudette.

      Seriously, it’s to the point that nearly every shopping experience has its pitfalls.

      I’m a fish out of water at CostCo. Thank God for the freebie treats or I couldn’t muster it.

      Write on! I can handle it 😳
