Egg'd on by curiousity!

Thanks a lot, folks, for all ur comments. Golly, your comment really made my day! And that made me decide to share a nice little story!

I have no doubt now that Aditi is going to be a scientist. Her curiousity is mind-boggling!

On Sunday after a trip to the market, we were feeling rather peckish, and decided to put things away after we ate. But after brunch Arun and I wanted to take a break before getting down to cleaning and putting things away. So we decided to watch something on the idiot-box for bit.

It was a nice way to spend a sunday morning. Then alarm bells rang. Why? Because I couldn't hear a thing! I couldn't see or hear Aditi, which is not a good thing at all. I asked Arun to take a look. He just walked a few paces and beckoned to me to come quickly and quietly.

There was Aditi sitting behind the sofa. She had taken some bags out of the shopping cart, and (trust her!) got to the one where the eggs were. There she was with a puddle of broken eggs around her. And before we could react, she took one egg in each hand, and banged them together... SPLAT! and had this really surprised look on her face that they broke and made a icky gooey mess all around. I choked back a laugh, so did Arun. Before we could say a thing, she just handed the broken shells in her hand to Arun, gave a brilliant smile, and said, "Thank You"

And the whole picture was so funny we didn't have the heart to scold her....

If a picture spoke the ten words then this was the time to take out ze flashwhirr and upload it... but no fear, I am sure many such opportunities will present themselves... its time to buy an Atomic Battery and keep your camera on and ready 24/7

Interestingly, the main Bus Company in Israel is called Egged. Just thought you might want some Eggstra bit of trivia. Vee, dont worry, even if this might seem a bit cracked, she will truly turn out to be a good egg and an eggspurt at whatever she takes up - scientific or not.
