Do you ever do something that makes perfect sense to you only to have someone else think that it’s odd?
I suppose I should have had a clue that my egg arranging was not necessarily the norm when I had to coach Eric about what pattern to use eggs in the carton. You see, I’m all about there being a nice even weight distribution in the egg carton. So, if I have to grab out two eggs, I’ll grab out one from somewhere in the carton, but then the second one needs to come from the opposite side of the carton from whichever spot will balance out the other empty spot.
I suspect I need diagrams here, huh? Sorry — I don’t have them.
When one of my sisters was using eggs at my house, I later got out the carton and then said, “You used some eggs, didn’t you?” She asked how I knew, and I said it was because the eggs were out of order. She laughed at me, and later had to tell some people about what a crazy thing I did with the eggs. I was relieved when at least a couple of other people said they do the same thing.
With holiday baking coming up this week, I think I’m going to be doing a lot of egg re-arranging. (Oh, and then a little bit of annoyance each time I can’t balance it out exactly.)
Do you have any kitchen quirks that you don’t actually think are all that quirky?
