Today my dad left some boiling eggs on the stove for so long that they exploded—yes exploded—and almost started a fire before my sister found them. If you think rotten eggs cause a horrible smell, try burning some. The stench was so disgusting and so potent, that it woke me from my sleep in a room where the door was closed and on a higher level than the kitchen. We opened the windows and had to use a lampe berger in every room of those house to try to get the smell out and it’s still not completely gone.
This was one of those things that you don’t have to be too far removed from to actually laugh…because it just happened this morning and I’m already cracking up. I probably wouldn’t be laughing as much though if it had caught the house on fire, but one pot lost isn’t too bad.
