Did you know that eggs can stand on end–without being cracked? It can only be done twice a year–on equinox, the days that the sun crosses the equator. That is the first day of spring and the first day of autumn, so around March 20-23 and September 20-23. Today happens to be equinox, and for once we remembered to try this trick. It works! Take a look at these pictures.
About sixteen years ago, someone told my family about this, so we tried it. I have a couple of pictures of four or five eggs standing on end in our living room. I remembered that Tuesday morning, so found those pictures and took them along to Dead Boring (writing group), and told the group about this. Then, believe it or not, I would have forgotten again until too late, except that one of the moms texted me this morning about it!
