“If you were an egg, what kind of egg would you be?” I asked That’s Not Chinese. Her first response was, “Fried.” She later, when other guests were present and suggesting ‘omelet’ or ‘free range,’ stated, “Over easy.”


She says that, but I think she does so without research. She may actually be deviled. Me, on the other hand, well, that’s debatable.


That’s Not Chinese sees me as, “scrambled…with cheese.” I’m thinking more sunny side up. I’m definitely not poached – I’m pretty sure that is illegal.


There are, also, those eggs with blood. Which, apparently, are safe for consumption. I’d steer clear of such activity. If you’re into eggs, I recommend sticking with that which you know: over-easy, scrambled, deviled, hard boiled.


If you move on to the chicken stage, which many do, it may be too late for you. Next thing you know, you’re just an organic vessel, soon to be served at places like Chick-fil-A. At which time, regardless of how they ‘choke their chicken,’ it is far too late for saving.


Too late to be anything other than some chicken who was part of Prop (h)ATE.
