Easter eggs


He had a hidden, sweet smile
But a terrible tattoo.

He had terrific taste in tacos
But utterly horrible manners.

He had the poshest accent
But a serious, long-term girlfriend.

They are like a girl’s very own, multi-coloured, cheap, plastic Easter eggs, waiting to be cracked open.  Sigh, these silly little Easter eggs.  The question is not whether or not they are novel, intriguing, or interesting.  The question is their duration - how long they will remain novel, intriguing, or interesting.  Attention-deficit disorder is not a condition that is isolated to my horse Ryon.  My attention could be lost to a myriad of shiny objects, bright lights, or sudden movements.

However, you bring the repartee and I will guarantee you an interested audience who won’t once be distracted by looking at a flashing screen.  You bring a conversation that does not revolve around “so what do you do for a living” and I guarantee you that I won’t give you a fake response, smile, or laugh.  We may even talk for hours.  Or we could crash and burn.  But oh what a crash it would be!

Oh, and my favourite way of preparing eggs?  Scrambled.


  1. OH, it's hard isn't it? Aren't you kind of wondering if that other Easter Egg sitting over there is prettier when it's cracked open? ;) Options!

  2. Scrambled are the best...maybe with a little cheese mixed in...and/or some bacon...or perhaps an omelette full of surprises. Man, I'm hungry this morning. Wait, what was this post about??? Oh yeah, a good, old-fashioned Easter egg hunt. Find a shiny one with money inside. :D

  3. Agreed, the question always is the duration...

  4. yeah, how many of these do you have to crack open to find something interesting. maybe we should extend your analogy to include southeast Asia. century egg anyone? let's bury them in mud and let them sit for a few weeks or months or years and see what comes out in the end?

  5. very interesting. i need to let this float around in my brain a bit. i just haven't slept a whole lot this week, but this isn't about actual easter eggs, right? ;)

  6. love scrambled eggs too! so good with ham in it :-)

  7. Sometimes I tire of the hunt . . . perhaps that's because I haven't cracked any good ones lately. Wait, that comment sounds unfortunate . . . but you know what I mean. Right? :)

  8. i love scrambled eggs too. well, i love eggs in general. i know some people don't like them and that's okay. that just means there's more for me. :)

    ps. i am way too easily distracted. which is why going on youtube for me usually results in lost pockets of time. ahh, well. what can ya do?

  9. Hey, you poet, you. I like this...and the question of how long one will be interested in the novelty. hmmmm...interesting indeed.

  10. I hated eggs forever and ever! but now I can handle a scramble with cheese and hopefully some vegetables. have a wonderful weekend.
