Fun With Household Appliances

Awhile back I mentioned my fondness for kicking toadstools.

I have one more thing to add to my list of things that make me giggle like a maniac: Dropping eggs that are in the shell into the garbage disposal. There's an art to it. You have to have it centered just right before you release or you'll end up seeing raw egg in the sink. And I don't want to see that. I want to see that pristine, aerodynamic, unsuspecting little egg sailing through the air and then "shoop" into the gaping blackness of the disposal and then nothing. It's like it never even existed.

Beautiful.

You know, I'm sure I have some quirks that are comparable to this, but I really can't think of them now.

(*backing away slowly*)

Teasing. Just dropping a line to let you know I'm here. (I'm here frequently, just rarely have the brain power to respond/leave a comment.)

I do that, too! I love the sound it makes!

Ha-ha, I was about to make fun of you for this but then came to the realization that I'm totally trying that when I get home.

BO Snagley said...

want to buy some more eggs.

Now I know what to do with all the duck eggs my mom keeps trying to get rid of. Genius!

Good times, good times.

Only you.....only you!!

Queen Of Pink said...

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. But then again, I love dropping eggs on the cement. Why? Who the hell knows but it's fun!

This is way more interesting than kicking toadstools. But it begs the question: Should you put eggs down the garbage disposal anyway?

anne arkham said...

Expired eggs, Midwestern City Boy.

Scorpy - No need to back away slowly, just wait til I'm busy with the garbage disposal and then run like hell! :)

Anne Arkham - I love the sound too. It's such a quick, crunchy, destructive noise. It's like "white noise" that's come to life.

Armaedes - It's fun to put cubed potatoes in there too.

Bo Snagley - Have they expired? I only use eggs that are past their prime.

Bekah - Make sure they're not fertilized. It makes a big mess and you'll have to get a new disposal.

Kyuball - Never let it be said that I don't know how to party.

TXSM - I just know there are millions of other people out there that do this. You should give it a try and let me know what you think. It's very freeing.

QoP - I like hurling eggs at trees. But the place across the street where I used to throw eggs is having a house built on it. I had to find a new outlet.

MCB - You've gotta be kidding me! What should you NOT put in the disposal? I think if the disposal will chew it up then it belongs in there.

I LOVE that Chickie11 Boy do I know that feeling well! It's like being a Bombedeir, isn't it! Hit that target square on....

By the way, that Diet Tablet Brochure does say, 2 tablets= up to 12 pounds lost! So, you are correct on that....LOL! (There must be some pretty terrifying stuff in that tablet!)

Chickie said...

OOLOTH - So that means if I give Tiny dog one then she will disappear. I may have to get some of those just in case worse comes to worst.

BO Snagley said...

all my eggs are in their prime.
However when i come accross some rotten ones i will have them shipped to you.
Postage due of course.

Sasha said...

ok. you'll have post pics on how that's done. i couldn't picture it! ;)

Zube Girl said...

I'm going to have to try that. Hee. I love being easily entertained.

Jess said...

I'm going to try that and see if Mr Sxxy finds me insane!

Chickie said...

Bo Snagley - I'll give the disposal a tune-up to make sure it's ready for the task.

Sasha - This may be my next HNT post...

Zube Girl - Draw some little screaming faces on the eggs. It's a blast.

Jess - He might be EXTRA nice to you for awhile. Sweety is always very kind when he thinks I'm feeling psychotic.

Amy said...

LOL - What is the deal with eggs and stress release?!?!? One Thanksgiving my mom was mid-divorce and on the verge of a miscarriage and she opened up the fridge and dropped an egg on the floor, then she dropped two more... she said she'd never felt such a wonderful release.

It took several years (and unfortunate incidences) but now I completely understand and cannot resist a near hysterical giggle whenever an egg hits the floor. ;o)

Chickie said...

Amy - I hate eggs and I love my garbage disposal. This was fate. Sometimes it's just fun to destroy things!
