It's a Dozen
My first dozen eggs! My chest is puffed out with pride.
Actually, I gave a 1/2 dozen to a coworker earlier this week, and I've been eating 2-3 eggs most days, so even though it's the first time I've had an egg container full, there's been more than a dozen eggs given by my 5 ladies.
Here's an amusing thing ... I offered to bring some eggs in for my boss and he paused for a bit and said, "um, yeah, OK. We'll try some." And this ... the coworker, who has the space next to mine said, "will the eggs stay fresh until the weekend?" They both have this idea that my eggs are somehow weird and different from the eggs they get at the store. I understand. I was that way too not too long ago.
I've gotten 4 eggs most days this week which is more than I expected out of the 5 hens. I had this idea that each hen will lay an egg 2 days out of 3, or something like that? Maybe that does work out to 4 eggs a day, but somehow I expected 3 eggs a day. Don't ask me to recreate how I calculated that! I'll take every egg they want to give me!
