When I was a little girl, it creeped me out to watch my scrambled eggs turn green right before my eyes. I could never figure it out. I can remember asking my mom, "MOM! My eggs are turning green, what's going on?" I'm not even sure she listened to me half the time because I talked so much, she was able to tune me out real good. I can remember thinking to myself..."I don't want to eat green eggs. They look so gross. But if I don't finish them I'll get in trouble. But if I do finish them, will I turn green?" My mother scared me more than turning green, so I finished the eggs.
I'm not sure when I discovered the reason for the transforming eggs, but it still amazes me. Just in case you're wondering, I like to eat my eggs with a piece of jelly toast, which is what causes the eggs to turn green. Surprised I figured it out? Yeah, I was too. Now if only I can figure out a way to turn some ham green, I can really freak my kids out.
