Those lovely brown eggs

KT: Mama, are those eggs OK?

Me: Huh?

KT: The eggs, they're BROWN! Are they safe to eat?

Me: Of course they are.

KT: OK.  Ummmm, why did you buy brown ones?

Me: Because they are organic.

KT: Ooohhhhh

She nodded her head, clearly impressed with me as she walked away.  It's probably a good thing that I didn't tell her the real reason I bought the organic eggs.  I really bought them because I wanted a cardboard egg carton instead of the yucky styrofoam.  And, no….I wasn't being a typical green Seattlite, it's just that, well…you can't really glue things to styrofoam as well as to cardboard.  I need to be able to use glue with them.

Is that bad?

    No, it’s not bad. And the conversation is hysterical. Do you suppose she now thinks that the eggs are brown BECAUSE they are organic?

  2. Well…aren’t they?? 🙂

    Ha! I say do whatever works. I’ve been known to buy brown eggs because I just think they’re neat. But I think the egg color depends on the type of chicken or something. ??? Doesn’t Martha Stewart have chickens that lay pastel eggs? Okay, we’ll leave Martha out of it… ;^)
