So two friends (call them “I” and “B”) and I were walking to one of their workplaces (we were hanging out watching a movie and he (“B”) got called in to deal with an emergency at about 11:30pm on a saturday night). Out of the blue some [CENSORED] thew an egg at me. Now I’m a boney, skinny thing and one would think that a egg hurled that hard would have made a huge mess (necessitating me going home) but I was lucky and except for a temporary sting and the shock, no harm done. The egg broke on the sidewalk, not me. I replied with a hearty “Oh, [BLEEP] off!”, and the [CENSORED] cackled with laughter and peeled off around the corner. To clarify, the [CENSORED] was the passenger in a car. The female part of our group, we’ll call her “I”, (on rollerblades, and in advance of us two sweaty guys) wondered at the commotion and was horrified at what she’d missed, but gave me a pass on the swearing.
So, I thank the Universe for giving that egg a tough shell so that I could stay up chatting with “I” until the wee hours of sunday morning. Sometimes you gotta be thankful for the little things.
So, anyone else been on the bad part of a (human) egging?, what about on the thowing end (and if so, justify your actions :dubious: )? Ever have what would appear to be a bad experience turn out alright afterall. Did you mutter a prayer of thanksgiving afterwards?
