Have you ever grabbed a carton of eggs from the fridge, and nearly dropped it because inside, it looked like this??
Well, that's what used to happen to me... until I started taking out eggs in a balancing pattern:
Just use from the middle first, and take out every other egg. Don't leave 3 or 4 or 5 eggs all at one end -- or someone might grab the empty end of the carton -- causing the heavy end to drop unexpectedly!
Am I the only one who has a method for taking eggs out of the carton? Tell me this isn't silliness, and that you, too, have had the "Oh no, I nearly dropped the eggs!" scare!
