June 3rd National Egg Day
Which came first, the chicken or the egg, the alligator or the egg, the snake or the egg… well, you get he picture. The egg is often considered the perfect food. It contains protein and amino acids but no carbohydrates or sugar. You can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner and in some extreme conditions, even a snack. Still you have to wonder, who first saw an egg and said, “yum… that looks good enough to eat”. Probably by watching animals!
How to celebrate – Count how many ways you can cook eggs. Have an egg fest party. Make up as make puns using eggs as you can.
Ever notice how when you put out one fire another one seems to start? It seems like when we are not dealing with chaos we are creating it. We create it in the roads we build, the ideas we try to garner support for, and in the relationships we live with. It seems to me that a lot of people are happier when they are surrounded by chaos. It gives them fires to put out, even when they might be better to let burn out themselves instead. Sometimes, even the answer to chaos is chaos. Sort of like the old saying, fight fire with fire. Maybe the answer to beating chaos is to not care. If you don’t care about anything then nothing can be chaotic.
How to celebrate – Look for all the chaos in your life. Learn how not to create your own chaos. Accept chaos as a norm, then it’s not chaos anymore.
