Total Maroon

After cooking my dinner tonight, I sat down to eat. It took about 15 minutes. I also sat around for about 10 more minutes before going back to the stove to clean up a bit. I'd left a pan on the stove, and looking inside, I saw this:
What is it? A glob of cheese? A well-seasoned egg white? A dab of butter, perhaps? No, my friends, for I'm way stupider than that tonight. It's part of my white plastic spoon that melted when I left it in the pan on accident. Oh, and I also left the stove on.
Although I was somewhat distraught at the tragedy of losing my spoon (I only have two other identical spoons, you see!), I did see an opportunity for...

PROP COMEDY!!! Wooo, I'm takin' a bite! Yeah!
What a maroon. Theme of the day, babies. Total maroon.

It's a fried egg!! This reminds me of a disaster featuring and easy bake oven and Andrea that still haunts me to this day. Melted spatulas can crush a kid.

It did look like an egg. Sunny side up, my fave.

your bangs are looking pretty fantastic.

Thanks, Lynn! The "egg" is sitting on my counter. I think I'm going to send it to somebody in an envelope. It's too great to just throw away.

I think reading this before I went to bed prompted me to have a dream about all the knobs on my stove melting off!

Also, thank you for consistently refusing to neglect an opportunity to perform prop comedy. Love, Sara and Sharkey

I think this is the beautiful beginnings of a flourishing fake food business.
