Stay in school

Several years ago while at the grocery store with one of my kids we opened a carton of farm fresh brown eggs.

Having never seen anything but white egg shells my child asked, “Yuck, what is wrong with those eggs?

To which I replied, “Nothing. They just haven’t been painted yet.”

“Really?” the response.

“Yeah, how would you like to be the guy at the factory that paints all the eggs?” I said.

“What an awful job,” he replied.

“Yeah, stay in school.” I said.

He leaves for college on scholarship next week. And yes. I made him figure out the eggs on his own.
