E is for Eggs

is for eggs.  Hard boiled eggs to be exact.  I like eggs, I love them as part of breakfast, especially scrambled, and have even been known to eat them whatever way it is where the yolks stay just a little runny and you can dip your toast in them while you eat the whites.  But I do not like hard boiled eggs.  Not at all and not in any form.
     I don't like the taste or texture or smell of them.  If they are cooking in the kitchen I will leave the kitchen.  If they are in my pasta salad I will pick them out or not eat the salad.  I will not eat deviled eggs either, since they are just hard boiled eggs whose yolks have seen the business end of a mixer and been adorned with a little paprika.  Fuck that shit.  Nope, I just won't do it.
     People think I am nuts.  They love the things.  And that's okay.  You can like things that I do not, and vice versa.  I am an adult, and I have tried and been around hard boiled eggs, and I just don't like them.  It is okay.  I don't have to like everything.  I am not out here rallying against them.  It is not like I am going to find out one day that my Baby Doll liked deviled eggs and I am going to be like "Fuck you and fuck your eggs.  We are through.  I am packing my things up tonight!"  Nope.  I am not anti-hard boiled egg.  I just choose not to have them in my life.  Like cosmetically tattooed eyebrows or a Toyota Sienna.
     So keep your eggs away from me.  Well, just your hard-boiled ones.  You should be excited anyway, there will be more for you.  And I, in turn, will respect your food preferences.  Isn't that what life is all about - working together to keep your gross eggs away from me?

Deviled Eggs are one of my absolute most favorite foods of all time. You're right, more for me!
