Double Egg Yolk Was An Epic Failure

Life can sometimes set you up to something you thought would be all that great, but in the end, turned out to be crap.

For example, since I didn't like the pork asado my mom prepared for dinner (I just don't like pork and my family is used to me preparing a different dish for my eating), I ransacked the fridge to find a frozen beef patty, microwaved it, and put it on top of my bowl full of steaming rice.

I thought the singular now cooked beef patty wasn't enough, I took an egg, put some oil on my frying pan, turned on the stove, waited for the oil to heat up, cracked my egg on the flat and cold marble tabletop, and poured the contents of the egg on the now heated oiled up frying pan.

I thought it was one of your normal eggs but no, it was a double yolk! I eat eggs around 4 times a week. Four weeks constitute a month, which means I get to consume 16 eggs every month. If a double yolk comes after every 100 eggs, it means that in every 6 months and 2 weeks will I get the next chance to have another double yolk. And double yolks evoke a certain kind of excitement and feeling of luck to whoever person gets to crack one open. I thought I was in gustatory heaven!

However, as soon as the second yolk touched base with the frying oil in the teflon frying pan, it broke. Like a glass filled with water that fell onto the floor, my second yolk just spilled over the now white (courtesy of the cooking egg white) frying pan. Feeling dissapointed, I told my mom "Ma, I had a double yolk...only the second yolk broke loose and spilled over the egg white."

Life can sometimes be unfair with the predicaments it give you. You sometimes thought you stuck paydirt but no, it was actually a kick-in-the-butt waiting for you. What else should be done to compensate for it?

Crap happens, live with it. Besides, out of every 100 single yolks comes that one double yolk opportunity that would bring the lucj you have been waiting for in life.

It might be a good analogy but Jerick here in Saudi Arabia you can buy a tray of double egg yolk at low price than the normal egg.

I bought last month and I spoiled 5 pieces because I did not consume them on time.

thanks for the comment @edward!

well, continuing with my analogy, like the double egg yolks in saudi arabia, life can sometimes be so fruitful that we sometimes forget to enjoy all of them (thus the spoilage).

sometimes, we had to be a lot more wiser to use the blessings and the good life we've been given cos we may sometimes be to late to remind ourselves to put these blessings into good use.
