Don’t Put All Your Eggs In One Basket

It’s one of those sayings that I understand but don’t understand.

I understand what it stands for- Don’t put everything you have into one particular thing. Don’t focus all your energy on one thing because it may not work out.

But the actual saying…why the eggs and the basket?

Did someone fall and break all the eggs that were in that one basket? Or did a robber come in and only had enough room to grab one basket and it happened to be a basket full of eggs and the next morning the family woke up and the eggs were gone so there was no breakfast?  I mean you could break all the eggs if you have 2 baskets…and I keep my eggs in one carton (literally). I don’t break them up into two.


Obviously I’m taking my emotions out on the eggs in the basket saying when really I’m just upset because I’m in that place. I put all my eggs in one basket and now maybe wish I would’ve put some of the eggs in an omelet…or an egg salad sandwich…or an outdoor egg toss with pals on a warm afternoon…or even another basket.

The good news is- the eggs haven’t expired just yet, they aren’t cracked, and I still have the eggs I just need to decide what I’d like to do with them.

The bad news is- Now I want to go to Waffle House and eat breakfast.

I’ll let you know how the eggs turn out…


Well let's see, Don't think I could live without Bacon, BritneySpears, Hair Extensions, Hallmark,& Ketchup. OH & wine. So I usually post about those things
