Itâ€™s one of those sayings that I understand but donâ€™t understand.
I understand what it stands for- Donâ€™t put everything you have into one particular thing. Donâ€™t focus all your energy on one thing because it may not work out.
But the actual sayingâ€¦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? Â I mean you could break all the eggs if you have 2 basketsâ€¦and I keep my eggs in one carton (literally). I donâ€™t break them up into two.
Obviously Iâ€™m taking my emotions out on the eggs in the basket saying when really Iâ€™m just upset because Iâ€™m in that place. I put all my eggs in one basket and now maybe wish I wouldâ€™ve put some of the eggs in an omeletâ€¦or an egg salad sandwichâ€¦or an outdoor egg toss with pals on a warm afternoonâ€¦or even another basket.
The good news is- the eggs havenâ€™t expired just yet, they aren’t cracked, and I still have the eggs I just need to decide what Iâ€™d like to do with them.
The bad news is- Now I want to go to Waffle House and eat breakfast.
Iâ€™ll let you know how the eggs turn out…
