Mocked by an egg timer!

Friday, August 02, 2019

I bought an electronic egg in Germany. You put it in the boiling water with the eggs and it plays a little melody. It plays a well known German tune, each of which is related to how hard boiled the eggs are.

If it were an English version of the same thing the tunes might be:
"killing me softly with his song" (soft boiled)
"its been a hard day's night" (hard boiled)

I'm not recognizing any of the German melodies, I'm listening to a new melody every few minutes. Only the last one was one that I recognized. I German carnival song about a guy breaking up with his girlfriend, telling her not to be sad, that all good things must come to an end. That's when I realize they've been in far too long, its over ... I felt like that choice of song was mocking me.

Yup, mocked by an egg timer. What a way to start my day.
