Have you ever been in a spot where you want to be happy for something working out for someone but you're not because the doing of it is ripping your heart to shreds? That's where I am right now. I found this quote online last night, but don't know the original source. I found it here: Could You Be My Answer?

Isn't it cute?

I found the usual transferring the yolk back and forth between the shells routine, but I also found something that I had never heard or nor considered. At first, I thought it was going to be one of those goofy videos the kids are always sharing with me where something invariably ends up in the toilet.
