I'm one of those people that can't buy a carton of eggs without opening up the lid. I'm not just checking for cracked or broken eggs. I'm standing there wiggling every single one out of the dozen. I never buy eggs without thinking of my mother. She's the one that told me years ago. "If you're going to buy the eggs, open up the carton and wiggle them to make sure they aren't cracked on bottom and stuck to the carton. You can't use them if they are stuck because you'll break the egg getting it out of the carton." I swear to you on times that I've been in a hurry in the grocery store and haven't taken the time to wiggle the eggs after making sure they had no surface cracks, I ALWAYS end up with an egg stuck to the carton which won't come out of its slot until I break it out. In moments like that, I think, "I should have listened to my mother!"
Imagine my surprise when I opened a carton of eggs recently and saw this:
I debated blowing this egg out and saving it somehow, but I decided it wasn't worth the trouble. I cracked and cooked it. Hopefully I didn't ruin my good luck. ;)
