Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1234: Peeling an Egg Whilst Driving

You ever tried to peel an egg whilst driving?

Today I was working on a music video shoot. I was there to get behind the scenes stuff and it was great fun, but I had to leave the house in a hurry to get there as I spent time making breakfast and that wasn’t a good idea.

I drove off and drank my COFFEE and ate a carrot as that was easy. Thought I could eat my eggs when I got there. However, as I thought more about it I realised it would be a better idea to eat the eggs beforehand. I figured I wouldn’t have much time to eat and I made the right decision as when I arrived it was pretty much go time.

So anyway, as I was driving there I eventually started working on eating the eggs I boiled. The first one I cracked by pressing down on it really hard. Eventually the shell shattered and so I had one hand feeling around and taking off the various bits of shell. It probably didn’t take that long but it felt like it took a while. I got there and I had my egg.

The second one I tried to crack by banging it against the inside of the container I had the eggs in and that worked, but the shell once more was in lots of small pieces and so I spent a good deal of time peeling that one too, which was not fun. Of course I had my eyes on the road and of course I had one hand on the steering wheel, but it did not feel safe and it’s definitely something I don’t recommend.

If there’s anything I’ve learned from this, it’s to just wait and not worry about that kind of thing. I didn’t cause any accidents and I didn’t get in the way of anyone, but I don’t think it was worth the risk. If I didn’t get to eat my eggs then such is life. There are worse things out there that could’ve happened and increasing the chances of those things happen is not something that I enjoy doing much, if I am to be honest.

The shoot was fun. There’s not much else I can say about it. I’m not sure how much I can say about it either, but it was fun and I enjoyed it and I hope it’s something I get to do in the future. It’s a nice challenge and it offers more ways of learning new things whilst developing my skills, so… yeah.

I can confirm that it  is much safer than peeling an egg whilst driving. In fact, I’d highly recommend it over peeling an egg whilst driving as you’re not controlling a vehicle that could cause some severe damage to someone when you’re taking photos. You could do some serious damage with a camera, but it’s probably more difficult to do so.

I hope it’s more difficult. Maybe it isn’t.

This took a while to write and I think it’s due to how tired I currently am.
Long day, but really fun and enjoyable.
