Right and wrong ways to blow an egg out of its shell
At dinner one night recently, one of the young men who had joined us showed us a neat trick: he blew a hard-boiled egg right out of its shell.
We had all been discussing the correct way to peel an egg. One kid mentioned tapping it on the table and using fingers. Another mentioned using a spoon. Then this one said he could show us the “best” way.
We all watched while he tapped the wide end of the egg against the table and began to peel. After he had made a hole on that end of the eggshell, he flipped it over and made another small hole on the opposite end.
