The Egg Timer

>> Tuesday, November 23, 2010

My husband was reading online when he saw this joke and shared it with me. It was funny and kind of cute. The joke went like this:
A wife and husband was spending time together. The wife decided to make her husband's favorite, 12 minute boiled eggs for breakfast. She was looking around the kitchen when he asked "What are you looking for?" She said, "The egg timer". He started making advances towards her with that look in his eyes. He then lowered his tone and stated in code, "Let's have breakfast in bed". She stood for a second and started looking around again. Her husband looked confused and said, "What are you looking for now?" As she frantically continued looking, she said, "the egg timer".

Oh, my. The whole idea is that the same time to make eggs is the same time they will be "in bed". I think the timing was 6 minute eggs not 12 and that's the joke in the story.
