Egg on My Face

Despite the telephone ringing, despite the butler telling me I had email, I managed to cook two perfect eggs for my dinner. But — there’s always a but — the toast never popped. Did you know that the machine has to be plugged in? It does. If you don’t plug in the machine, you don’t get toast. Who makes all these stupid rules, anyway?

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. I don’t know and I agree with you. Of course, my ever so sensible sister would laugh and tap her head, but I don’t care.

  2. Hi Quill….well better than what I always pull, I always burn the toast. And the cheese sandwiches… kids think that is the way it is supposed to be they get it burnt so often.

    I made Nick a chese sandwich and he said, gee this sandwich tastes funny, I told him, Oh for once I didn’t burn it……haha

  3. Oh, OUR toaster has a little built in reminder about that! If you don’t plug it in, the bread won’t stay DOWN! So I am reminded each time that I try to push down the doohickey and it pops RIGHT back up, that I NEED to plug it in! Works like a champ! LOL!
