Do you always pick the best?
The eggs above were laid by local chickens this morning and as fresh as they can possibly be. Below are eggs laid yesterday morning, and by most standards are equally fresh.
The big question is, which eggs will you use first?
I picked up the eggs laid today to make an omelette with fresh herbs and goat cheese, and my partner James said “aren’t you going to use the ones you got yesterday first?” and I said “No, because I always want the best” and he said ” but you will be eating old eggs in a few days” to which I replied, “I will always be eating the very best I have!”
My mother and I had the same discussion over many years using a bowl of apples as the example. I always picked the best one and she always picked the one that was about to go bad. My argument was she was always denying herself the best by picking the worst, or the second best.
Now apply this to life….. do you always pick the best?
