For some reason, when I received this sugar egg
from my mother 40+ years ago, I decided not
to unwrap and eat it. Glad of that now!
When I decided to post a photo of it here,
I toyed with the idea of releasing it from its
four decades of polyurethane binding,
but decided not to mess with tradition, as it were.
As of today, this Frederick & Nelson ovum has survived
several earthquakes, a fire, young children, a marriage,
several deaths, cats, pollution, seizures, one lawsuit,
George Bush's presidency, four moves and global warming,
among other things.
