MANIC MONDAY - EGGS


MANIC MONDAY LINK


Last year after Easter I put my Easter decoration in their baskets in a plastic bag for the next year just like that, because the eggs in the baskets were anyway of plastic.

When I opened the first bag this year, a strange odor came out of it, something rotten, in short it smelled awful. I wondered from what this odor came from and even at a closer look I couldn't see anything. I touched the first egg, it broke and even more stinky smell came out and then I realized that I had completely forgotten to take out the real eggs I had added to the baskets and after a year in a plastic bag they had become rotten eggs !

As I am not in possession of a gas mask I had to take all eggs out like this and separate the plastic eggs from the real eggs but I didn't faint !




Even Rosie wondered about this awful smell. The dark blue one is a real egg.



Finally all rotten eggs were taken out and after opening all windows the smell was gone too and we could enjoy our Easter decoration !

Oh Gattina, YUCK! Rotten eggs are horrid smelling things, haha. My post today is eggstrordinarily silly, and barely anything about Easter, haha.

Happy Easter Manic Monday

Wow, I can imagine how nasty that must've been. Honestly, if it were me, I'd have probably thrown out the whole lot! Poor kitties!

I love your Easter decorations! Do your kitties leave them alone?

That's so gross. You are more brave than I. I would have run the whole thing to the trash and bought a ton of Fabreeze!

*LOL* This so could be ME!

Als ich klein war haben wir immer Ostereier versteckt... offenbar habe ich einaml nicht alle gefunden, sondern 2 ├╝bersehen. Meine Mama hat ein Weilche gebraucht, um die Quelle des Gestanks zu orten. Eine gro├če Bodenvase...

Happy Manic Easter Monday!

Happy MM! YIKES! What a rotten surprise. I'm glad you didn't faint...

As usual, my response this week to the MM meme takes Mo's word to a different place that is unique to the African American culture.

peace, Villager

Oh my Gattina. Rotten eggs do smell awful. Terribly awful. I'm glad you didn't faint though. Have a great MM. :)

Gattina, you won't do that again too soon, right?

Mo said...

Oh, that story made me smile!
Rotten eggs! Whew!
Thanks for participating in Manic Mondays!
Cheers,

LOL! And I thought I was the only one who did stuff like this!

Travis said...

Ooops! I can imagine how awful that smell was and how tough it must have been to get it out of the house.

Yikes!

Happy MM!

It's good you were able to eliminate that bad odor. You know how rotten eggs do really smell. Yucks! I admire your home easter decor. It's great.
By the way, if you don't mind, I tagged you. Come over and see what it's all about.
