Friday Fictioneers -The Egg Torture


Photography by Rodger Bultot


‘How do you want your eggs?’ the waitress asked.

It was our weekly routine. She asked, and I didn’t know what to say.

‘Scrambled, soft scrambled, over easy, sunny-side up, over medium, over hard poached,’ she listed all the variations in rapid speed –as always.

I had eaten a mountain of scrambled eggs, just because I felt too nervous to order anything else.

Today I felt rebellious; I was tired of scrambled eggs.

‘I want to see the sun shining please,’ I said with as much confidence as I could come up with.

‘Finally,’ she said with a grin.

I remember my first attempt to order fried eggs like it was yesterday. Learning a new language is not that complicated, using it, on the other hand, that’s a totally different ball game.

The Friday Fictioneers are held by Rochelle Wisoff-Field.


Happy Holidays to all of you!

  1. I was going to mention the salad dressing options, then I saw you covered it in your last reply. Usually, I’ll read the menu three times over and then order the same exact thing I ate the last ten times I visited that restaurant. Old habits are hard to break.
