Good for your hair! Ha ha ha!

True story. Happened a year or two ago.

Roommates decide to bake a brownie at 11 p.m. after dinner one night, perfectly normal for the general student class living together. Purely vegetarian roommate (the kind who does not ingest eggs and does not know how to break them either, although eggs as soluble ingredients in food like cake and brownie are fine) is being helped by other roommates breaking eggs for her to put into the ready-made brownie mix and batter.

Vegetarian roommate (cheerfully): “Do you know? Egg whites are good for hair!”

Other roommates nod and murmur their agreements at first.

Then the other roommates start to notice the object that she is holding in her hands and referring to when she says, “it is good for hair”.

Vegetarian roommate (continuing gleefully): “You make a soufflé kind of thing out of these egg whites, apply it to your hair and then wash it off. It’ll make your hair shine!”

The others cannot believe their eyes and ears now. They begin to have disturbing visions…

So they ask her: “What exactly do you mean by ‘egg whites’?”

“These of course! These are egg whites”, says she, merrily … holding up none other than … the broken white eggshells!

Imagine the hilarious scenario of whipping up “the mistaken egg whites”, applying the tiny broken pieces to hair and washing them off (actually attempting to), to get shiny (?!) hair!

The difference between white eggshells and egg whites is explained to an enlightened purely veggie roomie and soon afterward, the deliciously baked brownie and hysterical laughter over the mistaken identity fills everyone’s belly that night.

About Dancing Fingers Singing Keypad

This blogger is someone whose fingers itch to dance, coaxing the keypad to sing. For years, I kept saying that writing for me was a mere hobby. And then, just like the lead characters of a typical romantic movie it finally dawned upon me just how much I love this form of art and how I simply cannot live without it. And then we lived happily ever after ... or tried to, for isn't there the following saying? “Writing is torture. Not writing is torture. The only thing that feels good is having written." Originally from India, I reside in California, USA with my husband and little daughter and work as a software engineer. (I’ve got to be practical, the aforementioned love of my life doesn’t pay for food yet and it doesn’t hurt that I enjoy computer programming.) With the title loosely inspired by the Oscar-winning Chinese film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon“, this blog, “Dancing Fingers, Singing Keypad” welcomes viewers …err… readers to savor the performances of its “characters”.

    Haha! I had to turn on wiki for understanding the difference.. I thought that the egg shells become soft when boiled, and they become egg whites!
