Just read a poem by Steve West @zebra2222, "Scrambled Eggs" which got me thinking that different personality types might want their eggs done differently. Consider the ways an egg can be cook and the human character traits they might imply. 1. Hard boiled _ tough, cynical 2. Soft boiled _ softhearted, lenient 3. Scrambled _ disorderly, confused 4. Sunny side up _ happy, positive attitude 5. Over easy _ approachable 6. Poached _ larceny at heart 7. Baked _ intoxicated So how do you want your eggs? No scrambled eggs for me, the whites and yellow all jumbled Make mine sunny side up (for I am of a happy disposition) with edges slightly burn and crisp My OCD dictates the need for order and precision, that form and outline clearly delineated Image: Pixabay
Scrambled eggs for breakfast. Scrambled eggs for lunch. Eat them on a plate. Go ahead and have a bunch. Scrambled eggs On the table. Scrambled eggs On the...

Funny, where is an omelette which is my favorite? Never had baked eggs but sounds closest to me or the way I would want to be in this world. I make bad jokes. In serious I think I am more scrambled, unless someone comes up with one for omelette. I have OCD also, but only a side effect of my personality, but love the expansions of thoughts here. Very creative on both of you.

I like omelette but for purpose of this post, it falls under the category of scrambled eggs since it's also beaten eggs with added ingredients mix in. Omelette and scrambled would also share the same characteristic of a mix-up jumbled minded person. Glad you like the post. Thanks.

hard boiled, that is an easy preparation, with just a pot with boiling water.

@ridingbet _Me too. I might add the boiled egg on a tuna sandwich for a midnight snack if I'm still on the internet.

My favorite is scrambled egg. Then, sunny side up. I may like scrambled egg, but I am actually an orderly person and not confused . Though, I have a happy and positive attitude in life.

Any will do actually. Sometimes, when I'm sure about the freshness of the egg, I take it raw. From your list, definitely and positively baked!

@allen0187 _You're a fitness buff? Never liked raw eggs even if I am a health nut. The risk of salmonella should be taken into account.

@josie_ I know. Good thing I have a friend who owns a chicken farm. I get the freshest batch of eggs from her.

Boiled egg that is not hard boiled and nice and soft in the Centre of it. That is how I actually like them.

@lovinangelsinstead21 _That would be the ideal boiled egg for me if only I can calculate the precise time to take it out of the water. I usually end up with a hard-boiled.

Oh that is truly funny. I don't eat eggs but I guess I would be soft boiled.

Nice poem, I like my eggs sunny side up, but I also like omelettes with several ingredients added to the eggs (mushrooms, chives, bell peppers).
