Recipe for Disaster

Gather these ingredients:
one child, spirited, speedy, and curious
two parents, overtired and distractible
one Superstore, Huge and Evil
a million shoppers, firmly packed, slightly crazed

Combine in the Vat of Life. Mix well. Add a discussion between the two parents over which groceries are currently needed. Fold in an egg display, preferably at eye level for the toddler.

Cook for just about 15 seconds.

Yield: 12 individual servings of SPLAT!

Sprinkle with two parents who can't help but laugh, and serve immediately.

(Note: this recipe works well at any time of year, but is especially likely to yield results on a Saturday morning two weeks before Christmas.)

We had a similar experience when Mark and Malachy went back to the bathroom at Food Lion a few months ago.

When they returned, Mark informed me that Malachy tried to "set a baby bird free."

(Read: picked up and threw an egg on the floor!)
