Emily had to do an experiment for Biology this week. It's one we've done before, several times actually, so we knew what would happen.
She had to take a fresh, uncooked egg, cover it in pure vinegar, and let it sit for a week.
What happens, as we knew it would, is that the vinegar eats the shell off the egg.
It's very interesting to see a shell-less egg, still in egg-shape. You can see right through that thin white membrane that always makes it so difficult to peel a hard-boiled egg.
I was planning to take a picture of it to share with you.
Instead, I have a picture of this:
The splat that it makes, as Emily tosses it from one hand to the other and misses.
And a picture of Emily washing the splat off her feet after she cleaned the kitchen floor.
