“It is very hot here in the laboratory today,” said Professor Edelamn.
“It has been a very hot summer,” said Mr. Egghead.
Yes it has indeed,” said Professor Edelamn . “Come up here on this table. It is time for me to weigh you.”
Mr. Egghead did as he was told. He was part of an experiment that Professor Edelamn was conducting. Mr. Egghead is a real live egg that can talk.
Professor Edelamn picked up Mr. Egghead and set him on the sale.
“Good,” said Professor Edelamn. “You are maintaining your weight. You are still 48 grams.”
Professor Edelamn picked up Mr. Egghead again. This time, he wrinkled his nose.
“Something smells in this lab,” said Professor Edelamn . “I think it is time to clean up this lab from top to bottom.”
Professor Edelamn filled a bucket with hot water and soap. He handed a sponge to Mr. Egghead.
“Take the sponge and wash the floor with it,” said Professor Edelamn . “I will wash down the tables and decks.”
It took them about an hour. The lab was sparkling clean.
“Now,” said Professor Edelamn .” Now, we have a nice clean laboratory. Let’s get some work done.”
“What smells in here?” asked Professor Lindley, the research partner, who was just showing up for her shift
“What are you talking about?” asked Professor Edelamn . “We just finished cleaning the lab.”
“Something smells,” said Professor Lindley.
“Impossible,” said Professor Edelamn. “Everything in this lab was washed down.”
Professor Edelamn looked over to where Mr. Egghead was sitting on the floor, close to Professor Lindley. He picked up Mr. Egghead and smelled him. Mr. Egghead was the one that smelled.
“Well,” said Professor Edelamn. “Everything was cleaned up except Mr. Egghead.”
Professor Edelamn took Mr. Egghead over to the sink and gently washed him with soap and warm water.
“There,” said Professor Edelamn.” Now, everything is clean.”
“That does smell much better,” said Professor Lindley.
“We will have to keep Mr. Egghead bathed properly,” said Professor Edelamn.
“Yes we will,” said Professor Lindley. “We have to remember that Mr. Egghead is a hard-boiled egg and we all know how much hard-boiled eggs smell.”
“Very true,” agreed Professor Edelamn, remembering the smell of the hard-boiled eggs he had in his lunch box yesterday.
|Moral of this Story: Hard-boiled eggs smell. Example: Professor Edelamn and Mr. Egghead cleaned the whole laboratory only to find out it was Mr. Egghead that smelled.|
