Scrabbled eggs anyone?

So, I am known in my family as saying some of the stupidest things imaginable. I don't know why, I feel that I am a fairly eloquent person, but sometimes I just can't say the right thing. Last night, we stopped by my parents and they were playing a game with Jake & AJ. It was late at night, and I was very tired, which is my best excuse. Anyway, we were discussing Scrabble and Shane was asking if anyone had ever actually spelled out the word "scrabble" while playing. My mom said, no because it's a proper noun and can't be used. I then replied, completely seriously, "Wait, you can scrabble eggs, can't you?"

Isn't it great that I'm a teacher?

Carrie, Carrie, Carrie!! That is hilarious!! I always thought my mom was such a ditz growing up. Then I had Kylee and I realized that you lose some brain cells having children. Now that I have three, I really don't have many left!! It was late and you have a child that uses some of that brain of yours!! :) You sweet thing you!

Actually you are very intelligent--Look what I just found:

"The verb "to scrabble" also means to scratch, scramble or scrape about: see Wiktionary:scrabble."

So you were right--you can scrabble eggs!!!!
