I'm sure most people have heard the expression "It's so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk." Well, I was rather bored at work this morning, so I thought I would put that expression to the test! The high today was 97 degrees and anywhere from 102 - 105 degrees with the heat index, so it seemed like a good idea!
I telephoned one of my employees and asked her to bring an egg with her to work, which she did, although I think she thought I had gone off the deep end! Shortly after she arrived with the egg I, along with two other employees, stepped outside, cracked the egg, and waited!
It didn't take but a few seconds for the egg to start to bubble, but then the egg cooking experiment started to slow down. We left the egg on the pavement and went back inside to actually try and get some work done!
The next time we went outside we discovered that our egg had indeed cooked! It's not very pretty, and I doubt anyone would think of it as appetizing, unless of course they like crispy, dried up egg! But, as you can see, it is possible to fry an egg on the sidewalk!
