Okay, I was sitting around watching the yearly broadcast of The Ten Commandments while dyeing Easter eggs, which is the closest thing I've got to an Easter family tradition. (The egg-dyeing part is all me, however.)
So, I measure out three tablespoons of white vinegar and pour it into a set of thirty-year old free promotional coffee mugs that came from the A & P. (Or was it Woolworth's?) Watching the little dye tablets fizz (my favorite part, actually), I'm planning out my egg-dyeing strategy. I always go with a purple egg first, and it never comes out looking good, ever, because the purple dye tablet is not actually purple but some weird red/blue hybrid, and I always wind up with a splotchy magenta-spotted-blue mess of an egg. (Back in the day, you always had to use extra vinegar on the purple tablet. I never knew why.)
Okay, the rubber band egg next. My old standard, but still fun. Then I start playing with the little invisible crayon I had hanging around from a previous kit. (The good folks at Paas didn't provide one in the kit I just bought...they're getting cheap.)
Then it dawns on me. Of course! I'll do a comic-themed egg.
And what comic book character looks most like an egg?
Yep. Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with Egg-o, the newest member of the Green Lantern Corps, and little brother to big planet Green Lantern Mogo:
My family isn't going to know what the heck that thing is when they open up the egg carton. And I'm going to feel bad eating it, too.
