"I Ate an Egg"

An action by a young associate has found frequent mention in the sittings nowadays, including today. This person is working towards his doctorate degree in a difficult subject. He got a call from his father to attend a marriage ceremony that he was reluctant to do because of the obvious fanfare planned for the marriage. To be obedient he was advised to attend the marriage but not to eat there. He did the same but was also aware that he will be asked about the meal. So he came out and bought a boiled egg and ate it. In conversation with his father he was asked where he ate some thing. "Yes, I ate an egg," he replied.
