An Egg or Twelve?

My daughter decided to let her neice help make brownies. The preschooler insisted she could do it by herself. She set out everything, including the dozen eggs. My daughter watched from afar as the child dumped the mix in a bowl and began to add the other ingredients. She helped the child get the pan in the oven and went to watch a favorite show. When the house began to smell like burned brownies, she rushed to check it out. The pan was overflowing, but was far from being done.

When the timer went off, the brownies were still not done. They set the timer for 10 minutes, SEVERAL TIMES. Finally, the gooey mess was removed. The youngster got the box from the garbage to prove that she had followed the instructions on the back. Yep, she 'read' the PICTURES, including the dozen eggs. Twelve eggs certainly give volume, but that bulk has to go somewhere. In this case, it made a stinky pile on the bottom of the oven and took days to remove the smell from the house.

"Why can't they say what they mean?" the girl asked.

I guess she's got a point.

I guess she went by the pictures instead of the written directions.  Cute story.

I can't imagine the gooey mess in the oven.  But I bet she never forgot it.
