I came back from a 20 mile ride (gorgeous day in Seattle today!) and forgot to drink some protein powder when I got in. I hit the shower, then sat at my computer and ate an apple.
OH NOES! I then remembered that I forgot my protein! But eating an apple and protein powder at the same time gives me gas. Dunno why, but there it is.
The only other source of protein in the house were eggs. But it's already been 40 minutes since the ride and I didn't want to wait another 15-20 for water to boil. Protein is best when taken within 30 minutes of exercise, correct?
So I wrapped a single egg in three layers of paper towels and stuck in it the microwave for 30 seconds on medium power. (Yeah I know they can explode so I though I was being clever and it wouldn't happen to me.)
But nooo, the egg had other ideas. It exploded with a loud bang, and slimed the microwave despite the three layers of paper towels.
I had to clean up the mess and then drink my protein powder anyway. My stomach is making funny noises and my kitchen smells like eggs. The smell just doesn't want to go away.
On a bright note, I have some pics from my ride and I'll post them as soon as I transfer them off the phone.
