The story about the egg who didn't want to be an egg

Resource Contents

She was an egg that didn’t want to be an egg because she didn’t know not to stand and not to jump and not to walk and all the time she was rolling and tiped over.

The egg met a ping pong ball-“we are so much alike”, she said to the ball.

We are both round and white, lets roll together, but the ball was so proud and shallow.

“I jump and I run and you just roll” He said and took a jump above the shocked eggs head.

Then the egg met a balloon, “we are so much alike” she said to the balloon.

“The two of us are round, Lets roll together!”

But the balloon was Full of him self and didn’t even want to answer the egg!

He flue up and far away!

The egg rolled on her own and thought to her self: “What can I do? What else can I try? What a strange shape do I have, It’s a complete disaster! Is it possible that in this big wide world I wont be able to find a friend?”

Suddenly she had a great Idea: She will get dressed up to something else!

So at first she got dressed up to a flower, painted her face in red, and add around her some blue leaves and walla!

“what a strange flower” said a little girl,
”Its plain and bold with no smell and even more so it doesn’t grow!”

“Its just an egg” Said to her one boy and both of the, disappeared.

Then the egg tried to get dressed up to a mushroom, the mushroom was a little on the chubby said it was defiantly a nice one.

The egg sat a side, a little worried, the other mushrooms looked at her in surprise and thought to them selves:

“This new mushroom has something strange to her, She has a hard skin and quite a large rocking leg…”

And so the egg understood that for an egg  to be a mushroom-is kind of tough!

And so the egg tried something new, she got dressed up to a pitcher with stripes and two handles…

But the cat that happened to go by thought to him self: “ What is this? Are you a pitcher? But you cant hold any milk!”

Shame! What can the egg do…

So, this time she got dressed up to a clown!

She put on a long hat with decorations, Put on eye brows, nose and… a laugh!

“You are not funny” she was told “we can tell  who you are even from far”

And so the egg try other kinds of costumes, like: a basket, a watch, a apple and even to a simple circle…But nothing helped!

At any time you could tell that it was the egg her self…”You are just an egg that like to get dressed up all the time” even the chicken recognized her strait away!

“Where were you, my dear egg? Ive wanted to sit on you ages ago…”

“Mother, I don’t want” said the egg “Let me roll around the world”

“Maybe at another time said the chicken, now act like the rest” and sat on her…

Suddenly the egg found her self in some kind of heat and darkness and knew that she had to wait, But for what?

“Suddenly, one day she felt that something strange is happening to her, some thing whas moving in side her…She was excited !

“Whats happening to me, mother? I'm no longer my self”! she squeaked

“Im no longer an egg

Of course your not, your at long last you –a chick”!
