This is a story that is funny to me. Maybe not to you. It could be one of those "had to be there" moments, but I'll still share it:)The kids came across this round white ball in our yard a couple of weeks ago. We all thought it was an egg. It was perfectly round, white, slightly heavy, and hard on the outside. It has been really windy lately and a lot of times eggs get blown from their nests, so we searched for a nest around our home to return it to, but couldn't find one. So, when my family was here visiting a few days later, we showed it to my sister(she being the animal expert in the family) and she was like, whoa, this isn't a regular bird egg. We started playing around with the idea of it being an owl or duck egg, because it was so heavy. She asked how long we had had it and I told her several days. She said, well, its dead, whatever it is-lets bust it open! Joey and Taylor agreed. I was slightly horrified by the idea so I said I would watch from far away. I didn't want to have any part in it:) This was about midnight, so it was dark outside. It was also windy. Slightly spooky if you ask me...all I can remember is Tara using some kind of metal stake trying to gently crack it open. No luck. Then the voracity of her cracking became more of a hammer. Then it was like she was beating it to death. I started laughing so hard watching her hack away at this thing in the middle of the night with Joey and Taylor huddled around her. It looked like she was doing something really evil and against the law-LOL. It was late at night and we were just all delirious I think:) Then I hear, "I don't think this is an egg!" And laughing. And then Joey grabs it and throws it against the sidewalk. Hard. That image was hilarious. It made the loudest sound and even bounced a little, but nothing. No breaks, no cracks. It sounded like it broke the sidewalk actually. We were busting up!
Whatever this thing is, its indestructible. And did you notice the gray marks all over it? Thats from Tara's "beating." So, its not an egg afterall. We have no idea what it is.
Or maybe, as Joey has said, its a baby T-Rex. And it may bust out and eat us anyday.
