Sad Love Story Scrambled Eggs

  • 4 eggs
  • Oil or butter

Coat a skillet with the oil or butter and place it on the stove over medium heat.  Crack the eggs into the skillet and cook until the whites are no longer transparent. Flip the eggs, exacly as you would if you were trying to prepare them over-easy. A large chunk of the whites will end up on the stove top. If they burn, it will set off the smoke alarm. Try not to worry about it. Use a wooden spoon to sort of scramble what's left. 

Whatever. 

Serve the eggs with sourdough toast and a some freshly cracked black pepper. You hoped things would turn out differently.
