I’m not one for staring at people as they eat their breakfast in a supermarket cafe, but this morning I couldn’t help myself.
There were a couple who had ordered two English Breakfasts. They arrived, and the man started to move the mushrooms from his plate to hers.
Fair enough I thought, he probably doesn’t like mushrooms.
She then started to move (what I initially thought) her egg over to his plate. I then realised she was just moving the fried egg white.
He then started moving the yolks from his plate to hers.
I am sure that they probably think their behaviour is “normal” to me it was very bizarre.
After he tried to put a whole fried egg white into his mouth and half fell out, she didn’t bat an eyelid, I knew I had seen too much and looked away and focused on my cup of tea.
