Fun Fact: When I was 8, I went on a hike with my mom. I found a rock that looked exactly like an egg and would not put in down even when we had to walk across extremely slippery rocks. I ended up falling with the egg shaped rock in my hand and completely shattered my wrist. That is the only time I have ever broken a bone, but I still have the egg shaped rock in my room at home. It’s name is Pebbles and it never hatched.
