'~`°•● The 10th Egg Principle●•°`~`


    It has been said in my culture  that the 10th egg laid by a chicken  must be corrupted or rotten  , have u smelled or taste it before ??Farmers  took this and generalized  it to be a principal in judging people and things  according  to it . So , if there are 3 brother   , 2 of them are successful but 1 of the 3 isn't . The  worst among them is a corrupted  egg  or simply  a 10th . The least beautiful  sister is a 10th . Actually  , sometimes  being a 10th is out of ur hand  it is something  related to the way we  look or  to our physical  features  . It is a thing  that u didn't chose  or made  . U were created  in this way  . However  , there are qualities  and skill that we should  require  or attain to be as those around us or at least  compete with them   . Don't be a 10th  egg  , don't be the worst  in the group  , class   , or work   . In any time  , or in anyplace  . It is likely that there is a 10th  around   . For instance  , the whole family are so kind but that  one , only that sister is their 10th   ,, such comment  is always  followed  my a laugh in my place . The whole  farm harvest  is great and tasty  , it is only this peach tree it is a 10th  and so on .
           Have u seen any 10th  around  u  ???my  dear EC friends ???? :) :) :) :)
Notice  / this is an arabic expression or idiom  ;) 


        Here is the poor rotten  one :( :( :(  .............................

I don't believe in such a thing, dear Rosemary.

Human are created to have plus and minus. Everybody deserves to get a good luck, and people must look for it. :)

Hi Rosemary! I agree with you only in two sentences: "It is a thing  that u didn't chose  or made  . U were created  in this way  ." I don't like to realize or to pay attention if someone around or me or anybody is... let's not walk around... This 10th egg is loser... Ofcourse he/she can change something in her/his life and became successful or just because of luck. But in this case maybe he/she never was 10th egg?
