Most Eggcellent!

Today my little guy became a world record holder.  Really!  Believe it or not, there are world records for launching rockets with a raw egg in them and depending on how high your rocket goes and successfully returns to earth with the egg intact, you can rank.  Well...little dude set the record today for his age division.  I can only imagine how exciting it must be for him.  I always pegged him for wanting to be in the Guiness Book of World Records for something weird (or at least very uncomfortable), but I think launching an egg over 2000 feet high resides somewhere in between weird and normal, and it didn't hurt a bit.  Well, unless you count the poor little egg that he smashed to smithereens after the judge certified it whole and unharmed.

Me:  "I can totally picture you as a little old man telling your grandchildren about the day you became a world record awesome!"

Little guy:  "Why'd you say 'little'?"
