Yesterday was a very notable exception to the rule. I had some eggs that had been sitting on the counter for...well...weeks on end. They were from before the hens stopped laying, so likely mid November. I just never got around to using them and then I didn't want to use them because of their age. Normally, I keep our eggs on the counter and they are used within a couple of weeks. Contrary to what food safety experts say, it's really quite safe and has been done in Europe for centuries. Anyway, the eggs had been put by the garage door to be taken out to the garbage. A certain person, not naming names, had not taken them out for several days, even though he had said that he would take them out "right away." These things happen.
what greeted me on the rug as I came in?
Note to self: do not put bad eggs within reach of dog.
