"Setting a timer is not a sign of weakness.
Especially when boiling water is involved."
Fortunately this batch of over-boiled, burnt boiled eggs isn't mine, but mine looked just like this. Probably smelled the same, too.
Lesson learned? Always set the timer!
Even when you think you won't get distracted, you will.
