Literally walking on eggshells would require exceptional caution, incredible skill, and a sense of self-control that would be nothing short of amazing. Wait just a second . . . what if eggs were really much stronger than most of us imagine? What if nature’s design of the incredible edible egg was so perfect that the shell was strong enough to withstand the weight of your body? It’s time for the Walking on Eggshells challenge!
