Scribbled Eggs

Y and I went to brunch at Cacao today. I ordered the "Israeli" breakfast which includes two eggs, salad (small pieces of cucumber and tomato), soft cheese, a few olives, and bread.

I am working on ordering in Hebrew and I asked Y what the words for scrambled eggs are in Hebrew. He said, "beitsa (egg) mekushkeshet".

I asked him what "mekushkeshet" meant and he said as he made circles in the air with an invisible pen, "You know when you take a pen and mark on a piece of paper to get the pen to work?"

I said, "Oh! Scribble?"

"Yeah. Scribble."
