Finger the egg on its broad end, as the roundness lends stability. Keep the egg loose in the hand, not only to prevent crushing but also to keep from diverting the energy to the arm, where it is misspent. An end-over-end trajectory is best—an egg held on its broadside will, when thrown, act like a curveball, an unacceptable occurrence, given the intent. Aim somewhat high—the great majority of tossed eggs fall short of their intended target—and, without fear, follow through. The egg is up to it and your throw will be all the better. Wait around long enough to see the results, but don’t dilly-dally.
