What's the Best Way to Transport a Raw Egg to the Office?

Good Questions

Q: I really appreciated the recent feature about poaching an egg in the microwave. I am wondering, however, if my fellow readers have any tips as to transporting a raw egg to the office. My commute is about twenty minutes of walking, followed by a ten-minute train ride. I usually throw my lunch in a Tupperware container in a tote bag.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to package my egg so it will make it safely to the office?

Editor: Christina, what a fun question. It reminds me of that classic elementary-school engineering challenge of building a protective box for an egg dropped out a window.

Readers, what do you think would be the very best way to transport a raw egg across town?
