There's a wonderful, beautifully written, precisely observed scene in Theodore Sturgeon's More Than Human in which a female character is cooking a male character breakfast, and he notices her spooning the hot bacon grease carefully over the whites of the sunnyside-up eggs to set them while leaving the yolks liquid.

Yeah.

Okay, so maybe they're on the Atkins diet.
