Are you a carrot an egg or a bean?

I read a post on FB, that has provoked a thought in me. So a grandma put three pots of water on the stove, she brings each to a boil. She puts a carrot in one, an egg in one and a coffee bean in the last. Once they are done she explains that all three items were placed in boiling water and in life you can become one of the three. The carrot when removed is soft and can be smashed very easily, the egg though it looks the same has become hard on the inside, and the coffeebean. It transformed the boiling water into something delightful.
So, this had me thinking. I always laugh and say I Caine from the land hard knocks. Even though I strive to be the coffee bean, in all honesty I have become the egg. I may look the same but I'm hard on the inside. Being tough is what keeps me functioning.
What about you, are you a carrot an egg or a bean?

Well I used to be an egg.  things got really difficult and I became a carrot.  But I'm striving to become a bean.
