One thing I have learned in the US is that scrambled egg are pretty boring. I know I can still go with an omelet, but many people are scared to prepared it because of an extra involvement to keep it intact and beautiful. Scrambled eggs are classic. Kids in my part of the world (well, the ones who like to cook) learn to make them right after they learn how to make tea. This was my case too. My parents were working, so when I came home from school and there was a boring lunch, I just scrambled myself some eggs.
