How to Measure 1/2 An Egg?

I'm trying to cut a recipe in half.
Unfortunately the recipe calls for one whole egg.
How do I measure 1/2 an egg?
A large egg should be about 1/4 cup, or 4 tablespoons -- so if you beat your egg, you just need to measure out 2Tbsp of it for the half recipe.
You need the following materials: An egg, a fork, and a measuring cup with a halfway line.
First, beat the egg with the fork over the measuring cup just in case it spills.
Next, crack the egg open (still in front of the measuring cup) and pour in the egg to the halfway mark making sure you don't accidently pour in parts of the egg shell.
