When you have egg on toast, as I did for breakfast this morning, why does the last bit taste the best?

I wanted it again just to get the last bit again.

It could just be that I start off with smaller parts of the egg in relation to the toast size, to make sure the egg lasts until the end, and then I'm left with a higher egg to toast ratio than the other bits but I don't think the difference is great enough to explain the sheer heaven of that last morsel.

Why can't every bit taste as good as the last bit?

I don't have time to worry about that. My difficulties are about covering a rectangular bit of toast with a roughly circular egg such that no bit of toast is left uncovered.
