yeah, I thought it was a clever title, too.
I'd like to dedicate this post to a food item that once was a part of my life, but then I shunned it (overdose you could say), and now, I feel, it is here to stay.
"What food item could make such a come back?" you wonder. Well, my friends, it happens to be a little thing called POPPED CORN, or for the layman, (I almost was going to write "lame man", but decided not to do that) (here's what the definition is for layman:a person who is a non-expert in a given field of knowledge)----anyway, most call it POPCORN.
Now, for some of you, the darling children's song, "Popcorn Popping" comes to mind (speaking of, my mom created a RAP for that one time. Awesome). But for others, who, too, share a love for this treat, you may just be glad that I have hopped on the bandwagon.
Either way, I am here. No, rather, the POPCORN is here. And it is here to stay.
My family used to have an "Air Popper" when I was younger. I have since seen a few of them "popping" up at friend's homes. So, I was going to ask you, the audience of three, where I might be able to find one of these beauts. But, all's I had to do was punch it in to Google, and viola! I found one to purchase at my local Wal-Mart! So, I think I'm going to go get one.
I came up with a really complex equation. Just call me Einstein...
Air Popper = Healthy popcorn = Cheaper popcorn = more popcorn for consuming = happiness.
The period at the end of happiness meant that I was concluding the my equation.
So, there you go. The proof is right there (I also wanted to say "the proof is in the poof" --- going along with the pun of POPCORN. I am liking to capitalize every letter in the word POPCORN, because it is that special to me).
I could go on and on about the complexities of how miraculous it is that each kernel, when popped, is so beautiful. Seriously. Have you ever studied popped kernels? I think it is a miracle. Aaron might use a different word, but whatev. This is my dedication.
Anyway, just when you thought I had NOTHING to talk about...
There are really a ton of things going on right now in life, and I probably should be doing something a little more, how we say, productive. But, I just wanted to give a shout out to a healthy, fun-lovin' snack.
Three cheers for POPCORN!
Now for the mothers in my life, say it with a Dixie/Spanish Fark accent: POP POP POP Carn!
Oh, another note, that actually totally relates (mind reels...), is that we went to CORNYVAL last weekend (you need to check out the "official" web page for the event, it is a real gem. The happy corn pictured at the top is taken from this website). The event was great! More on that later!
Anyway, happy wednesday.
oh, and go pop yourself some corn.
you'll thank me later.
p.s. if you don't have an air popper, and don't want to eat the really buttery-not-so-good-for-your-thighs-microwave-kind, then go find Orville Redenbacher's new "Natural" line. The Simply Salted kind is pretty delish and good for you. ok. that is enough tips for the day. sheesh. what am I? some kind of expert?
