Passion of the Popcorn

Don't ask me why, but one of my favorite things in the world is the 3-variety popcorn tin that you sometimes get for Holidays or when you're in college.

My roommate in college got these on the reg and it was always one of my favorite and messiest times of the year. Of course, this was before food became the enemy.

So, you can imagine my utter devasation when I walked into the breakroom today only to discover...that's right!...a 3-variety popcorn tin!!!

Unfortunately for the popcorn tin, it's 3rd variety was butter popcorn and not white cheddar popcorn, because that's definitely the best flavor of popcorn available. However, this is probably a pretty good thing for me as I am trying to be a waif this year.

Anyway, I just felt like saying it out loud would make it more real so that I wouldn't perform my 2-pieces-at-a-time-doesn't-count ritual.
Hopefully I can get through the rest of this day with minimal visits to the sacred tin. Plus, I didn't bring dental floss to work so this can only end badly.

Happy poppin' Friday!


  1. This was the first year that my mom didn't send me one during finals...she got mad at the popcorn company for something

  2. Noooo! They must've done something really, really bad.
