The Popcorn Story

I've told this story a few times lately, so I thought I'd share it here.

A couple of years ago, I bought some microwave popcorn. I don't eat popcorn often (um, except for at the movies), but occasionally I like it, and this particular microwave popcorn came with a cheese topping.

One night while Wanda was at work, I decided to try the popcorn. I microwaved the popcorn, poured it into a mixing bowl, and sprinkled on the cheese topping, then I sat down to enjoy my treat.

I took a piece, and ... it wasn't very good.

I tried another couple of pieces. They were even worse. I decided I wasn't going to eat it, put the bowl on the counter, and went to bed. An hour or two later, Wanda got home.

When I got up in the morning, the bowl was empty. I thought "hmm, maybe it was just me. Wanda apparently liked it."

Then Wanda got out of bed, and said "That popcorn was awful!"

But ... she ate the whole bowl.


  1. We can assume Wanda was hungry! My husband has done he exact same thing.

  2. I'm laughing at how familiar this is. I've eaten food that wasn't even decent, just because I was hungry enough not to care, or because it was there. Now if I decide I'm not going to eat something, I throw it out. I can easily see something like this happening at my house too!
