Popcorn Frenzy

My parents gave Rich a tub of popcorn for his birthday in November. (Terrific gift idea!) By the photo you can tell we certainly made a dent and that it was very much appreciated and enjoyed. But now that we've had it for nearly 4 months, it was time to say goodbye.

However, let me say this, the popcorn did not go without a fight!

I don't know what came over me, but when I opened this bad boy up I went to TOWN on the cheese popcorn!! I shoved in handful after handful like a maniac!! At one point I caught myself pacing in the kitchen; I was trying to convince myself to just put some popcorn in a ziploc so I didn't have to cram it in my mouth and could eat at a normal pace. But if I saved some I would have to eat it, so I shouldn't save any (hence the pacing).

It was crazy! After ~15-20 handfuls I wiped my then orange hand on a damp paper towel and threw the dirty towel in with the popcorn. Finally the hold the popcorn had on me was relinquished. I was free (and the popcorn was tossed out)!!
*Just in case you are wondering, while it was almost 4-months old, the popcorn was still delicious!!!

Hilarious!! You wouldn't believe how many times I've had to completely "ruin" food so I wouldn't eat it. One time, I turned the faucet on a bag of dorito's. Yep, I sat there filling a 1/2 full bag of nacho cheese full of water so I wouldn't eat them. Ok, I can't believe I admited that on the blogginverse.

ROFL! I did the same thing when I threw out *our* can of popcorn from Christmas! :-) I like Jen's idea of pouring water on it to avoid eating it. I need to do this with the remaining black jelly beans I bought the other day. xxx Janet H
