A Dream Come True

Do you remember growing up in the 80's and thinking that these things...


...were the coolest thing in the world?

Okay, so maybe you weren't impressed by them.  But I was.  I remember going to my friends' houses and watching them make popcorn and wishing we had one of those nifty things.  All of our popcorn at home was made over the stove in a pot with oil and loose popcorn kernels in the bottom.  You had to shake-shake-shake that pan the whole stinking time, and if you weren't quite careful enough you ended up with the unthinkable: burnt popcorn.

Well, recently I have been wishing we had an air popper since my dear, sweet mother likes to give us bagged popcorn kernels.  Since I still get tired of the shake-shake-shake stove top method of making popcorn I thought this would be the perfect solution!

Apparently they aren't easy to find in the stores any more.  I can't imagine why.

After I had finally given up hope of ever in a million years owning this luxury item, I found it.  At a yard sale a street over, no less!  New, in the box, never opened, and only six smackaroos.  Oh yeah...

Popcorn, anyone?

Are you craving popcorn now? I saw on the news this morning about the tornados south of OK City and let out a sigh of relief. Love you all
