Will it go round…

I know today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Day. I pay my respects and send my love.

But for lunch today, I had the good fortune to have a popcorn ball.

popcorn balls It was part of a popcorn-themed gift basket that my brother and sister-in-law generously gave me for my birthday.  I fully expected to find different flavors of popcorn in the box, but the popcorn balls were a sweet, sweet surprise. Our family used to make them from scratch for Halloween when I was a kid.  I have burned my hands many a time shaping those popcorn balls.

Good times.

I just did a quick Google search — there is a National Popcorn Day in January, but no individual celebration for the popcorn ball itself.

Oughta be a law.

 

A kernel of truth

Did you celebrate National Popcorn Day?

I did.

For one thing, I created this nifty sign.

More importantly, I saw Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and ate nasty good movie popcorn.

This really should be a weekly event.
