Exuberance is better than taste…

Did you ever know a kid who begged and pleaded to have a pony for his birthday? Every year? What is it with kids and their birthdays that make them want the most outrageous things? What’s wrong with a couple of good books or maybe a new sweater? Why must they ask each and every year for that one thing they really, really don’t need and probably shouldn’t have?

Yeah.

Who is not even a little annoying when I ask him what he wants for dinner?  POPCORN!
Every. Day.

And who actually said to me, “I’ll bet the other grandparents don’t have a popcorn machine.”?

I suppose it could have been worse, he could have really wanted a pony.

  3. Well played, CG Man. But I believe you may only be able to play the grandparents card for so long before it looses it's effectiveness. Sort of like Santa and his list of naughty and nice to a child. Still very impressive moves.

  6. Now all I have in my head is that song "Popcorn" from the early 80s. Do-do-do-do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do-do-do.

  12. I think it might be wise to delete the other Dawn's link to the blizzard machine...
