Included: butter, salt


For the family that likes popcorn. Really, really likes popcorn... Okay, wait, time for a sanity check. This probably makes no sense to anyone other than me. Here, this is what I'm thinking of:

See it? See it? It's not just me, right?

Huh.

Oh dear.

I'm going to go lie down in a nice dark room until this passes. I may be some time.

Don't worry, Sara, it's not just you. This listing is meant to evoke odd responses. From the description:

Subject features Hardwood FloorsIt's not so much a listing as it is a monitored test to psychological stimuli. Tell me, how does that make you feel?

"Um...No...I don't want the stove over here under the range hood. I think the fridge should go in that specific nook so that all my cereal boxes can be sucked outside when the exhaust fan is turned on."

Think how lovely it would be to cook by moonlight under that big ole sky light. LOL It's not just you, I see it too. Although I admit I looked at the floor to see if it was covered in popcorn then I checked out the ceiling then, aha! I saw it too. Kind of an ink blob test and I passed... well on the 3rd try. *ahem*

I saw it right away. Way back in the dark ages before people had microwaves this is how people made their popcorn.

I mean with small tabletop popcorn makers not with giant fridge-sized ones!

It's not just you! Now I've got a popcorn craving...

Sara said...

That's still how I make popcorn, Alissa. Then I put butter and nutritional yeast on it, thus betraying my hippie past.

ummmm..........little bit of a stretch here.

You make me so sad, anonymous. But Alissa's with me!

Only your mind would go to a popcorn popper.

Mine went to a coffee grinder.

I totally see it! Man, now I'm all craving pop corn ...

Vagaries of photographic perspective. Buttery, fluffy, crunchy snack vagaries.

I see it too.

My husband uses one of those, pretty much daily. (I hate popcorn, but at least the popper doesn't smell as nasty as the microwaveable stuff.)

Hollasa said...

OK... Now I want popcorn too!

Argh.

Charlene said...

On a completely different tangent...does anyone else get annoyed by non-matching appliances? To me it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Might just be me.

It has an "unwarranted family room." Huh? I suppose if you are single and don't entertain, like me, then a formal dining room would be "unwarranted," but I'm not sure about a family room.

And yes, I saw it too.

Oh, and by the way, before the microwave era, and also before the health food era, electric popcorn poppers had to have butter or oil in them. Much tastier. My hot air popper never quite makes the popcorn as crispy as it should be, so even with butter added it's just not the same as an electric popper or microwave popcorn. Maybe I just need a better air popper.

Before electric poppers, of course, you had to just do it on the stove.

STOVETOP POPCORN WITH A BIT OF OLIVE OIL, SEA SALT, AND SPICES IS THE ONLY WAY TO SNACK SALVATION

I totally got it. So either it was a pretty normal thought, or I am also a complete weirdo. At least then there are two of us.

I love the capitalizing in the listing. You can Spent Time with Your Loved Ones. and maybe even your loved ones, lower case. and if they're really special, YOUR LOVED ONES.

When I read your comment, I knew exactly what you were referring to without having to scroll down. My family had one of these poppers and we used it at least weekly, if not more often. In fact, it just occurred to me that the reason I no longer like popcorn is that I only get the microwavable stuff anymore. Hmm. Anyway, I was allowed to make it, and I just loved measuring out the corn and the clackity-cinks as they all fell down in the bottom.
