On the 7th day of December


On the 7th day of December my true loves gave to me seven partially eaten popcorn balls.

A wonderful family oriented dessert with popping excitement.  Popcorn balls can bring minutes of fun and hours of clean up.  Unfortunately one of the popcorn eaters who is not a finisher of his desserts, leaves his partially eaten popcorn balls with all of the other uneaten ones.  It is kind of hard to tell one from the other, that is until it reaches your mouth revealing itself with a cold wet spongy texture.  At that moment you know that you have just willingly put an extremely snotty cold germ into your own mouth and will need to run to the bathroom and drink a pint of Listerine.  If that doesn't work, you know you'll have a worthy snot shooting opponent the next time you visit a Target store (see 4th day).

I love these December-day posts, and I can completely relate to the partially-eaten popcorn ball episode. It's the worst! I hope you're not sick for the rest of the month. :)

Merry Christmas!
