Pop N Fresh

My darling teen appears to be obsessed with Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn. I think she first discovered it at AJ's and since she realized that Circle K also sells the stuff, we seem to pick up a new bag every time we go to Circle K. Raise your hand if you thought AJ's and Circle K had the same popcorn distribution source. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

I was also not aware that popcorn was a major food group. In our house, it has made an appearance at nearly every meal, or replaced a major meal. This would be a prime example of bad parenting on my part. Yeah, whatever.

Since the teen's favorite pasttime is talking me into renting her scary movies, perhaps she needs an unlimited supply for her movie-watching. (tangent alert: Do you have any idea how difficult it is to locate scary movies that are not rated R? When you only go to redbox? Well, dang difficult, that's what.) Or maybe she is not fond of anything I cook, which would be a significant possibility if I ever actually cooked a meal for her. We are the home of self-service meals. Hungry? Make something. It's a useful life skill.

In any case, as I was throwing away the empty bag that I found
a) in the back seat of the car
b) on the sofa in the teen room
c) on the couch in the living room
d) all of the above
I decided that I really needed a maid. In theory, I have one built-in in the form of a teenage daughter. In reality, I want to hire someone who actually will do the cleaning without my non-stop irritating nagging, heavy sighing, and eye-rolling. Oh, wait, those last two items are hers.

I checked with my neighbor who has the best referrals ever, and I look forward to treating myself to a little bit of heaven. Plus, I am going to hire a maid. (She really does have great referrals.)

Now I just need a really cool craft project for empty popcorn bags.
