POPCORN...FIRE...FUNNY

THIS LAST CHRISTMAS WHEN WE WERE IN UTAH STAYING WITH MATT AND KELLY, LORA ASKED HER DADDY TO MAKE HER SOME "REAL" POPCORN..
WELL OF COURSE HER DADDY SAID YES DEAR... BART WAS COOKING THE POPCORN IN KELLY'S PAN... WHICH WAS QUITE A BIT SMALLER THAN OURS. HE PUT IN THE SAME AMOUNT OF POPCORN AS HE DOES AT HOME IN OUR LARGER PAN.. WHEN THE LID STARTED POPPING OFF THE PAN, HE PICKED UP THE PAN TO DUMP THE POPCORN INTO THE LARGE BOWL.. WHEN HE DID THIS, SOME OF THE POPCORN FELL ONTO THE STOVE TOP, WHICH IS GAS, AND CAUGHT ON FIRE.. THE REST OF US WERE WATCHING THIS FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COUNTER AND MY CAMERA WAS HANDY. SO I STARTED TAKING PICTURES.. SOME ARE KIND OF BLURRY DUE TO THE FACT THAT I WAS LAUGHING MY GUTS OUT.. HE THEN TRIED TO MOVE THE POPCORN THAT WAS ON FIRE WITH SOME KIND OF UTENSIL AND JUST MADE IT WORSE.. SO HE PUT THE PAN BACK DOWN AND WAS GOING TO TRY TO CLEAN UP THE FIRE AND IN PICKING UP SOMETHING OFF THE COUNTER HE ACCIDENTLY GRABBED THE UNUSED POPCORN BAG SPILLING THE UN POPPED CORN ALL OVER THE COUNTER AND FLOOR... SO NOW WE HAVE POPPED CORN AND UN POPPED CORN ALL OVER AND A FIRE UNDERNEATH THE PAN THAT IS STILL POPPING POPCORN ALL OVER BECAUSE HE DID NOT PUT THE LID BACK ON IT.. EVERYTHING HE TRIED ONLY MADE THE PROBLEM WORSE... US GIRLS WERE LAUGHING SO HARD WE COULD NOT EVEN TALK... IT WAS TO FUNNY.... WATCHING BART POPPING THIS POPCORN WAS THE FUNNIEST THING... HERE ARE THE PICTURES OF THIS ADVENTURE THAT BART TOOK US ON WITHOUT EVEN LEAVING THE KITCHEN... THANK YOU HUN FOR MAKING LIFE SO MUCH FUN.... :) KELLY WILL BE FINDING POPCORN IN HER HOUSE FOR YEARS... IT WAS EVERYWHERE... SORRY KELLY...!! BUT YOU HAVE TO ADMIT... THE POPCORN WAS FANTASTIC... EVEN THE BURNT ONES... HAHAHAHAHA

Yes I think they do... But when I ask for POPCORN, I get microwave popcorn... When LORA asks she gets REAL popcorn... :)

That is a story that will be told for YEARS around dinner tables and get togethers! Funny, Funny!!

I tried to call you, but I think I may have a wrong number or I may be confused. Did you change it? Can you e-mail me your phone number please? My e-mail address is elisefranklin13@yahoo.com. Thanks so much! Dan wants to HT and Lisa and I want to see you, too! Hope you are doing well!

YAY for real popcorn! YAY for this post--so funny! The love of popcorn must run through our blood or something. Kevin is always amused over how much and how often I can eat popcorn.
