Have you seen the Popinator? Check it out:
A few days ago my friend Mary posted this on Facebook. I was, well, kind of underwhelmed about this exciting new invention. Our conversation about it follows:
Me: ONE piece at a time? No way! I have to stuff a whole handful in! The guys who invented this have waaaay too much time on their hands!
Mary: Yeah, but if you’re typing, you won’t get your fingers all greasy. Save the handful for the movie theater.
Me: I could never catch them…they’d probably end up in my ear or up my nose!
Mary: Hahaha! That’s what I was thinking, too! It’d be nice to have at the desk, but that’s the only place.
Me: I couldn’t possibly type and concentrate if I had to be yelling “pop” every two seconds!
Mary: Sure you could! And, wait a min…earlier today you posted something about cooking lunch and something else…you are indeed a multi-tasker. “Pop!”
Me: True, but I still can’t see myself typing, yelling “pop” and trying to pick popcorn kernels out of my nose and ears all at the same time!
Mary: LOL!LOL! No…b/c you’ll be catching those popping kernels with your teeth!
Me: I think that would take a certain amount of practice…like YEARS!
Mary: It looked pretty effortless in the video.
Me: Amy Duncan Yes, I noticed that! Ha! I’ve tried catching peanuts in my mouth before, and I never caught even one!
Mary: Practice makes perfect!
Me: Yes, and I really think I should set aside all my work and unimportant stuff like that so I can learn how to grab popcorn kernels in the air with my teeth! Sounds like a plan to me!
So….will you be ordering your very own Popinator soon?
OK, enough silliness for today…
