Popcorn.


I don't know about you,
but I think popcorn (mainly the the theater kind....) dripping in butter is
GLORIOUS.
I've always loved it.
For as long as I can remember, 
the soggy, buttery, salty, fluffy goodness has always tickled my fancy.
Something has happened, though.
A change has taken place in my body.
We went to the movies last night, and of course, I got popcorn.
My own popcorn.
No sharing!
I didn't just ask for butter...
I asked for EXTRA butter.
-cue singing angels-
 It was heavenly.
One buttery fluff by one buttery fluff, I consumed the whole bag.
I even sucked on the un-popped kernels that were on the bottom of my bag.

That's really nothing unusual.
I always do that.
Here is the new part...

I went to bed looking like this
(This is a normal size blow fish.)

and I woke up this morning, looking like this
(This is a miserable blow fish. This is what I look like, right now.)

I'm not joking.
My body officially hates me.
I've heard women talk about salt making them "bloated".....
My mom always said, You just wait, you just wait until your body starts changing.
I suppose my body is beginning to visit Old Woman Town...
the place where scary things happen.
The place where you go to sleep looking normal and wake up looking like a puffed up blow fish.
I'm not ready to live here.

Right now, my face is so swollen that I can barely see my eyeballs..
I just have little slits.
If Tyler looked at me right now, he would think I was typing in my sleep.


Do you have any scary stories to tell from Old Woman Town?

Oh my gosh. I was so afraid you were going to tell me that you decided you didnt love popcorn anymore... I would have cried. popcorn is like my food of choice.

Listen, this puffiness cannot be from the salt it just can't.. popcorn is too perfect.

but i am evil, and wished you posted a photo.

I wake up puffy every morning, it's really romantic.

Ughh, that really sucks :( Popcorn is literally my favourite food on Earth (possibly everywhere in the universe!) so I hope you can still eat it!

(HI by the way, I'm your latest follower ;D)

HAHAHAAH oh Autumn, I'm sure you didn't look exactly like a blow fish. You know, you at least aren't scaley! I love this. I do.

Autumn Ingram said...

I was un-puffed by mid day:)

Autumn Ingram said...

I know!! YUCK!

Autumn Ingram said...

Girl, I don't even want to talk about that!

Autumn Ingram said...

Oh no. Never. I love it too much. I will just expect to be a blow fish the next morning, no biggie.
I almost posted a picture...but I didn't want to cause nightmares.
Uber romantic. It may even cross over into sexiness.

Autumn Ingram said...

You're right!! I love that movie!:)

Autumn Ingram said...

Hey girl!
Oh I'm still going to eat it, don't you worry! I love it too much to give it up. I'll just have to get used to the blow fish look:)
Thanks for following me! I'm following you back!

You're right, Michelle. No scales. Or maybe there were. My eyesight wasn't the best, since I just had little slits,so who knows:)
