Why, yes, I did just order a new Stir Crazy 6 qt popcorn popper. Why, no, the one we currently own works fine. We just want to be prepared for a popcorn emergency. And, um, we want to be able to pig out on popcorn without having to transfer the popcorn to another bowl and […]
Haiku to you, too!
When I was in elementary school, we studied poetry, like most kids do. And we had to write a Haiku, like most kids do. I still remember mine (prepare to be astounded): Hippopotamus Why do you like gooey mud So brown and sticky? Catchy, eh? And on a similarly random note: When my oldest was […]
