Somebody Stop Me!

Could somebody please stop me next time I order a large popcorn at the movie theater? I love popcorn. Which is the problem. It's the one snack I never get tired of, and it never fills me up.

Today about halfway through Harry Potter I looked down and our tub was almost empty. And I was the only one still eating it. Mimi asked if I would like a refill, and I actually considered it!

Truth be told, movie theater popcorn is my second favorite kind. If I want the best, I go for the air popped with real butter over it. And don't hold back on the butter.

Is it just me? Or do other people have a food for which there is no kill switch? No off button, whatsoever?

Tomorrow I'm going to have to run extra long. But it was worth it.

I had the same dilemma last Friday!! Jeremy got the huge tub and 3/4 of the way through it I had to make a concious decision to STOP!!

It's so tough when it's so salty and buttery....

lol....I completely agree. I was so glad when Harkins came out with the "free popcorn" when you buy (and bring/wear) the shirt. The shirt is $20, but I figure I make that up in the money I would've spent at the gym if I'd eaten the large instead of the baby free one. :)

Sounds like you have robot popcorn eating disorder or RPED. There is no cure.

Oooohhhhh, OK. I always knew I had a disorder. I just didn't know which one.

Becky and Heather, I'm so sorry about your disorders, too.

Have you used the seasoning salt for popcorn? My FAVORITE ever is white cheddar powder...and man oh man, let me tell time I'm at the theater I'm going to stash a bottle of the powder in my purse!

(I mean, MY bottle--not stealing the one from the theater.)

Hey Noelle F! Welcome to the blog!
No I haven't seen the White Cheddar, but I'm looking forward to stealing that and all the other kinds to try, too! (JK)
