Anyway, a couple weeks ago my friends went out of town and asked me to watch their place, bring the mail in, etc. I said yes (as always) and took care of things while they were gone. Well they always give me something as a thank you for being such a good friend and watching their house. This time it was popcorn on the cob, odd but cool. It was so funny when they gave it to me too, because I went over there last Wednesday to have him look at my laptop, I couldn't get the top cover off to look inside to fix my monitor, so I asked if he'd take a look at it. So while we were all sitting behind the table on their deck, she excitedly had me open my gift. I knew there was a reason she was so eager to have me open it, so I went into the house and brought it out.
It was a vacuum packed popcorn on the cob. When she was telling me how cool it was and thought I'd like it, I said "Let me guess, you got one too". She laughed and said yes. Now I knew why she was so eager for me to make it first, she wanted me to be the guinea pig. lol Well I went home with a CRT and my laptop, after a couple hours, along with the popcorn on a cob, and showed it to my mom. Of course miss addicted to popcorn wanted me to make it that night. So I did. I did it according to directions, but since we're still getting used to the new microwave, I made the mistake of taking it out at 2 minutes, which caused half of them to burn. :( Oh well, what didn't burn was still good. I would definitely get that for a friend as a fun little gift.
A few pictures, sorry about the quality, I couldn't find my digital camera so I had to use my cell phone.
|This bag came with the cob, I thought it was just instructions, until I opened it up.|

|cob and all. I know, mostly burnt but still a fun thing to do. If I ever do this again, I might not use a bag, but instead a bowl, so I can watch them pop. :)|
