My daughter had a few of her friends over, yesterday, to watch a movie. As is usually the case, she popped some popcorn.
Later, I came downstairs and saw the bowl of popcorn sitting on the kitchen table. It was half full, so I figured the girls were done with it. Since I was a little hungry, I decided to munch on some.
My daughter, who was still parked in front of the TV, heard me in the kitchen. "Mom," she said. "I'm so mad at Schultz!" (Schultz is our giant German Shepherd, for those who don't know.)
I put another handful of popcorn in my mouth and ate it. "Why are you mad at Schultz?" I asked.
"Because he ate half of our popcorn!"
I gulped. "You mean the popcorn that was sitting in this bowl?"
She turned around and looked. "Yeah, Mom. You didn't eat any, did you?"
(And I thought that was butter on the popcorn!)
