My teenage daughter and I were sitting at the kitchen table, eating lunch. We each had a bag of potato chips. When it was time to eat them, I opened mine very nicely by separating the top seal. It was neat, clean, and quiet.
Then there was my daughter. She placed the bag on the table, took the palm of her hand, and whacked the thing as hard as possible. It made a huge popping sound as chips spewed out the bottom, across the table.
"Really?" I asked.
She laughed. "Yes. That's how you open a bag of chips!"
I shook my head. "Did you not see my demonstration three seconds ago?"
"Mom, that's not how real people open their chips. Everybody smashes the bag. We do it all the time in school!"
"And do you get in trouble?"
"Then maybe you should try opening the bag like an imaginary person!"
Now, for the Bubba question of the day: Shady Dell Knight wanted to know if Bubba likes Bubba Burgers. (Yes, there is a brand of hamburgers called, "Bubba Burgers.") When I posed the question, he gave me a funny look. "No, I don't like Bubba Burgers!"
This shocked me. "Why?" I asked.
"Because I don't like things that are named after me!"
My reaction must've looked a little strange, because he busted out in a huge grin. "Of course I like Bubba Burgers. They're delectable!"
I have a couple more questions for Bubba. I'll give his answers in the next posts. If you have a question for Bubba, feel free to put it in the comment section.
