Overdosed


“Whatever you do, do it in moderation" Proverbs

I overdosed. A few days ago.  On popcorn......small yellow and white seemingly harmless kernels. Instead of supper...I ate popcorn. The next morning....had some more for breakfast. We went to an early movie so instead of lunch....I ate popcorn. By the time the movie was over...I wanted to puke. The kids picked up some popcorn and started flipping them at me telling me I have to start eating 'real' food. I grabbed a handful of kernels....chased my youngest and shoved a ton down her shirt. The fight was on...except I had eaten so much popcorn....I felt really ill. 

I don't want to eat popcorn ever again...I don't want to see it...or even hear it pop....except there's one small problem....I love it! 

Can anyone relate?

I love movie popcorn the best, but have finally gotten to the point where I can pass on it when I go to a movie.
Too much fat for moi.

BUT - I do love it.

I used to love it but until one time, I almost choked with the husk? I stopped eating then and looking at popcorn was never the same for me...

Hi Sarah,

I'm like that with chocolate; I never seem to get enough. My wife is the one who loves popcorn and for her, there's always room for popcorn.

I miss popcorn. Ever since I got braces put on 6 months ago I haven't had any. I can feel the buttery goodness in my mouth!

Denise said...

lol, yes, I love movie popcorn.

Lisa said...

I think popcorn is one of those foods that you can't wait to eat, then after eating too much, you never want to see it again...until the next time. And the cycle continues...LOL

Have a blessed week!

Grace said...

LOL! That's hilarical!
I don't eat popcorn because it gets stuck in my teeth and I don't like that. But I will tell you that after my stomach virus last week - it will be a long long time before I will eat mexican food again!

I ALWAYS eat too much popcorn and I ALWAYS feel sick because of it. Why is that?

I LOVE popcorn!!! ...'cept I have been scared to eat it since I chipped a tooth a couple of months ago on a kernal....I would kiss the feet of the person who figures out how to make them all pop without burning the rest... :)

When we were in India at the Kulpahar Kids' Home we had an early afternoon tea and then for dinner it was popcorn and apples every night. Now when I think of popcorn I think about that. It brings back happy memories.

Mmmm... I really love it with butter! :0) But I rarely eat it, so when I get popcorn it's a treat!

Popcorn chase with the kids sounds cute. Besides of that I am not big on it. I however love chocolate, The really expensive Beligian dn HUnagrian one. This sensation, the texture, teh scent-----all my senses are on overdrive. STill I reduced it drastically for some time now. Not too much, not too less. Balance is possible even with chocolate. Latest since I have 6lb more on my hips ;-)))

Wishing you much more fun and cheer...:)

Oh, ugh. I have. Not with popcorn, but I know just what you mean, because I have no willpower when it comes to something yummy. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog! It's great to connect.

Deb said...

Yes, I can relate.

For me, it's chocolate. Like I love it. But I have an almost zero tolerance for anything with caffeine.

And chocolate, of course, has caffeine.

Caffeine wires me...keeps me awake for hours.

I'll even skip dinner just so I can have chocolate.

Then I can't sleep.

Guess I'd rather get my fix than sleep.

Sort of sick, I know.

Sweet dreams.

Precious, passing by to show some love. Wishing you a peaceful weekend. Hugs, mill of them. Paula xxx
P.S: I will try to make knish tomorrow!

I've been addicted to McVites digestive biscuits! I would dip them in my coffee and have them every night. I hate it becos it makes me put on weight, not sure why but McVites has quite high calories. But I just love them, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside when I eat them. It reminds me of my younger days. Guess I will have to get my butt moving more often to lose those calories. Yikes.

I am not a popcorn person - I always seem to get a kernel stuck in my gum or throat... but I love the taste.

Love to you -
