Saying no to popcorn

WordPress Topic #60  –  What can’t you say no to? BC Young said he couldn’t say no to popcorn. (

I love popcorn. I love the smell, the freshness and the sticky salt. I love the butter and the sound of the crunch so when I am at home I make popcorn and love it.  It is affordable and easy to make.

When I go to the movie theaters, I can’t bear to pay the price for my beloved popcorn. It’s tough to sit there and smell the wonderful treat but the high price and huge amount of popcorn goes against the grain. Most times a big bowlful is all I need and want before the butter flavor overwhelms me. So, I say no.

Chai Tea imageLast year I ordered a cup of Chai Tea since I don’t drink coffee. It was great! At $3.50 per cup I felt like a part of the coffee club. But, alas … I soon found my Chai Tea in a concentrate form (add milk and heat) and the entire container was less than $3.00. By buying the concentrate in the box, I’ll get 5 or more cups of the hot, tasty liquid. So, no more hot chai from the coffee shop. (Marilyn has an entire post about her wonderful hot chai tea that you must read…)

Is this strange behavior or do you find yourself following bizarre logic that makes others question your sanity?

  1. Popcorn is really good … I love it. One thing I have yet to try — and that’s going to happen real soon — is the Chai Tea. I’ve heard so many of my friends who are hooked on it, so next time in the coffee shop, I’ll give it a go.


  2. I like chai tea but save it for special occasions or when I feel I DESERVE a treat. Most times, I drink hot tea at home and hardly ever when I go out. It’s not the same when you get a cup of lukewarm water and one tea bag. Oh well.


  3. I don’t think it’s strange behavior at all! I would do the same. When I go out for a coffee I first check the prices somewhere before I order anything. It has to be really good for me to pay something like $3.50 for it!


  4. Hi Lian,
    So glad to know there are others like me out there. There’s always that rare occasion when I can justify the cost-to-pleasure ration but most times I’m too practical!
    Time to brew me a hot cup of tasty chai!
