That popcorn would have been So Good.

Current Events at the Country House (true story). So, after a long afternoon in the shop with the heater on and greasy tools in hand I made it to the house just in time for supper. Mrs. Kathy was just getting in from the barn having fed the horses and barn cat. More importantly she had a big dutch oven of gumbo simmering on the stove, rice was ready and my bowl was waiting.

After laying on a bit of Slap Ya Mama and eating more than I should, I sat down in the good recliner and kicked back. Just as she was about to set down, I say "Honey, would you pop some of that good Amish popcorn". Not a word. She pivoted around and popped up a small pot. Then buttered and salted it just right, put it in a bowl and was just about to hand it to me saying "You Know You're Spoiled". My unfortunate and not fully contemplated reply "Yes Ma'am, would you get me a beer before you sit down"?

Man, that popcorn sure did smell good.

Not sure if you got the popcorn or both the beer and the pop corn.. but me having two sisters marrying Arkies ,,I have wittnesed there is someithing about Arkansas wives that make Arkansas men take notice .. of how much control they have over their men folks ,, this is all good though as cooking the meals has a lot of power over husbands and most all Arkansas women are very good cooks . I bet you came out all right after all Ron.. fun story to read..

First of all, "Thanks" for all the kind thoughts in regards to my well being! Now for the rest of the story as PH would say. Luckliy the bowl of popcorn was poorly aimed and with a slight head shift it was only a glancing blow.

As the bowl rolled to a stop and the popcorn quit sliding across the floor my brain shifted into that lighting fast fight or flight mode. I quickly considered my options. My first impulse was to comment "so, am I getting my own beer?". I quickly realized that wasn't a good idea. My second thought was to ask out of sincere concern due to all Mrs. Kathy's hard work around the place, "you want me to clean that mess up?" Once again, divine intervention stepped in and I said nothing, just got up, grabbed a dust pan and broom and cleaned up the popcorn spill.

I did windup getting my own beer. A lesson learned long ago, full beer cans hurt and leave long lasting marks!

Older but obviously no wiser,
