Popcorn Dreams

I must warn you that this is weird! Very, very weird! I seldom remember my dreams and if this is an example of what they are like, it is probably a good thing.


I am a little vague about how it starts, but, I was part of a research team and we were hooking up wires to various things and then to microwave popcorn to see what could make the popcorn pop. It was determined that a menopausal woman having a hot flash could produce enough heat to pop microwave popcorn! Then the scene changed and I was about to have a hot flash and said to someone, get the popcorn and I'll prove it!

Needless to say, that is when I woke up, as I was too hot to sleep anymore and had to throw off the covers.

I don't eat microwave popcorn, it is vile stuff and as I live alone, I have no idea whom I would be trying to prove this to.

I don't know what a dream interpreter would make of this, as far as I am concerned, I was just having a hot flash! It was so funny though, I had to review it so I could remember to post it for the rest of you to enjoy.

So, how about the rest of you, any strange or weird dreams you would like to share?

Have a good day all!

P.S. My English sucks today, I think "whom" is correct, feel free to tell me I am wrong.

"Get the popcorn, honey, I'm having a hot flash!"

Love it. Just love it.

I know the above is not a quote from your post, but if it were true and menopausal popcorn poppers ever became popular, then that would be part of the advertising campaign.

LOL! Just think how much popcorn one woman could pop! Too bad they don't occur on demand.

Oops. The Bag Lady meant to say:
She could supply a whole theater with popcorn most days - hey, there's a job for all us menopausal women...

As far as your sentence structure -
"I don't eat microwave popcorn; it is vile stuff, and, as I live alone, I have no idea to whom I would be trying to prove this." Which is really stilted. "I have no idea who I would be trying to convince."
Okay, I'm done now.

Thanks Sis, I changed it back and forth so many times I confused myself - not hard to do mind you...

Menopause IS a strange, weird dream. Pass the popcorn, please! ;)

Reb said...

Too bad it lasts so long Hilary!

When, Terrie, when?!

Reb said...

Terrie, I am hoping it ends the day after I stop taking the damned pills that are forcing it through at high speed.

That was great, Reb...way to make use of something wonky--I KNEW there was another purpose for this uterus. I'm not going to tell my hub about this one b/c he loves popcorn & I can just see him trying to attach wires to me down the road, then I'll strangle him with them b/c I'm pretty sure that goes with menopause.

Now if you could fry chicken...that might be worth trying :)

Reb said...

Jo, I think we could try to keep this a secret. I would hate to be considered an accessory to anything bad happening to your husband ;)

I will see if I can't dream up something for chicken, although, you have to be really careful with hot oil you know.
