Popcorn Popping . . .
My kids and I pay a game every once in a while.
They give me a word or a topic and I have to find a song to go with it.
I have about a 98% success rate.
Granted some of the "songs" are actually radio/television jingles - but I do a pretty good job.
I never have been able to come up with a song for the word "waterbottle" -
but if you give me the word "popcorn" I will sing a song from my childhood.
"I looked out the window and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree.
Spring has brought me such a nice surpirse -
Popcorn popping right before my eyes."
It goes on from there - but you get the idea.
And what I saw the other day, as I walked to my car from my office where my day job is,
was a whole lot of "popcorn" -
On days like this, I am really grateful for my iPhone -
it has such a great camera on it!
And look at the sky in the photos - it's BLUE - with big, fluffy clouds.
After all of the gray and heavy rain that we have had,
I felt like my heart was going to "pop" just like the blossoms.
In fact - I fought an urge to skip to my car!
Ahhhhhhh . . .
And in the meantime - if you happen to know a song with the word "waterbottle" -
I would love to get to 100% on my challenge!
