My dear friend Dianna sent me word about the Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper after reading yesterday's post. I had read countless testimonials online about this popper but since it makes 6 quarts of popcorn I figured it was too big for me. She assured me one can pop just the right amount for one person.
She also said my hiker in the pavement pit needed a wider view for context, and that she loved my little intrepid hiker and thought I should do a series featuring him around the city. Quite right about the context, not sure about doing a series with him around town.
Well, I managed to ride to Jackson Square for a haircut before it rained, and even into the heart of the city to Crate & Barrel, where the Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper was on sale!!! I snapped it up. (I then rode about two blocks before I realized I'd left my sunglasses on their counter and had to go back. They were still there, hidden safely behind the register. Whew! It could have been a very expensive popcorn popper.)
It never did rain and I was all tricked out, ready for heavy weather.
I ate a light dinner just now and will make a big pot of popcorn later. I hope there's something good on TV tonight.
