Most of us have a microwave oven in our homes for two reasons. The first, to defrost frozen stuff so we can cook it in a regular oven. The second, to make popcorn. Popping corn in the microwave isn't an exact science. What works for my microwave may not work for yours...
Prime seats right behind home plate at a Major League baseball game = a lot of money
Bucket of popcorn at a Major League baseball = also a lot of money
Catching a foul ball at a Major League baseball game in your empty bucket of popcorn = Super Sweet!
You ever wonder why popcorn and the movies go together so well? I thought it was because it was quiet and tasty. Turns out it was because it was CHEAP and tasty. At any rate, it's tasty. And by golly I want some right now!
