When my daughter was a newborn my Mom stayed with us and did a lot of care-taking and cooking. I discovered that years of living without a microwave had not dampened her spirit for using one. When reheating a meal, I asked her what she had done to achieve that perfect temperature.
“Oh,” she said. “I just hit popcorn, popcorn, beverage!”
Of course she did. I’m impressed by people who are undaunted by trying new things. I find that I’m kind of on the cowardly lion side of things when it comes to new adventures or activities. I want to be brave. I really do. But often my doubts and fears get the best of me. I admire anyone who approaches a new or unfamiliar activity with optimism.
Popcorn, popcorn, beverage. Sometimes it’s just that simple.
