Is it Impossible?

Am I the only one that has noticed that it is darn near impossible to eat an entire bag of microwave popcorn without dropping or spilling at least one piece?

No matter how hard I try, at least one piece always seems to hit the corner of my mouth or fall out of my hand. Yesterday, I popped a bag before leaving work and was carelessly snacking away while driving to the gas station. As I was getting close to the bottom of the bag I suddenly realized I was on track to eat the perfect bag. I guess the magnitude of the moment got to me. I cracked under the pressure and dropped a piece. I watched it fall (seemingly in slow-motion) onto the seat. It landed with an audible "thud".

Maybe eating the perfect bag it is like pitching a no-hitter or hitting a hole-in-one. You'll screw it up if you think about it too much or try too hard. You might even drive yourself crazy chasing after it. I suppose it will happen for me one of these days...and I probably won't even notice.

K, I'm a fan of your random thoughts in the middle of your recipes. This probably needs to become a regular feature on the TKRC blog. Run it by the committee and see what they have to say about that.
