Sunday 160 - War?

The explosions started slowly
then came in rapid fire succession,
bursts echoing in our ears.
When all was quiet,
we savored our buttery popped kernels of corn.

An explosive narrative, MM.

Have you tried the ones where the popcorn is still on the cob? I haven't yet, but it looks like fun.

Thinks- I wonder how many of your readers will have to pop corn after reading this?! LOL

Hi,

I have taken up your challenge and posted "Commuters" this bright Sunday morning.

I want to thank Moondustwriter for see this on her Blog. I have enjoyed the others who have posted and commented here.

Love this popcorn "war" 160 today! So clever.

turtlememoir said...

it does sound a bit like war, I agree - if only real wars came to as definitive (and savory) an ending...

Dianne said...

WHEW, thats as close as most Americans will get to Egypt's riots....oh yeah, pass the bowl.
mine is finally up.
Happy Sunday Monkey Man!

Adsila said...

Yum, popcorn and the Superbowl..... a great combo!

kavisionz said...

Ooohh... loved the "sorny" twist!! Yummyyy!!!!
You gotta try roasting corn on the cobs, and then sprinkling some lime juice and salt n pepper on it!! You will dig it!! :)) It's a monsoon specialty in Mumbai (India), but I am thinking it'll be perfect for snowy winters too!

And here's my 160 for this week...

kavisionz said...

oops... I mean "corny"...duhhh :))

kkrige said...

Yum, great lead up. A tasty treat for you and us. I have a late 160, visited a few others already and am now off to bed. Thanks for hosting MM!
Enjoy!

Caty said...

A little late, but I've finally posted one :)

Shadow said...

love your twists in the tale.

Chris said...

I love the way you always make us believe you're talking about one thing, and I totally fall for it, until we get to the last line and you spring the surprise on us. You're so good it!

rosaria said...

So good to see you! Yes, our Oregon coast is the place to be; Portland is a great second too.
