A conversation at work:
“Someone should make a popcorn cookie,” I announced.
“Hunh. I’m not sure if that sounds good. I can’t tell if I like it or if I’m offended.” said Ashley, our intern.
“It would be awesome. Think about it, people love cornbread, even more when it’s all sweet. Why not a buttery shortbread cookie with the soft crunch and taste of popcorn?” I said. Mmmm, salty, buttery, and sweet. Trifecta.
“Yeah, I don’t know, would that even work? How would you even begin to combine them?” asked Minh, our SEO guy.
I pushed my chair back and stood. “If they can fry beer, then they can make a popcorn cookie!” I declared.
[In my mind, applause ensued. In reality, not so much. Just some giggles.]
