I thought I read someplace that the word opsomania meant love of a specific food, but now that I've looked it up, it doesn't seem to exist. Perhaps I'm mis-remembering the word? Let's pretend that I'm not. Let's pretend that I'm right, and that dictionary.com is wrong. Good, now that that's settled, let me tell you about the opsomania that I possess for microwave popcorn.
Microwave popcorn is my comfort food. When I'm tired, feeling blue, feeling lazy, sick, or in need of a pick-me-up, I eat microwave popcorn. Not just any microwave popcorn, but Newman's Own Oldstyle Picture Show Popcorn® All Natural Flavor. (You should know the picture on the site doesn't look like the box I have sitting before me, I think Paul hasn't updated to reflect the new packaging for his popcorn products.) I don't just eat it as a snack, I eat it for dinner. The whole bag. Mmm…mmm…good. It fills me up, and I usually top it off with a glass of oj (Tropicana Pure Premium with calcium and extra vitamin C), and it makes a damn fine meal. I eat it about once a week, sometimes twice if I've got it around. One week when I was really feeling down, I had it three times for dinner. Why am I telling you this? I have no idea. Perhaps I am recommending that you have microwave popcorn for dinner as well. Especially if you want to be more like me.
