Day 303: Kernels of joy

Scavenging for something to eat before leaving for the math lab this evening, I found the remnants of last night's popcorn. I ate that popcorn in the dark, watching a movie on my iPad (which, btw, still thrills me...that you can take a thin screen like that around with you and watch full-length movies on it). Although I got to the bottom of the bowl, I could not see enough to pick out the somewhat-but-not-fully-popped kernels which are actually my favorites. If someone could figure out a way to pop corn so that the kernels expand just enough to break their shell but no more, I would be their biggest customer.

There were perhaps six or seven morsels left and I feasted on them, slowly, savoring every delicious (if minuscule) bite.
