The kernel that pops and becomes popcorn! Pleasure!! The grains that wouldn’t? Well, they risk the trash.
The popping sounds, the leaping, and hopping in response to heat are interesting to see. Also, interesting is the fact that the kernels pop at different times and not all at once.
Isn’t that sort of like life? We are ready at different times. Some attain goals quicker than others, don’t they? But no matter as long as we all get there, that’s okay. Right?
The Kernel Fact!
Popcorn kernel can leap up to 3 feet. The heat does get intense. Yikes! You want to keep the pot covered.
To everything there is a season,Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV
A time for every purpose under heaven.
Heat and pressure are uncomfortable for us humans and just like the grains, we’d rather hop off to where it is cooler and less stressful, yes? Also, notice how some of the grains do not pop, remain at the bottom, and become castoffs, failing at being popcorn. Burned!
Now, how are we ever going to look at this crunchy snack the same way again?
I don’t want to ruin the popcorn experience. Ever!
The kernel that would is popcorn
Popcorn is white, fluffy goodness. The snack could be buttery, cheesy, sugary, caramelized, or chocolaty. I make mine in a frying pan. No salt. Just like this! In case, you were wondering.
Yummy at any time of the day.
By the way, the kernels that wouldn’t or couldn’t pop can become compost. Right? But, maybe, they’d have been better off or happier being popcorn. Just maybe.
