Let me start off by saying that I love Redbook magazine.
But sometimes I don’t understand their articles. Or most of the fashion that is depicted. Still, I really enjoy getting my copy in my mailbox each month.
This article caught my eye and made me laugh.
Mainly because it basically told me NOT to do everything I DO when I go to the movies.
For starters, I always get butter on my popcorn even though Hungry Girl warns that this means my popcorn can be 1500 calories. She states that popcorn is already seasoned enough and that extra butter isn’t necessary.
No butter on popcorn reminds me of eating salted Styrofoam. Not that I’ve ever had Styrofoam but that’s how I imagine it would taste. I have to get butter. In fact, there are times when I say, “Extra butter, please.”
Hungry Girl would be pleased to know that I do order a Diet Coke, although she says that water is better. But water and popcorn taste boring to me. I must have a soda to go with it.
I do get the nachos even though Hungry Girl says NEVER to get them because they are apparently 1,200 calories. I don’t care. I love the nachos. I get mine with jalapeños. However, I usually get the popcorn OR the nachos. I rarely have both, unless I’m very, very hungry. Or PMSing.
I also bring my own snacks, but not nuts. I sneak in Sno Caps, because I can find them for a buck and I refuse to fork over three bucks at the cinema. I mix the Sno Caps with my popcorn for a salty/sweet treat.
Hungry Girl mentions that it’s best to share items bought at the cinema and…well, Tom and I usually get our own stuff when we go. This is because Tom is male and eats food faster than Charlie Sheen can spot a bar. When I’m with friends I share. But some of them like popcorn without the butter, which as I’ve stated before I don’t like, so then I’m stuck with all my buttery goodness.
And now I’m craving movie theater nachos. Anyone want to go to the movies with me? We can see the new Adam Sandler film Just Go With It.
