You Make Me Want To Shout

On Air, Microphone, Radio, RecordingThere is this radio presenter on a radio show, well I think it maybe the entire radio station actually…I cannot explain how much I wish I did not have to hear it.

In the course of my working week, I sometimes work with a colleague who is great. Really really nice person. Very good at their work, great with staff and patients alike. However, this colleague really likes a radio presenter, on a radio show, on a radio station that is/are controversial, superior, critical and just – ugh!

Everytime I hear this guy wittering away with his cynical style, I want to run. I want to throw water over the radio. I want to to protest that we have to work with this guy draining to morale out of us.

Oh what to do! I don’t want to be a grumber. I really like my colleague. I just wish my colleaguee was not so keen on listening to one of the most annoying broadcasts there is.

I Would Love Your View On A Very Controversial Question?

Goldfinch and I differ in one key respect: POPCORN!

The night we met…you see I had popcorn…sweet popcorn.  He said later that was the only thing I did wrong that night!  He insists popcorn should be salty.

Last time we went to the cinema together, I shared a huge tub of salty popcorn with him – because I love him.  However, in my mind popcorn should be sweet.  I have grown up loving Butterkist Toffee popcorn.  So sweet toffee popcorn is absolute popcorn perfection to me.

I don’t want to take too much of your time, I am sure you are very busy writing your own posts, but would you kindly send a quick comment saying SWEET or SALTY and then later I can count them up and show Goldfinch the international response to this question.

If you have the time…ask all the members of your family or household…ask your workmates.  The more who are willing to offer a vote, the fairer a trial it will seem to Goldfinch.  I am sure it is not going to change his preferences…but I am hoping that if I receive enough support, he won’t think my liking sweet popcorn is quite so strange!

In the meantime…here are some other rather unusual flavours of popcorn that Joe & Seph’s actually make and presumably people buy them (I can only imagine pregnant women with cravings would enjoy them) but then everyone is different!
