I miss Jiffy Pop.
Sure, I am certain I can still find some, somewhere and pop my own corn on the stove, but then I think...
Orrrrr I could just nuke some and sit down for a few minutes and check my email while it pops.
Plus in this day and age of more and more powerful microwaves it is hard to remember a time when 10-15 minutes shaking a thing on the stove was considered 'Jiffy.'
So, yes, Jiffy Pop still exists, but I am just too spoiled to use it. I can just close my eyes, listen to the microwave popcorn, smell the scent and imagine how much more fun it would be if I were doing it on the stove. #goodenoughforme
I also get mad at my phone at work. Did you know I actually have to dial the numbers? I have to press actual buttons to make things happen. And guess what if I mis-dial a number I have to start ALL OVER AGAIN??? What is up with that?
Oh, ya, it is actually how phones have worked since their invention. I just got spoiled by my iPhone.
And speaking of an iPhone (which I do frequently and with great love and devotion), as I was typing this blog, I made several spelling errors. Now you would think I would be content that the the program highlighted mis-spelled words.
But no, even that is not enough for me. I want them auto-corrected. Just fix it already!
Yes, technology has spoiled me. But oh how I love my tech in return.
Once you've had tech... well, you are too busy playing with it to care about much else :-)
Who's with me?
Tell me your "spoiled" moments!
