When spring began in earnest last month, I excitedly told the Bubbers King that there were “popcorn trees” outside.

He was understandably skeptical, but I nodded my head and said, “Yes!  There are popcorn trees outside and we’re going to find them!”

So we went out back and I said, “Do you see one? Where’s the popcorn tree?”

“Right dere!!!” he eagerly answered.

“That’s right!!” I replied with a smile.

Then after a moment I asked, “Do you want to walk out front and see more popcorn trees?”

More pah-corn trees?!” he repeated as he followed me to our front yard.

“Yep!” I replied, “Do you see any?  Where are they?”

“That’s right!!” I smiled, “Aren’t they beautiful!”

“Yes!” he answered as we walked down our street lined with popcorn trees on both sides.

I breathed in the sweet aroma of blossoms and sighed with contentment.

Nothing brightens up the world quite like popcorn does.
