After making your choice, the Nutcrackers magically disappear and in their place is a small plastic cup of popcorn. Seriously, you think?! That’s it! But then you taste it and realize it is puffy and light as air! You devour the entire cup before you finally notice the handwritten note laying next to it.

Dear Doodlewash Adventurer,

I figured we’d pause for a snack as based on your choice you were apparently hungry. Or you wanted to see some clouds, in which case I’m sorry to disappoint you. But if it’s any consolation you were almost met with an armadillo! And seriously, what would you have done with that?

My sister made this popcorn and it’s insanely good, so I just had to doodlewash it! Of course, I’m no idiot. I didn’t just sit there and stare at it. I was eating out of one cup while sketching the other! Clever, eh?! And it’s delicious! She got some new contraption that allows her to spin the popcorn on the stove top…I think… I wasn’t paying close attention as I was too busy eating it.

On this particular family holiday trip, I’ve been pretty good about not over-indulging in snacks so far. Normally, I’m curled up in a fetal position holding my stomach and praying for a quick death on the first day. That said, my sister is bringing lots of delicious things over shortly and so it’s entirely possible I’ll be stuffed like a turkey in a few hours. 

We head back home tomorrow, but hopefully I’ll be able to sketch something at some point. Until then, grab yourself a snack and make your choice on where we go next…

  3. Popcorn: my arch nemesis.😉 Well, not quite, but we’ve been there before. Marvellous doodlewash, though. I certainly hope you avoided being ‘turkeyed’ and therefore aren’t feeling any effects of your indulgence.

    The vote is so close as I write this – what tension! I felt it my duty to try and even it out.

    1. Hehe…yeah…I realized I’d already talked about popcorn, but hadn’t drawn it yet! Lol And I know!! The vote was a tie when I went to sleep last night. Hehe…I had no idea what I would have to draw! But just got back home…and back to steady cell service! Yay!
