Broken Crown

Recently, I purchase a bag of cheddar popcorn at the store. I don’t usually do this as I prefer to pop my own at home, because I love the half popped ones and home-popped popcorn yeilds more of these delicious nuggets.

Anyway about 70% into the bag, I bit down on something hard. I tried to stop but it was too late.

Then I felt it. That jagged bit of shell from an unpopped kernel.

Naturally, I tucked the popcorn away and sought out some floss to get that shell out of there. Only, it wasn’t a shell.

That hard kernel had sheared off part of my tooth.

I thought I could hold off until my normally scheduled dental appointment in two weeks. But no. That broken bit of crown wiggled and jiggled sending pain down to my toes.

So now I have a pirate crown, all shiny and silver. Until next Wednesday when I get the nice enamel one. As for the rest of the bag of popcorn, I finished it. I guess I’ll just be avoiding the kernels in the future. 😀

Until next time.

    I’ve run into the same problem (hard pieces) with bagged popcorn. I’ll still buy the cheese flavored but eat more carefully than I did when I was younger.
