In which it’s like sloppy seconds

 

The other day Kevin and I were hanging out and we had the following conversation:

 

Kevin:             I ate too much crap yesterday.

 

Me:                 What did you eat?

 

Kevin:             I ate all that popcorn at the movies.

 

Me:                 Oh yeah…I forgot about that

 

Me:                 That popcorn was terrible.

 

Kevin:             Yeah, it was.

 

Me:                 It was like the dregs of popcorn.

 

Kevin:             I hate that.

 

Me:                 I know, all the kernels at the bottom and shit.

 

Kevin:             It was like sloppy seconds.

 

Me:                 YUCK! How was it like sloppy seconds?

 

Kevin:             Because all you got was the leftovers.

 

Me:                 I should write a post, “In which we had sloppy seconds.”

 

NOTE TO READER:  Here’s the link to the Urban Dictionary Definition of Sloppy Seconds.  You’re welcome.  SLOPPY SECONDS

 

Kevin:             hahahaha …yeah, great title!

 

Me:                 We should have exchanged it.

 

Kevin:             Can you imagine walking up and explaining that you wanted new popcorn because your popcorn was like sloppy seconds?

 

Me:                 hahahaha … do you think they would know what that was?

 

Kevin:             Lynn, EVERYONE knows what sloppy seconds are.

 

Me:                 Ummm … I didn’t know what they were until I met you.

 

Kevin:             Well, everyone else who’s an adult will know.

 

Me:                 Well, I didn’t.

 

Kevin:             Yeah well, you’re you though.

 

Me:                 What does that mean?

 

So there you are.  Another typical conversation around our house.  You have to admit that when you go to the movie theater and get all those popcorn dregs that it sucks.  So just explain to them that you don’t do “sloppy seconds.”

 

I’m just saying …

    I would like to know which movie you guys have seen and why you felt compelled to eat the drags of the popcorn!

    I have never heard of “sloppy seconds.” Then again, I am not from around here!

      well, we were arguing about who was going to exchange it and then the movie started…so nobody dealt with it

    Two things: What was the movie? And is it sad that I’ve had the same experience and begged my husband to change out the popcorn because it was…sloppy seconds?

      I think it was Super 8. Did you really use that terminology? AWESOME

    The only sloppy seconds I’ve ever had to deal with were my own… since I’ve never been in a multiple partner sex situation, I’ve never had to follow someone…

    Personally, I’m not sure that is something I would like to do…

    That would be a great name, however, for a popcorn brand…

    ‘Sloppy Seconds Popcorn’… keeps you coming back for more…

    I’ve never been able to turn down movie popcorn, even the dregs of it. I’m convinced you have the most entertaining family, like ever.

    Christ, Lynn! I was JUST having dinner and reading your blog at the same time. Won’t be doing that for a while! I was about to take a spoonful of I don’t know what (I don’t cook, only eat like a politically-incorrect hungry male chauvinist pig) when I read that great definition of sloppy seconds. Damn woman, I wasn’t hungy anymore haha. Thanks for that mental picture that went straight into my long-term memory if you know what I mean. I will never be able to get rid of it when I’m having dinner.

    After years of avoiding serious relationships, I think I’m finally ready after reading this post.

    It’s like Gilmore Girls dialogue.

    …Not that I ever watched that show.

    • Lynn
      June 29, 2011

      I never saw Gilmore Girls…did they talk like that really? Just avoid the dregs

      • Matt Kittoe
        June 29, 2011

        Lol well that show just had really clever dialogue.

        …Not that I would know.

    I KNEW what “Sloppy Seconds” were, I was still compelled to read the Urban Dictionary Definition .. I actually ‘lol’ .. That’s Great! Was there at least a lot of salt? You gotta have the salt!

    • Lynn

      There was a lot of salt but mostly crunchy kernels and remnants…you know, the crests. I live urban dictionary.
