Very tender and nostalgic--you got the mood exactly right. I usually don't care for "lessons" at the end of a story, but this one was very satisfying.
Touching and well-written. I wanted to read more.

This is nicely written and really speaks to my heart. You wove a familiar favorite, popcorn, into a nice message of God the Father.

Touching tale of a good daddy. I enjoyed this.

This was easy to read and flowed well. I did catch one typo, but that's about it.
I was involved with the main character as if I knew her!
I could also feel the worry and fatigue of the old lady. Great job.

I, too, enjoyed this story so much. It was timely for me because, just this week we bought a real movie theater popcorn maker to start an outreach event at our church: Movie Date Night. This week I have been experiencing much of what you so accurately describe. I could relate to the fluffy white popcorn, the salt and the butter. My heart was touched by your idea and the ending was exactly right. I could see this as a devotion! Good work!
