If these two flavors of popcorn go well together could it also be true of other things in life? What other unlikely combinations are there? You and a skill you've never tried? Reading a book in a genre you think you don't like? Getting to know a person you have nothing in common with? Spending time doing something outside of your comfort zone?
Maybe the world would be a more flavorful place if we removed that piece of cardboard in our own lives and mixed the popcorn up, so to speak. This year I think I'll try some unlikely combinations.
