Heeeeeey! Woah… that’s a big cookie on the screen.
Y’all know those sugar cookies that come in the plastic clamshell container? You know the ones whose name sound like “soft house”? Of course you do… anyway- I always had a love hate relationship with them. First bite: I love. Third bite- I hate. I can always taste some sort of bitter preservative or something “off”. (The second bite is always to figure out if what I tasted was good or not, BTW)
Anyway, maybe I have a sensitive palate. Certain things I can just taste. So, came the ” invention in my kitchen”. Oooo, that’s a good blog name. Or tick Tok, or whatever else is out there… Speaking of tic Tok- remember that post I wrote about the boulder I live under? Yep, I’m still under it because I don’t do Tic Tok. I probably should.. I need to do more videos, because my husband told me that “nobody reads anymore.” And, you know, he’s always right. Right? meh. So: I’ll be making more videos.
I’ve realized that the only people that might possible actually read this post are stalkers and haters. But that’s cool because it’s traffic. So- keep on hating and stalking. I’m not going anywhere. Unless I die, then I’m going to heaven so it’s all good.
Back to cookies! Because, you’re here for the cookies, right?! You accepted them, ? I don’t know about you, but every time I accept cookies, I should get some sort of coupon for actual cookies I can get. Why don’t they use a new word for the cookies on computers? Cookies are getting a bad name by association.
