Last Call For Cookies

Me: "Boys... it's now Last Call For Food. However, your mother is baking cookies. So if you want to wait until their done, I'm prepared to offer you a cookie-based extension."

Secondborn: "I want a cookie!"

Firstborn: "What kind of cookies are they?"

Me: "Delicious."

Firstborn: "But what kind are they?"

Me: "Garlic and onion sugar cookies with bacon frosting."

On a related note, Firstborn has a remarkably eloquent and well-practiced face-palm gesture.


  1. Garlic chocolate chip cookies are surprisingly tasty. While I doubt that adding onion would improve things any, I bet bacon frosting would. Mmmmm... bacon

  2. So, of course, after I finish posting, it occurs to me to search for bacon to see if it actually exists.

  3. Of course it exists! Bacon-flavored everything exists!

    I've never actually tried garlic chocolate chip cookies. I'll have to do that.

  4. If you do, please post a review, offspring's reactions included.

    And of course, I left out a "frosting" in my previous comment.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
