The other day while adventuring around the city on the way to the Book Expo America, my buddy Skeleton Pete and I saw a literal caravan of teenagers who were carrying and handing out cookies no less. This was apparently a promotion from one of the nearby hotels and they were having a blast of a time surprising the New York City workaday travelers with their offerings. Some were shouting and others singing and it was all in the name of the cookie. Not a bad way to get some attention. This was truly a great way to start the day and I made sure to secure my cookie in my bag for later consumption. I figured that it was better to be able to enjoy it while sitting down and relaxing after a hopefully productive day of journalistic tasks.
The band of merry travelers of the cookie actually handed me a couple of them, and I was not going to argue about this at all. It’s packaging was appealing to the eye and spirit and cited that “stressed spelled backward is desserts”. Talk about your level of Socratic wisdom. Once home, I did open it up to let you see just how well it was baked. It was a chocolate chip cookie and it had a lot of chunks of the stuff which is something I always prefer at the end of the day. As you can see by the image below, this was a very sizable treat and I used a penny to give you a sense of scale. Don’t worry I didn’t eat the penny in case you were wondering about that.
I’m sorry if this made you jealous but it really was not my intent. I only felt like sharing this small bit of good fortune with you readers. It sure was tasty though. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
