I volunteer at a hospital. Sometimes we’re given a boxed meal because the cafeteria is closed. This past shift, instead of packaged cookies, there were baked cookies that were wrapped in pairs. I thought they were chocolate chip so saved them for my Large Fry. When I got home, I told her there were cookies for her.
Fast forward 2 days. This child, who never uses Facebook or Messenger had messaged me while I was at a meeting.
“Okay I realize it is early in the day but I got those cookies that were meant for me.
They were not chocolate chip.
They were raisin cookies.
I have fallen for a trick I thought only existed in fiction.”
I messaged an apology because I would not have shared Oatmeal Raisin cookies with her, I would have kept them all for me. (Obviously.)
When I got home she handed me the leftover cookie and said
“I bit into the cookie. I tasted betrayal, not chocolate.”
I love my Large Fry.
If you’re going out, go out big.
