Usually, I bake homemade cookies every week. This week, I simply didn't have time. Apparently, this was a problem.
As I sat at the computer, doing my work, I heard a strange sound - something that resembled the sound of a siren.
I wondered which member of my household was making it. I guessed either my son or my husband.
It was my husband.
"What's the big emergency?" I asked.
"There are no cookies in the house," he said.
I shrugged. "Sorry. I ran out of time to bake them this week. You'll have to eat fruit."
He shook his head. "We can't have this." He grabbed his keys and headed out the door.
When he came back twenty minutes later, he had a bag full of - you guessed it - boxes of cookies. Three boxes to be exact.
"Seriously?" I asked. "Was that necessary?"
He took one whole box for himself and disappeared into his office. When he came out, half of the box was eaten.
I shook my head. There is no doubt in my mind that I live with the cookie monster!
It must be fun living with your family, you never know what is going to occur next. Great read.ReplyDelete
This is very true. I never know what's next!Delete
Oh, the calories he just consumed...ReplyDelete
I don't even want to think about it!Delete
Store boughten don't taste is good, if so, he probably would have ate the whole box lolReplyDelete
Maybe it's a good thing I didn't bake cookies!Delete
I feel the same way when there are no cookies in the house! :)ReplyDelete
Yes. It's a major crisis. I feel that way about chocolate. ;0)Delete
Hi, dear Sherry! You should remind your husband that half a box of cookies = 5 hours on the treadmill. I'm a fruit nut. I would much rather snack on fruit than on sweets of any kind.ReplyDelete
I hope your week is off to a great start, dear friend Sherry!
We have a treadmill. I should make him run on it. ;0)Delete
The cookie monster in the flesh! :P I'm with Shady...I'd pick up fruit before a cookie...unless I badly craved a cookie with my afternoon pick-me-up.ReplyDelete
Fruit is definitely the better choice.Delete
Definitely the cookie monster, but I can understand his pain when there's no cookies in the house.ReplyDelete
You have to have cookies!Delete
just half? Where's the shock in that?ReplyDelete
When you consider that there are a dozen large cookies in each box, I'd say six cookies was quite a lot!Delete
LOL! I could almost hear him growling "Cookies!" as he shut the door to his office. ;)ReplyDelete
Haha! That's a good one!Delete
I usually eat cookies every day. That's probably not the same thing though, huh?ReplyDelete
Not unless you eat a half a box of cookies!Delete
Does he say, "Me want cookies?" If so, he's the Cookie Monster for sure.ReplyDelete
I don't recall if he said that this time, but I've heard him say it once or twice.Delete
Too funny, especially because it was your hubby. :)ReplyDelete
He's a funny guy!Delete
Haha! He didn't even offer you one? At least he didn't demand you go out and buy cookies. Now I want cookies:)ReplyDelete
If I went, I probably would've gotten the wrong kind. ;0)Delete
Wow, that's a lot of cookies to eat at once... Great storyReplyDelete
He must have been craving them.Delete
You have trained them to love the cookie, lol. My daughter loves to bake so I can see how it would be weird not to have a cake at some point in the week,ReplyDelete
"I've trained them to love cookies." You're probably right. I'll have to retrain them to love fruit.Delete
I"m sure the cookies your husband bought weren't as good as yours! He might have eaten the whole box in that case. :)ReplyDelete
Good thing they weren't homemade.Delete
Must have cookies in the house. I understand busy, but if you can't bake them, then buy them. Must have cookies in the house.ReplyDelete
My family love cookies, too. Chocolate chip ones are the best.ReplyDelete
These were chocolate chip. I think they're his favorite. I like white chocolate macadamia nut, too.Delete
Oh no mam your husband is not a cookies monster.ReplyDelete
Are you sure?Delete
Hah! I'm sure those cookies weren't as good as the kind you make, though... :)ReplyDelete
NO COOKIES? What were you thinking? I also live with a cookie monster but alas a cookie monster who is used to buying his cookies there never being any home baked on offer. Actually I'd best not let him see this post or he will come away feeling hard done by.ReplyDelete
Haha! If your husband likes cookies, maybe he should make them himself.Delete
Were they only half as good?ReplyDelete
Yes. That's why he ate only half the box.Delete
I bet those boxed cookies weren't half as good as the homemade ones! Dang, now I want some cookies..ReplyDelete
We're out of cookies, again. Guess he's going to have to make another trip. ;0)Delete
How sad that he didn't pull out the fixings for 'real' cookis and make them himself. *sigh* He might have ended up with the cookie baking job since, in my experience, men really like to bake cookies and tend to take over the job after frowning down the baker's neck.ReplyDelete
I don't think we have all the fixings for real cookies. His only option was to buy boxes.Delete
Bet they weren't as good as yours... but fruit is not an acceptable alternative!ReplyDelete
He really likes his cookies. I've left the house at various times, even late at night, for cravings, so I understand where he's coming from.ReplyDelete
I usually crave chocolate or ice cream. So I get it, too.Delete
I think you and I are on the same page, having no cookies is not a crisis... :) ... I hope he enjoyed them xoxReplyDelete
Haha! The rest of my family doesn't get it.Delete
Your hubby sounds like a big kid! Hahaha! But then again, men don't grow up, do they? xoxoReplyDelete
Yes, he is a big kid!Delete
LOL. I don't keep sweets in the house because my youngest goes berserk, but my hubby does like to keep a stash of treats just for himself.ReplyDelete
That would be exactly what my man would do!Delete
Hehe...definitely a cookie monster!ReplyDelete
Sherry, I tried to answer about Bubba's drink but cant get any comment space are you switched off?ReplyDelete
By the way very clever son you have.
No, I checked. The comments are still on, and I can comment. Others seem to be able to do so as well. Maybe it was just some strange temporary glitch. Hopefully next time you try, it will work.Delete
