MY Cookie Crisis

It is so not fair.

I was wandering through an artisan-type market filled with stalls peddling wares which didn't particularly catch my eye.

Until I happened upon a bakery.

With the most delectable cookies. Huge. Warm. Brimming with glistening melty gooey chocolate chips.

Forget petting them. I was ready to adopt them! They were calling my name and I was answering! And to top it off, they had Dr. Pepper in a glass bottle. Just like when I was a little girl.

I took my purchase to a cozy seat, and with eager anticipation lifted the cookie to my lips.

And the alarm clock went off!

Before I even took the first bite.

Now I have had some aggravating dreams, but that one took the cake, er, cookie. A chance to enjoy the wondrous sensation of that delectable treat with nary a calorie to count, and it all vanished at the sound of the buzz.

So not only have I become addicted to reading these blogs, but they are invading my dreams and taunting me.

I'm just glad I'm not an Old Tesatament prophet. I really don't want to know what this dream means....

It's a cruel, cruel world.

What is it with all of us and cookies? I'm beginning to wonder if we should start some sort of 12 step program or something? At our meetings we could have girl scout cookies for snacks:)

you had me hooked....I was waiting to hear what happened after you took a bite. And then to find out you were just dreaming, sigh...

I wouldn't want to know the meaning either. :)

You made me laugh tonight!!

LOL! What a sad, sad way to end a dream. When I was a little girl, I remember dreaming that I had a handful of M&M's and woke up with my hand shut tight. I still remember the sense of acute disappointment that my hand was empty!
