I had all these things lined up to write about and they’ve
all flown out of my head like little birds. I’ve been feeling really… drifty lately. If drifty is a feeling. Kind of
unfocused, but also (alternating-ly) focused. But in a really mellow way. You
know? Like, relaxed mood swinging. Maybe it’s the changing of the season? I can’t quite put my finger on it. I think the season definitely has something to do with
it. I’ve been feeling overwhelming urges
to bake (and eat) cookies lately. That
can’t be good. (Unless combined with ice

Ah, that’s leads me to a thought! For anyone out there feeling in the mood… the
ultimate cookie sundae:

First, you need some frozen or fresh cookie dough.

Second, if they’re pre-cut cookies you need to squish a
couple of those puppies together to make one big cookie. Like… I would say four or five inches in
diameter. (What?)

Third, cook it! Preferably in a dish about the same size of the cookie or at least
easily handable. You know, so you can
eat right out of the dish. (Yes,
“handable” is a word now.)

Fourth, pull that sucker out of the oven, drop a big scoop
of ice cream onto the still hot cookie (this is SO key), and drizzle with
sundae topping. (I prefer white
chocolate- macadamia cookies with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch topping,
but feel free to go crazy.)

Fifth, eat. No sappy
chick flick or special occasion necessary. (Well, maybe Fall is a good one.)

One of the upsides to having kids, knowing other people with
kids, working with people with kids, etc.
is some school, somewhere is trying to raise a buck selling those frozen
buckets of cookie dough.

God bless them.

OK, I digressed. (That’s
what happens when you just start typing.)

Some days… I just want to babble.         – wg
