I probably should not say this

The boys walked in from the Bishop’s Fireside tonight and said, “We have good news and bad news.”

Now that is not exactly what you want to be hearing when they walk in the door from a fireside where they were supposed to be spiritually fed and enlightened by the Bishop of the Ward for the last hour and an half. I give them the benefit of the doubt, however.

This is how the rest of the conversation went:

Me: “What is the good news?”
Andrew: “We have more cookies.”
Me: “What is the bad news?”
Kyle: “We have more cookies.”

That is bad news indeed. 

Me: “And they are not my cookies.”
Andrew and Kyle: “I know. They were just left over.”

They were acting like it was their responsibility to take care of these left over cookies. Their duty.

You see this is just not good news anyway you look at it because we managed to tear through six dozen chocolate chip cookies in less than thirty six hours. That is not good. They are not entirely gone, but there are less than a dozen left at this point in time.

Granted, they only brought home three cookies. Three chocolate chip cookies. I told them they would have to eat them as I had my own to eat. It was a burden that they were just going to have to carry.

That being said, one of those cookies is missing. Andrew did not eat it. Kyle did not eat it. Lance did not eat it. Ben did not know about it because he was already out of town on a business trip. That only leaves one person that could be guilty of that crime. That would be me.

I have to say that in the experience, I have decided that I am a cookie snob. There, I said it. I am a cookie snob.

I had to have not one but two of my own cookies to chase the other cookie down. Notice I said I chased it down with two of my own cookies and not with a glass of milk? There is something seriously wrong with that. There must be something seriously wrong with me. Since I have concluded that I am perfectly fine and my cookies must be perfectly fine as nearly six dozen of them vanished in less than thirty six hours, then there is only one logical conclusion to be drawn from this…
