Cookie Dough Sales

Meet Ebony:

Ebony is my neighbor.  She rang the doorbell today and asked me to buy some cookie dough for her school fundraiser.  How could I say no to that cute face?

So I started perusing the brochure, and my mouth immediately started watering.  In my mind, I was saying (imagine a Homer Simpson voiceover), "Chocolate Chunk...White Chocolate Macadamia Nut...Double Chocolate Chip...Snickerdoodle...Peanut Butter Cup..."

Here, I better give you some visuals, so you can experience what I did:

Okay, I'll stop now.

As I was hearing Homer Simpson's voice in my head, drooling over the cookies, I suddenly saw a vision into the future:  It was me, in the middle of the night, grading papers at the kitchen table with a spoon in one hand and a tub of cookie dough in the other.

Uh, was that a vision of the future or a vision of the recent past?

Anyway, I snapped out of my dream-like state (Ebony was probably starting to question my sanity), and I went ahead and placed my order:

Chocolate Chip Walnut.

I gave her the money and closed the door feeling very proud of myself.  You see, I am allergic to walnuts.  But guess who isn't?

Sorry, Ry, but I just had to use this pic--my cute little Eagle Scout.

O.F.U.R is back with a vengeance!


  1. Well played, Rachel. Well played.

  2. Bahaha... you are always good for a laugh. That pic of Ryan is classic. I now want a cookie. Or dozens of them. Thanks :)

  3. CLASSIC Ry-Ry shot! Perfect choice. Support her but still be good about your diet! You go girl!

  4. Ha ha! This is awesome. I laughed, I cried, I read it to Mike. Okay I didn't really cry but the rest is true.
    I'm proud of you Rach :)
    Ryan - make sure Rachel doesn't have some alternate motive here. OFUR also sounds like a SRHD (stop ryan's heart diet).

  5. I would never want to stop Ryan's heart!!!! A little cookie dough won't hurt him! Unlike me, he won't eat it all in a week. :)

  6. hey!
    you need to eat a little cookie dough/cookies now and then to keep sane. . . as least Karli Plant does!!!

    mmmm delicious!
    tell Ry i will help him finish off that dough if he has trouble doing it himself! ;)

  7. You and Chelsea could be sisters, your writing is so similar and always gives me a giggle. I love the picture of Ryan.

  8. You go girl! I would NEVER have had that self control. :)


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
