cookies and their monsters
If I were to chose a soapbox to stand on today it would be the one that supports Cookie Monster and Santa Claus in their eating of cookies.
I have heard that folks are trying to persuade Cookie Monster and Santa Claus to make healthier decisions. They have caught on that children across America say to themselves "Would Santa eat this?" before munching on a cookie. I know I do.
I guess all of this bothers me because I feel like it this kind of effort makes it seem like steps are being taken to help our youth and their health, and I just don't think they are the right steps. I find it hard to believe that, unless you have a tricky metabolism, homemade cookies will do you wrong. I firmly believe that a couple of cookies will do you oh-so-right.
So, Cookie Monster, these are for you.
and speaking of large round bellies, why is it the so few people notice mine? This is my daily view of Sprout and close friends and family can barely tell. I'm going for more cookies now. That just might help.
