OH! You made cookies. YAY!
They smell so good. Can I eat one?
But I want one, just one.
No you can’t. They’re for your Brownie Troop.
Each Brownie gets 3 cookies. 3 × 12 =36.
You can’t eat one, it will mess up the count.
Well, what if they each got 2 and half?
I not breaking cookies in half so you can eat some.
Well, what if they each got two instead three?
They should be happy with two.
I’d be happy with one measly cookie.
You’ll get three in the troop meeting with your fellow Brownies.
Well, they should be happy with two,
because it’s harder when you havta smell them.
Is it okay if I just smell them real hard then?
I don’t think that’s a good idea.
Besides, you’re starting to scare me a little,
you just might sniff all the flavor out.
MOM!!! So I have to wait until tomorrow?
How about if I eat mine now and then I won’t have any tomorrow.
Really? What will you be doing while everyone else is eating their cookies?
Oh I’ll be . . . okay . . . then if I can eat . . . them . . . . now.
Alright this conversation is over.
Oh mannn!!. . . .This is horrible!!
Kid, you have no idea.
Can I eat the crumbs?
How about if you just leave the kitchen altogether
and go outside and rake leaves.
let the negotiations begin . . .
just a little snippet from my memories with my Mom.
believe me, I did eat my share of cookies at other times. :)))
