Hey! Remember that time I took an extra long, long weekend for 4th of July and didn’t post anything on my blog for like, a week!? Yeah, that sucked. Sorry, guys. But you know what? It’s not even my fault. I blame the insane amount of sugar coursing through my veins after eating the world’s most awesome, patriotic, cookie cake ever:
I mean seriously, look at it! There are 50 stars on it! BOOM! Count them! Ok, so maybe the frosting artist got tired when it came time to do the stripes. Or maybe they only knew about 11 of the 13 original colonies. Whatever – they also created this cookie cake and for that, I shall always love and respect them…whoever they are. And you know what the scariest part is? I ALMOST DIDN’T GET TO EAT IT! Because of my own stupidity! I know. It’s almost too horrible to comprehend. Luckily, my gentleman friend saved the day! (He’s so dreamy.)
So this is what happened. We are in the grocery store shopping for Fourth of July and we’re walking through the bakery and BAM! I see The Cookie Cake! It looked like this:
Gentleman Friend: Yeah, it’s pretty –
Glynnis: (picking up The Cookie Cake and making a peace sign.) Take a picture of me with it!
Gentleman Friend: Why don’t we –
Glynnis: Take the picture! Hurry! It’s heavy because it’s so awesome. You can send pictures straight to my e-mail with your phone, right?
Gentleman Friend: Why don’t we have that for dessert?
Glynnis: (Confused) But I was going to make a cake…
Gentleman Friend: Well, let’s buy the cookie cake.
Glynnis: First of all, please refer to it hereafter as The Cookie Cake because it is worthy of proper noun status. Second of all, cake and The Cookie Cake? Isn’t that a lot?
Gentleman Friend: First of all, you can’t hear if I’m calling it The Cookie Cake or the cookie cake.
Glynnis: I can tell by your tone and body language.
Gentleman Friend: Secondly, we could just buy The Cookie Cake and not have to worry about anything else for dessert.
Glynnis: (Brain implodes because she can have everything she’s ever wanted and not have to spend Saturday baking.)
And that’s why it’s important to find a partner in life who challenges you and opens your mind to things you never thought possible. Because then you can look like this:
*UPDATED* My super, awesome, amazing friend Michelle captured a picture of me moments before I fulfilled my destiny by devouring The Cookie Cake. A picture is worth a thousand words:
