Cookies: A Conversation With Luke
As we enter the kitchen after dinner at Panera, he spots a fortune cookie on the counter....
L: Can I have this fortune cookie?
Me: No, you had a cookie at dinner.
L: But I didn't have a fortune cookie.
Me (more firmly): You already had a cookie at dinner.
L: But this is super crunchy! It's not even a cookie.
Me: IT HAS COOKIE IN THE NAME! It's printed right on the package!
(Please tell me he's going to be a lawyer and that all this arguing is just practice for a stellar career....)
Currently feeling: completely exasperated (and sensing more in my future)
