Cookies, they don’t last long. I don’t know if you know, that our whole family eats gluten and dairy free. We both have strong intolerances, and as a result so does our girl. She gets red and puffy around her eyes. Stick with me, there is a point. All gluten and dairy free treats tend to be much pricier than their regular counterparts. As a result, we don’t often buy ice cream (coconut milk base) or cookies (GF&DF free).
But when sometimes there magically appears a bag of GF cookies we all collectively pounce on it like a pack of starving hyenas. Of course, we all pretend to not be doing so…which makes it even more hilarious. We feign and coy civility, meanwhile sneaking away cookies to be eaten secretly in a corner with a watchful eye lest someone come and take it away.
Then everyone acts surprised when at the end of the day the bag stands empty. Only my girl is honest about eating the cookies.
The rest? They disappeared into the black hole that occasionally appears in this house….when cookies and ice cream are present.
