Sometimes things don't happen and I have to think up things to write about.
Then there are days like today.
I had finished my run. I was outside cutting my dahlias. The neighbor boy headed my way with a packet.
I knew that meant one thing: it's fundraiser season.
He asked if I wanted to buy cookie dough. Of course! I told him to wait outside while I ran and got the checkbook.
When I came back outside, I talked with him a little to find out what prize he wanted.
Then, a young man rode up on his bicycle. He asked me if I had a towel. He had just eaten a cupcake and his hands were all sticky. His repetitive questions helped me understand that he was harmless. I told him to hang on, while the neighbor boy was still waiting for me to pick my cookie dough and write the check, and I went inside and got Christian (he told us his name) a damp paper towel. He used it and I told him I would take it when he was finished. Then he rode off.
The neighbor boy and I resumed my cookie dough shopping.
I chose the white chocolate macadamia nut. It's my number one choice of store (fundraiser) bought cookie dough. Mostly because those nuts are so expensive I don't buy them myself. Otherwise I'd make the cookies from scratch.
The neighbor boy told me he'd be back with his order form. This was his sister's.
Bill will get to chose a cookie dough too. (Of course, he doesn't read my blog so we could keep this a secret and I could buy two white chocolate macadamia nut and he wouldn't know…)
