SUBJECT: Italian cookies
7 pounds of Italian cookies were purchased from Rosciglione’s Bakery this morning. 5 of those pounds are individual gifts for friends of ours. The remaining 2 pounds are for us. Right now they are sitting on the kitchen counter, calling out and tempting me to consume them. I know I could eat the whole damn box all by myself before Tuesday. Stupid cookies. Their deliciousness just overrides what little self-control I possess.
