Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
I once worked at a bakery where I had to mix about 60 pounds of cookie dough every other day. It was amazing for the first couple of months. I got to take home whatever cookies didn’t get sold. My hair would always smell of fresh baked cookies. Plus, this particular bakery also had a super nice barista who’d know to make me a soy latte whenever I was caught with a cookie in hand.
However, by the fourth month, my favorite pair of skinny jeans no longer fit the same way. Cookies had become my enemy and I swore I’d never eat them again. That only lasted a month or so, because by the time the bakery introduced a different cookie variation, I was happy to smell like cookies again.
