Mom: Did you hear my big news?
Child: Uh … yeah … Dad told me …
Mom: Well!? Isn’t it just such a wonderful idea!?
Child: Uh … yeah … it’s exciting, mom.
Mom: Everyone has just always had such wonderful things to say about my cookies! And now everyone in the world can have them since I’m going into business!
Child: Yeah, your cookies …
Child: They … keep. They keep better than any other cookie. Fresh or three weeks old, you can’t tell a difference.
Mom: Well, what an unusual compliment!
Child: I mean they’re good … It’s just like … Every time you have one you’re like, ‘oh yeah. This flavor.’
Mom: Now everyone will know that same delightful experience!
Child: Maybe you could have a recipe on the back to make something else with the cookies.
Mom: Like a cookie pie?
Child: No I was thinking like … a shed. Or the hull of a shipping vessel.
Mom: Hmm. Your dad said skyscrapers.
Child: Oh yeah! That’s a good one, dad.
Mom: Well. You can’t have any of these that are about to come out of the oven.
Child: All right! Thanks mom!
