It was hot enough and wretchedly humid enough yesterday that I think Ann Arbor felt as though it had been magically transported to Hawaii. (I've never been there, and am the only person I know who has absolutely no interest whatsoever in going there -- not being a heat, humidity, beach or airplane kinda girl -- so I can only presume ....) But since there seems to have been some semblance of commonality weather-wise, it only makes sense to join up with "Aloha Friday" today, hosted by An Island Life. (Yeah, it's a flimsy and tangential connection ... let's all just go with it!)
The rules are ridiculously simple, which is a good thing on a Friday with too much to do at work and too many errands and nitpicky details to handle afterwards: "If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link ...." Any kinda question is apparently permissible. Well, even a flaky chick like moi -- who, in my pre-caffeinated state this morning, managed to accidentally delete 8 comments intended for yesterday's post! -- can manage that one.
But, of course, there is the requisite decision making-induced brain paralysis to endure first: a food related question, to be certain ... a question about kitchen toys, yea or nay? ... one about ingredients? ... one about restaurants, favorite places or worst experiences? ... hmmmm .... Perhaps I spoke -- typed -- too soon when I said that this might be easy!
Okay, I've got it! Yesterday, Tom and I debated what kind of cookie each of us would be; I think he would be a simple cookie on the surface -- a sugar cookie, perhaps -- but with a rich and surprising filling. Here's what he wrote for me: "I see you as three freshly baked cookies - peanut butter, chocolate-cherry, sugar - crumbled in a bowl with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Then I see you as Girl Scout thin mints too: simple, yet satisfying and good with coffee." Analyze and interpret as you see fit!
So, here's my question: If you were to suddenly find that you'd been transformed into a cookie, what kind of cookie would you be???
