I don't know about you, but I need a distraction from all the bad things happening right now. I mean, look at what has gone on in the last two MONTHs-
- Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, Maria, Nate and now Ophelia. The first 3 were Category 3+
- HUGE 7.1 Earthquake in Mexico
- Raging wildfires in North and South California, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and British Colombia
So I decided I wanted . . . NO I NEEDED some cookies. But not just any cookies. Nope, I wanted HALLOWEEN sugar cookies. So I got this
Yes! The perfect FAST way to satisfy a cookie CRAVING. And for that craving, they did the trick. Yes, I know sugar is not good for PUGS. It's not good for HUMANS either, but I don't see them stopping from eating it. And yes, SUGAR is insidious and shows up in the strangest places.
But there was something other than SUGAR which made this package of Pillsbury cookie dough particularly insidious. Something so underhanded and scary. . . I uh . . . can't quite get my HEAD around it . . .
Yes, you guessed it - the package contained a MASK for Halloween Trick or Treating. I should have noticed the CLUE: Note Mr. Pillsbury Dough Boy.
See what he is wearing? Cousin E spotted it investigated it. Turns out the package included a MASK.
She cut it out. Next thing I know, she is putting it ON ME and PLYING me with treats. TREATS!!! How can I resist? I totally fell into that COOKIE TRAP.
Still, you gotta admit - I am totally ROCKING the mask!
And KNOW WHAT? I actually do feel better. But just to be safe, I think I need another cookie/
