So, I was invited to join a “virtual cookie swap” group today by no less than three friends. I don’t know if you’ve heard of this oddity, but apparently it’s a so-called club where people share photos of cookies with each other — the kinds of confections they would LIKE to bake for the holidays (but won’t), instead of real cookies. I’m confused. It’s as if these people don’t know me at all.
LOLOLOL Maybe you could lick the pictures, otherwise????
Eh. Chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, double fudge macadamia, they all tasted the same — like static-y plastic. Blech. And now my laptop screen is covered in drool.
what a terrible thing to do to you.
BASTARDS! What sort of sick, twisted, evil creature would do this? You want to invite someone to a “cookie swap” group? Stick a dozen actual, honest-to-Ghu, sugar-rich, fattening, diabetes-inducing cookies in a tin and deliver it to someone’s door with an invitation to pass the concept on to the next person lucky enough to be a recipient. How freakin’ hard is this to figure out?
The next thing you know, instead of actually going out and having personal relationships and celebrating the holidays and letting that “Christmas magic” lead you to your true soulmate and a kiss under the mistletoe leading to eternal, ultimate bills, we’ll all just watch Hallmark Christmas movies 24/7… Wait, what?
My thoughts exactly.
And hey, don’t you be hating on Hallmark movies! (Although, I do sort of miss The Golden Girls…with these round-the-clock movies, no more Golden Girls till after Christmas.)
Hey, I hadn’t made the connection. Thanks! There *IS* a silver lining!
I’ll just go to the grocery store and buy cookies from their bakery department.
And I’ll do this at any time of the year. Seasons don’t matter.
Smart man! I do that with cakes…hey, it’s gotta be somebody’s birthday somewhere, so why not get a cake?
Man, next they’ll invite you to have virtual cocktails.
