One question that has gone to the back burner of my mind but is still simmering is: Who left the cookies?
On July 4 a paper plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in plastic was left between my front doors. No one in the household could tell me who left them. No one had seen a car back out of the drive or a neighbor scamper away.
I wrote my number one suspect an email but she was downed by sciatica, unable to bake or scamper. The cookies sat on the table. I ate at least one before going to a 4th of July parade. And another after dinner. They were delish.
And sooner than later all the cookies disappeared but I never found out who left them. Was it you?
Corny though it is, I am turning to William Carlos William (“This is Just To Say”) to express my gratitude.
This is just to say
I have eaten
that were between
you were probably
to be thanked.
they were delicious
and so moist.
