How Many and What Kind: 3 Chip Ahoys
Drink: Big cup of milk with lots of Bosco
When: Right after school, maybe 3:30?
Other: Mom was at Carol’s house getting recipes. Brian was at swim practice. I was alone with the cookies. The bag was open and maybe 6 were gone. I wanted more than 3 but didn’t wanna risk it. Binx begged for one but I didn’t give him one. (Choc. is bad for dogs.)
Result: Felt pretty good about it, not too stuffed for dinner!

How Many and What Kind: 5 Chip Ahoys
Drink: Bosco from the bottle!
When: Late (midnight?)
Other: Waited until Brian and Mom were snoring (YES, YOU BOTH SNORE!!), then went to the kitchen. The cookie bag was crumpled closed so I had to be extra careful not to make noise. Fridge door sticks and makes a WHOOSH sound, so I skipped milk. Bosco’s better by itself anyway. Ate 2 cookies in the kitchen and took the other 3 to my room.
Result: Felt like a secret agent!

How Many and What Kind: Just 1 Chip Ahoy chocolate chip! No cookies!!
Drink: Tab with 4 ice cubes
Approved?: I don’t approve at all!
Other: I stayed after school to make up a quiz. When I got home THE COOKIE BAG WAS MISSING. I found it in the trash but nothing was in it except for 1 chocolate chip. I ate it. Brian came into the kitchen and said he had 8 cookies because he got an A on his math test.
Result: I was GYPPED!

How Many and What Kind: 12 Chip Ahoys!!! (Mom went food shopping today!)
Drink: Chocolate milkshake made by Cathy the BEST BABYSITTER IN THE WORLD!!!
Approved?: Cathy said it was OK!
Other: Mom went on a date and Cathy babysat even though I’m too old for that. I’m the ONLY 11-year-old in the WORLD who still has a babysitter!!! But Cathy’s cool and let me have as many cookies as I wanted and makes milkshakes with a whole container of ice cream.
Result: I love Cathy almost as much as cookies!
