Monday Musing - Cookie Calories

Example of an American grocery store aisle.Image via Wikipedia
A husband took his young daughter to the grocery store to help him buy groceries. In addition to the healthy items on his wife's carefully prepared list, the two of them returned home with a package of sugar-filled cookies.

"Why in the world did you buy those?" his wife asked. "You know they aren't good for you!"

"Oh, but don't worry, honey, these cookies have one-third less calories than usual in them," the husband replied.

The wife looked all over the package but couldn't find any claim to that fact, so she asked, "What makes you think that?"

"We ate about a third of the box on the way home."

Peace and Joy,

Haha, I needed that Susan. Thanks for starting my day with a laugh. After hearing about the guy in Hatai that was trapped for 11 days and survived eating cookies and drinking beer and sodas, I had to tell my wife; See they are good for you. :)

I can remember when we were young, my brother could eat a whole box of vanilla wafers in one sitting. If my sis and I wanted any, we had to be quick!!!
