There's always that cliche thing to do - when a girl is alone, she sits at home eating ice cream or cookie dough and watching a sappy love movie.
Well - last nite I decided to make cookies, and of course I need to eat some of the dough first, and watch 'Bones.' So I mixed it all up and carried the bowl to the couch with me... I'm actually not big on eating a lot of dough, so I ate some and then just watched the show. Finally, as I was sitting there kind of chilled, I decided to bake some so I could get warm and have tasty, fresh cookies. I baked a batch, and then sat down with a plate of cookies and a glass of cold milk. It was pretty good!
I thought to myself how typical and pathetic it was for me to do this. But then I realized that I had been craving these cookies for a LONG time. My excuse was always, 'but there's no one here to eat them.' But even when there WAS someone there to eat them, I hadn't made them. So it was about time. Plus, I wasn't drowning my sorrows, I just happen to be enjoying an evening by myself with some tasty snacks, Dr. Brennan, and Agent Booth.
Besides - whoever heard of anyone drowning their sorrows in oatmeal chocolate chip cookies??
