A few monthes ago I saw the cutest viral video. Based on Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, the Cookie Monster sang his own version where he said he’d hope if you had a cookie you’d “Share It Maybe”.
A year ago I would have simply laughed and moved on, but this parody has resonated wtih me because (bizarre as it might sound) I was just like the Cookie Monster.
Cookies are, single-handedly, my greatest weakness. I still find them incredibly hard to resist. So much so, in fact, that unlike everyone else at staff meetings, I’m happier when there are no cookies as it takes away my temptation!
It has been a big struggle to recognize how extensive my fixation on cookies truly is and to take steps to ensure that I come up with strategies (such as bringing my own fruit to staff meetings and sitting directly across the room from the cookies) to deal with it.
I guess, though not as extreme, cookies are my extreme addiction. But, as long as there are cookies around, I have to continue to find ways to deal with it.
This may also explain why you’ll probably never find a cookie recipe on my site….
(And, if you are thinking, “I can’t believe she is that obsessed with cookies”, it may be sad but I figure that admitting you have a problem is the first step and I’m not exaggerating when I say that I have a problem with cookies!).
