Cookies: A Conversation With Luke

As we enter the kitchen after dinner at Panera, he spots a fortune cookie on the counter….

  • L: Can I have this fortune cookie?
  • Me: No, you had a cookie at dinner.
  • L: But I didn’t have a fortune cookie.
  • Me (more firmly): You already had a cookie at dinner.
  • L: But this is super crunchy! It’s not even a cookie.
  • Me: IT HAS COOKIE IN THE NAME! It’s printed right on the package!
  • L: But
  • Me: NO! (Please tell me he’s going to be a lawyer and that all this arguing is just practice for a stellar career….)
