apropos pastries and such, tonight, on my way back from food shopping (=once i finally stopped procrastinating and got my ass to the supermarket i was wandering the lanes up and down in lack of inspiration and focus and left with edamame and chocolate bars) i squeezed inside the coffee shop down on the corner. the guys were already done cleaning and about to lock the place up when i begged them to sell me some coffee. they were really accommodating while i needed to empty my two bags of veggies on the floor in search for the wallet, little miss messy,and meanwhile the guy asked me if id like a cookie for on the way. of course! i can’t say no to cookies, plus those are one of my favorites (!) golden coconut clouds melting on your tongue. so i chewed, smiled, paid, repacked and was just about to leave when he handed me a bag of those little miracles “for after supper”.
damn, that guy sure knew how to charm cookie monsters. i was totally impressed.
