Cookies fix everything.

Thank goodness it’s Friday! I say this mostly because I probably had the worst day of my life yesterday…well, not of my life, but the worst day that I have had in a loooong time. I had a huge migraine yesterday that was topped off by someone arguing with me full-force, not in person, but over the Internet. Seriously? I was over it. I didn’t even consider it a “fight” because I didn’t have anything in me to fight. 
Let’s get real here…fights are childish and we only look back on them to laugh years from now when we are old. I guess I have matured enough to not really give much effort to arguments. To me, it’s not worth it. Anyway, can you tell I don’t like to fight? I don’t like to scream, yell, slap, hit, curse, or feel the need to hash things out with others at the top of my longs over meaningless things. 
Okay, let’s talk about how cookies fix everything. Yep, sweets are my rescue on a bad day. These cookies pretty much say “screw everything and why don’t we curl up on the couch with a glass of milk for dunking.” 

So, today cookies.
 Cookies that fix everything from broken hearts to fist fights.
 Not that I get in fist fights.
 No fights. Just cookies.

It’s Friday. 
A Happy Day. Let’s Celebrate.
