I think the bakery girl loves me. When I get stressed, I have certain go to items; coffee, Reese cups, peanut butter cookies with peanuts and peanut butter chips dipped in chocolate, kettle chips with dip, an aged scotch when the day is done…nothing really weird, but go to things. Quick things that I can pop and keep working because quitting is never an option.
Anyhooop, I think the bakery girl is on to me because I went in to get more cookies and when she saw me walk in she disappeared. At first I was flummoxed. I KNOW she saw me. When she reappeared, I had to pause because were I a single bloke I might have kissed her. She brought out a tray of ‘custom’ cookies JUST FOR ME. Thick peanut butter cookies with peanuts and DOUBLE peanut butter chips as a sandwich with peanut butter/chocolate blend in the middle…all dipped in chocolate. She said I’m the guinea pig. 🙂 I’ve never been so happy to be called a “pig” is alla my life.
I guess the point of telling you this is that we all have tells in our lives. Guess my cookie consumption is one of mine. Our characters have tells too. I have been getting to know a few of my characters a little better recently and have been trying to learn their tells. I’ll be interested to know when Kingdom’s comes out if any of you spot them. I’m trying to write a more sensory-engaging book. Let’s hope alla these cookies get me there or the extra weight is going to be really tough to explain. 🙂
Have a great reading week!
