What did you say?

Tuesday morning in my room while I'm getting ready to tutor at the homeschool co-op

Wise One: I know you are going to say no, but may I pack taquitos for lunch?

Me: Why wouldn't I let you have a taquito in your lunch? Sure, go ahead. You must be feelin' a little Mexican today.

Wise One: Huh? Did you just say yes?

Me: Yes. Knock yourself out.

Wise One: (pumps fist mysteriously enthusiastically) YES!

Lunchtime at the co-op. I overhear
Wise One from across the room chatting with his friends.

Wise One: You want some? I have no idea why she let me bring it. She usually won't even let me eat it unless it's cooked. I can't believe she let me pack it in my lunch!

Me: (calling from across the room) What exactly did I let you pack?

Wise One: Cookie dough!

Me: Cookie dough? Cookie dough! Cookie dough. Ta-key-toe. Ta-key-toe. Heavens sakes! Do NOT eat that raw cookie dough. And I might make that Ear, Nose, Throat appointment my allergist recommended after all.

When I still ate sugar I loved raw cookie dough. :)
