cookie friday is the moment you realize your headache went away after taking four ibuprofen and lying on the floor slowly rubbing your forehead with your knuckles

aleks [3:41 PM]
“at last”

aleks [3:41 PM]
“sweet relief”

hannah [3:42 PM]
it is also a practice in discipline and restraint

hannah [3:42 PM]
you can deny other cookie during the week because you know that on friday

hannah [3:42 PM]
you can finally say

hannah [3:42 PM]
“yes”

hannah [3:42 PM]
to cookie

hannah [3:42 PM]
yes to life

aleks [3:44 PM]
cookie is the punctation to the work week, a brief respite from our endless toil

hannah [3:45 PM]
the official beginning of the weekend

aleks [3:46 PM]
seasons change,

hannah [3:46 PM]
so do cookies

aleks [3:46 PM]
cookies come into your life, and cookies go

hannah [3:47 PM]
but it’s heartwarming to know

aleks [3:47 PM]
that the cookies you love are always in your heart

hannah [3:48 PM]
and if you’re very lucky

aleks [3:48 PM]
