Mmmmm....goodness the smell of home baked cookies when they are still baking. My wife was downstairs baking some chocolate chip cookies, oh my goodness they were so on point for sure! Anyway now that I'm thinking of it, she really shouldn't be eating them things since she's got her diet thing down pat and working well too, looks like I need to get down there and "confiscate" the goodies in order to "help" her with her diet, knamean? (wild giggles) The sense of smell is one of the great wonders of the world if you ask me. It's wild how a certain smell can trigger a specific memory of a specific event or time whenever you catch a whiff of that smell. Or how smelling a particular perfume or cologne will bring a long forgotten friend back momentarily? Every now and then when dinner is cooking downstairs and I'm up here at my PC doing whatever and the scent of Cheryl's cooking wafts up through the vent...it takes me back to when I was a wild teenager and Mom was cooking up sum' terrible and I was runnin' home from the b-ball court, late for dinner, hungry than a mongron, ready to throw down, and runnin in the house and the smell of the gravy and chicken and biscuits and macaroni and greens and Lord have mercy who knows what else she had cooked up...mmmm. mmmm, mmmmm!
*whew*...sorry, see what I mean?
Now back to them chocolate chip cookies...*wiping crumbs from keyboard* I would offer y'all some but from reading most of your blogs, and what with me being such a caring and compassionate individual, it's apparent to me that these types of goodies would be detrimental to your diets also. Y'all be good...while I just do the right thing and help all my friends stay on track :o)
3 brothers and sisters helped me to understand.

I WANT SOME COOKIES!! My stepdaughter made some for Xmas and I ate as much as I could before starting my low carb diet. Hey Greggy, this girl has got to lose some pounds ya know, so no sweets for me. But the remaining cookies are sitting on a canister on the table calling out to me: "Cheeeeerrrylll...Cherrrrrryyylll...don't you love us anymore?" To which I reply: "Yeeesss, but I have to stay away you're not good for me." Just as I get over my craving and think all is good in dietville; I visit your blog while you're smelling and eating fresh baked cookies. Thanks alot Greg.
