Surprise

Cookies

Thursday night after the Christmas party, I arrived in my office to find a tray of 72 cookies, six each of twelve types. Such a beautiful bounty of baked goods I'd never seen before. I won them from a woman in HR in a charity auction a few months ago, and had nearly forgotten that they would be arriving some random day in December. In addition to the lovely tray of 72 cookies, another 72 awaited me in a separate package on my desk.

Now, normally, a cookie is not something that is terribly difficult to get rid of. 144 cookies, however, is a force to be reckoned with. It took the help of my coworkers on two separate workdays and two game groups to dispatch them, and there are still a dozen or two left.

The peanut butter cup cookies in the upper-right were the best. Those went quickly. The cherry ones on the left were the only bad ones of the bunch; there are still several of those remaining...

Too bad you didn't take any after pictures of how the tray looked once people got into it. That tray was looking very sad when it left here on Saturday.

Love it!
