If You Give a Mouse a Cookie…

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: If you give a mouse a cookie….

I am excited to head to Toronto soon for the Meeting Planners International annual conference.

I thought it would be fun to have something more than just my business card to give when I meet new people there. So I had the not-so brilliant idea of getting cookies with my logo on them.

Don’t get me wrong, these things are beautiful! An Oreo dipped in white chocolate with my logo and matching sprinkles. What could be better?

Tasting good would be important. I opened the box to find one waiting on top, lonely. An extra for me to try to verify the remainder of the contents.

I ate it. There is no denying it. Darn them! They are AMAZING!

I took a before and after picture for this very post. But when I started the post I didn’t like the pics. So I had to open and eat another one to make sure I got the “Coffee Table” shot.

Purely for aesthetic purposes, of course.

I now have 8 days before I leave for the conference and 83 remaining cookies. This could be a problem.

I’ve taped the box, stacked another on top, and removed them from my office.

Will it be enough? To keep this mouse at bay?

I think it’s time for milk….
