I love baking cookies at Christmas and this year I brought a different assortment to work each day this week. Monday was chocolate mint, Tuesday chocolate chunk and butter pecan, and today Christmas cookies. My co-workers were quite happy and I was pleased to see them wiping cookie crumbs off their smiling faces.
Two of them said something similar to me: one said she told her husband about the cookies and he asked “can she come bake us some?” and another said her husband asked if she could bring some home for him. This got me to thinking that I no longer have a husband but I still have annoying husband-type-tasks to deal with – you know stuff with technology and heavy furniture and household projects I could do but just don’t want to.
So maybe I should set up an exchange: I bake your husband cookies and he comes over and gets my DVD/VCR combo to work properly with the new TV. Or I make him a cake and he hangs picture frames on my wall evenly. I already tried this concept out this spring when a friend volunteered her rocket scientist husband to put together my new IKEA entertainment center (believe me, it needed a rocket scientist!) And he got fresh local maple syrup out of it.
I don’t want another husband + I like baking + I need crap done that I don’t want to do = what is your husband good at and what is his favorite dessert?
