The Cookie Thief

I wish I was a Cooking Mamma, really, but I'm not.
Sometimes I watch my husband cook and he enjoys so much trying different flavours, creating new dishes, I know.., it's his job, but he likes it.
But it's not really my thing, I actually hate cooking and I don't really enjoy eating either; well, I do enjoy sweet things!! :DD
I'm a lucky wife, having a cook as husband, he always treats me to delicious things, like these tiny sponge cakes in different flavours.

A woman was waiting at the airport one night,
With several long hours before her flight.
She hunted for a book in the airport shop,
Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop.

She was engrossed in her book, but happened to see,
That the man beside her, as bold as could be,
Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag between,
Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene

She read, munched cookies, and watched the clock,
As the gustly "cookie thief" diminished her stock
She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by,
Thinking, "If I wasn't so nice, I'd blacken his eye!"

With each cookie she took, he took one too.
When only one was left, she wondered what he'd do.
with a smile on his face and a nervous laugh,
He took the last cookie and broke it in half.

He offered her half, and he ate the other.
She snatched it from him and thought, "Oh brother,
This guy has some nerve, and he's also so rude,
Why, he didn't even show any gratitude!"

She had never known when she had been so galled,
And sighed with relief when her flight was called.
She gathered her belongings and headed for the gate,
Refusing to look at the "thieving ingrate".

She boarded the plane and sank in her seat,
Then sought her book, which was almost complete.
As she reached in her baggage, she gasped with surprise.
There were her bag of cookies in front of her eyes!

"If mine are here," she moaned with despair.
"Then the others were his and he tried to share!"
Too late to apologize, she realized with grief,
That she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief!!!!


  1. Ídem acá. Cuánto me gustaría que me gustara cocinar. Decí que es el trabajo de tu marido, que al mío le gustará, pero nunca tiene tiempo para hacerme nada. *pucherito*

    Vivo a comida congelada. -_-
    ¡Pero al menos es rica! ;p

  2. ¿Cuando dices que nos invitas a comer a todas? XD

    Sobre lo que dijiste en mi blog; a ver, yo también me alegro de que no sólo a los de a pie nos afecte la crisis, pero jo... es de mis marcas favoritas, me da pena que Luella esté al borde de la quiebra... :(... pero bueno, me urge más el salir de esta situación pronto, ¿verdad?


  3. jo que buena pinta tienen esas galletas.

    a mi me gusta mucho hacer reposteria, pero con la supercocina de mi piso alquilado hay muchas cosas que no puedo hacer :_

  4. With such dreamy looking cookies and obviously good food, I really wonder how you keep up that teeny tiny waistline ;)

  5. que buena pinta... (babas..)jajaja
