Synopsis of a Snack

Pal J: "Mrs. L., these cookies are flawless."

Me: "What a nice thing to say, J, and what a great word! Could you tell Sarah what that means?"

Pal J:
"It means really, really good."

Me:
"Absolutely. You're exactly right. Something is flawless if there is absolutely nothing wrong with it."

Sarah: "J, you are flawless!"

[long pause for cookie eating]

Pal J (with incredible kindness and sincerity): "Sarah, you are the flawless-est."

Sarah (laughing): "You are!"

Pal J: "No, you are!"

Yes, I serve playdate snacks by candlelight, along with milk in bowls for easy dipping access. Take that, Martha Stewart.
