I always liked this one... like this voice of The Cars best.
The driving practice continues to go well. Squeaky even dared to head out onto "the loop" which is exactly what it sounds like... a 3 mile loop. He made one lap and then decided that was daring enough for the day.
I am very proud of his progress and how well he has taken to this... for cautious Squeaky, that is a wonderful thing.
I muttered "Oh shoot... don't let me forget that I have to make a batch of oatmeal cookies."
"You're making oatmeal cookies?"
"Yes" I said. "To take to the beach... with walnuts, no raisins."
"Do you know how to make oatmeal cookies?" he demanded.
"Of course I know how to make oatmeal cookies!"
"No no no... you can't say that like that... you have never once made me oatmeal cookies!"
"I have too made cookies!"
"You have made peanut butter cookies. You have made sugar cookies. You make those sinckerdoodle things... but NO OATMEAL COOKIES WITH RAISINS IN THEM."
"Squeaky... I hate raisins, especially in oatmeal cookies. That is why I never make oatmeal cookies with raisins in them for you. Besides your favorite cookies are Snickerdoodles."
"No. No. My favorite cookies are NOT Snickerdoodles... my favorite cookies are OATMEAL WITH RAISINS IN THEM."
There was silence for a moment or two. I was feeling kind of bad. Geeze I was sure that snickerdoodles were his favorites. I mean, positive.
(The car pulls to a full stop and Squeaky puts it in park so he can stare at me.)
"Okay... okay... so you're going to make this guy... this strange guy... oatmeal cookies and you've never made me oatmeal cookies the way I like them... and you want me to go stay at the Bear's house on Friday and not come home until you're gone Saturday right?"
"Well, yes, actually."
"NO. I want a batch of oatmeal cookies with raisins in them or I'm not going to the Bear's."
Guess who is making two batches of oatmeal cookies... one with walnuts and one with raisins?
