I’ve been knee-deep in family fun time the past two weeks! I JUST got back from San Diego where I got to see my new nephew and throw a fun party for my mom’s 60th birthday!
But sometime between the two family vacays with two tiny children who require two tons of crap…I made some cookies for a podiatrist.
As I mentioned a few days ago, I had to get my toenail removed. Ewwww. But why did I make the podiatrist cookies? That’s a really good question. I’m not like a super nice person or anything like that. I don’t make cookies for all my doctors visits! But this doctor cut me a really big break in a very bad toenail situation, and for some reason I could not get the thought out of my head that I should make him some sugar cookies.
But I felt really odd and stupid making him sugar cookies. Was he totally going to think I was hitting on him with my sweet treats? Ha.
But then I remembered this thing this guy I dated once said, he told me, “I’ve decided that when I get the idea to do something nice for someone, I’m just going to do it and not feel stupid or self-conscious about it.”
And I loved that SO MUCH. Because so many times we think of doing something thoughtful, but don’t because we worry about how the other person might interpret it. But at the end of the day, cookies are cookies! And have you ever been mad at someone for making you cookies? So I figured, let the podiatrist think I’m insane, he did me a solid, and I had the feeling I should thank him, and baking creepy cookies is how I thank people who really deserve thanking.
So, how did the doctor like them? I HAVE NO IDEA. I was too embarrassed to deliver them and made Eric do it.
I plan on doing a full blown Sugar Cookie post soon with all the of questions I get asked about baking sugar cookies and royal icing! Hold on to your toenails, it’s gonna be good. But until then you can check out my “Bake It” section for the other cookies I’ve made!
Lots of love and creepy cookies,
**UPDATE** Haha they called and said they loved them and quote “appreciated having patients like me.” Gold STARS!!!
