October is National Cookie Month
October is National Cookie Month, a time when we can all rationalize turning a blind eye to our diets and take a bite or two or twenty of one of our favorite snacks. When between meal hunger strikes we all become Cookie Monster’s and raid the cupboard for a tasty Oreo or chocolate chip or macaroon. Actually, the type of cookies we like say something about our personality.
Here are some examples from family therapist Jim Franklin as reported by our sister station KKCB in Duluth MN.
Chocolate Chip — You’re as American as apple pie, and you’re raising your kids with the traditional values you treasure. Your low-key approach to life makes you a favorite with family and friends because you bring a steadying influence to the most chaotic situations.
Graham Crackers — You’re softhearted and kind with a taste for nostalgia. You have many fond memories of your childhood, and your closet is probably stuffed with keepsakes from years gone by. But you don’t dwell on the past because you’re too busy making memories today
Sugar Cookies — You’re a nonconformist who believes that variety is the spice of life. Your avid interest in a multitude of subjects, teamed with your antiestablishment sensibility, makes you a challenging companion. You may not always take the safe path, but there’s no doubt that life with you is never dull.
Sandwich Cookies — Whether you eat the creme filling first or dunk them in milk, your choice says you’re a creative person with a vivid imagination. A born storyteller, you’re often the center of attention at parties, regaling your pals with funny, sometimes outrageous, tales.
