The Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day
I made these last minute… kind of in a hurry… not my best work ever… But still…
25¢ each???? SERIOUSLY????
I donated 2 dozen of these cookies to the speech team's bake sale. I thought it was a worthy cause and I'll admit, I thought it might be a little bit of good advertising. I packaged them neatly in little cellophane bags. I actually felt like I was making a pretty nice donation. All the bake sale items were marked when they arrived (not by the people who baked them). Anyway… I couldn't be there for the bake sale but my daughter told me they were marked at 25¢ each. Individual brownies (made from a mix and packaged in saran wrap I'm sure) were marked at 50¢ each.
I'm hurt, insulted and discouraged. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother.
Oh well… I guess some days are like that, "even in Australia".
