Were you wondering what I was going to do with my other new cookie cutter? You know, the oddly shaped one. The squarish one that looks like it has a bracket on each side. (The top note cut for all you paper crafters.) No? You weren't wondering? You don't care? Maybe you could just pretend. Just this once.
I don't think people say "thank you" enough in this world. I know I don't. A few days ago, I had a repairman come to my house and fix my oven. Yes, he was paid for his time. And yes, it was his job. But still -- I was REALLY happy to have it fixed. And I wanted to let him know.
He was packing his tools, and I was thinking, "What can I do to say thank you? Should I give him a cookie? Will he think I'm creepy because I'm giving a complete stranger food? Will he be offended? (Offended?! At a cookie? WHAT is wrong with me?) Should I walk him to the door? Should I just ignore him, so he doesn't think I'm hovering?" In the end, I rushed out a "Thank-you-so-much-for-fixing-my-oven-I'm-really-glad-to-be-able-to-use-it-again!" He smiled vaguely at me as he walked out the door. I'm not even sure that he understood what I had said.
