Someone outlined something...

Guess what?! I outlined something! I had big plans to play this one cool and nonchalant, and pretend like I do it all the time...but I can't. Mostly because I'm not a cool and nonchalant kind of person. I'd like to be. I pretend to be. But I'm not.

Come on, you know what I'm talking about. You Some girl gets all dressed up and spends WAY MORE time than necessary trying to look good and then when she meets the person she got all dressed up for she waits exactly 2 seconds before her insides are screaming:

"Didn't you NOTICE? I'm not ugly today. And it was all for you. Which means I LIKE you. But now maybe I don't because you didn't notice. Which means that YOU don't like ME as much as I like YOU. And if that's the way you feel, then maybe I won't give you these cookies that I spent all day baking and decorating and obsessing over before spending hours trying to feel good about myself in a very superficial way. And it was working for a minute before you I saw you and you didn't say anything. You've ruined it. You've ruined EVERYTHING!!"

And then she runs away crying. And said person looks up from the mail wondering why she is hysterically throwing clothes at the door while changing into a sweatshirt and jeans.

(Not his fault.)

So to avoid that scene altogether, I'm just going to tell you once more -- I outlined these cookies. Its not something I've really been capable of in the past. It was a little touch and go...I wasn't sure how it would all work out. But in the end -- I love them! And I'm totally going to do it again. As soon as I can find my sweatshirt.
