A Few Extra Ingredients

40E0794D-69C6-43F6-B78A-090720E93602“I guess it won’t be harmful to add a few extra ingredients to the recipe,” Darlene said.

“Well, Darlene,” her best friend, Andrea said, “I’m not trying to cajole you into doing something you’re not comfortable doing, but I do think it would, shall we say, improve the final product.”

“Let’s hope it won’t ruin things,” Darlene said. “People are counting on me and the last thing I want to do is to deteriorate the flavor.”

“If anything,” Andrea said, “it will enhance it for everyone.”

Later that night, as the party progressed, everyone was marveling at how great Darlene’s cookies were. “Darlene,” Greg said, “these are, far and away, the best oatmeal raisin cookies I’ve ever tasted. They are truly exemplary.”

“Thanks, Greg,” Darlene said. “But Andrea deserves the credit. She brought over some special ingredients that she suggested I add to the recipe”

“Whatever the recipe is,” Sammy, another guest at the party said, “you should apply for a copyright. The more of these cookies I eat, the more I want.”

Darlene looked over at Andrea and smiled. “So do you think we can get a copyright for our recipe for pot-infused oatmeal raisin cookies?”

Both women broke out in an almost uncontrollable laughter.

      Actually it’s been around three months since the last time I had any pot, so far from addicted.
