I started baking early today, about 5:45 a.m.
I needed to make a double batch so that I could serve cookies for the morning’s workshops on campus and have another plate to take to the Community Foundation for a Better Hartsville board meeting over my lunch hour.
And while I was working to socialize with friends and colleagues via sugary morsels (which turned out beautifully, by the way), the Economist had posted a sweet article (post-dated for tomorrow) about social media, citizen journalists and the bread-and-butter implications for professional journalists.
But before I could read the piece, I needed to confirm that I didn’t mind the Economist’s new cookies policy.
I ate three of my own cookies before I’d consumed even a half-cup of joe and clicked through the annoying cookie-policy caution with far less attention than I’d given to the 600+ calories I’d ignorantly consumed.
Maybe I need to be more like Norah — stick to cutting healthy fresh vegetables instead of messing with socializing sweets.
What would an informed citizen do?
