Chips Ahoy, Matey!

It’s been one week since I created my blog, which features my quest to perform one good deed per day up until New Year’s Eve, and I’ve discovered that a good deed is a good deed, no matter how small.  Even if you believe your positive actions are unnoticed or meaningless, chances are, they’re not.

Take yesterday, for example:  I wound up being so busy with school, voice lessons, and musical auditions that by 5:30, I realized I had not even thought about doing an RAC the entire day.  In my haste, I quickly concocted a good act, which, to me, seemed like a last ditch effort to complete my task for the day.  I had a (almost) unopened package of Chips Ahoy Cookies sitting in my pantry and found myself grabbing these as I made my way out the door.  I planned to share them with the other auditioners I would be sitting with that evening.  I realized that I hadn’t put much thought into it, and it could even be perceived as attempt to push away the thousands of calories I’d consume by devouring the package.  Still, it’s a gesture I wouldn’t normally do (I mean, I love my cookies…c’mon?  Who really wants to part with cookies?), so I figured it would suffice.  My waistline also breathed a sigh of relief as they scurried out the door.

You get to be pretty popular when you’re the bearer of baked goods.  I’m pretty sure that out of the infamous Butcher, Baker, and Candlestick Maker figures, the Baker was the most eligible bachelor.  Am I right ladies?  We can get our own cuts of beef and Yankee Candles, but a man who bakes?!?
