AN HONEST EXCHANGE

  1. Cashier: Are you going to eat your cookie right now or do you want it in a bag?
  2. Me: I would like to have it in a bag so I can set it on the table and imagine I will wait till after my food comes and then break down and eat it now.
  3. Cashier: [...]
  4. Me: The pretense is important to me.
  5. Cashier: [hands me my cookie in a bag] Happy pretending!
