Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 01, 2015




I was just about to sit down and think of a cute story to tell you all when my door bell rang.  Hesitantly, I walked over to the window, I wanted to see if I could catch a glimpse of whoever it was.  I wasn’t expecting anyone.  What I saw was your typical salesman.  Ugh, my first instinct was to carefully make my escape back into the kitchen unnoticed.  I kinda stopped for a second, and then; I don’t know why; but I opened the door.  I think he was more surprised than I was.  Considering it is 70 degrees today in Chicago, and I’m probably the only idiot inside!  He introduced himself and promised me he wasn’t selling anything, that is anything tangible.  What he was selling was actually himself.  Not to me, Oh my god no, but in an old school sort of way.  He was walking around the neighborhood introducing himself because he was new to our area.  His name was Ryan, he was nice, he liked my dog, he was petting my dog and slowly I began to let my guard down.  It’s a shame that we live in a world that we can’t trust anyone, but today because I did, I met a very nice guy, with a very warm smile that I actually had some things in common with.  He went to the same college as one of my kids and his brother graduated from the same college as another son of mine.  We talked for a while and I took his information with pleasure.  I give Ryan a lot of credit walking door to door and because of his friendly and outgoing personality he put a smile on my face and I think I may have done the same for him!!!  Thanks Ryan!
