The Big Box

December 9, 2011


Every year there is a major cookie baking process that commences for about 16 hours, doughs are whipped together, chilled, spread, baked, glazed, frosted, taken out for a test drive by the resident taste testers of the WikiJan household.  Then they are boxed up to be taken to our  doctor and Vet’s office and for the last 3 or 4 years the big green machine where I work.  This box of cookies is looked forward to every year by The Work Peeps and those offices we deliver too.  At the big green machine this box of cookies seems to be taking on a life of its own…This year I get to add with great joy to the big box list one more office, they have no idea what is about to hit them.

When we were still in the Army I would spend every December 23rd cooking pan after pan of Gingerbread Men then on Christmas Eve we would start late in the afternoon driving from gate to gate on whatever post we were stationed at and pass them out to those who had pulled gate guard duty on the one night everyone wants to be home with family. The manned gates that always stood out to me were the real out-of-the-way gates as the main or well-traveled gates were always given goodies and what have you but the far out-of-the-way gates seemed to be forgotten.  The surprise and gratitude from those guards were something to behold they just could not believe we would go so far out of our way just to offer them some cookies.  We would then once it got good and dark go look at the light displays in our town munching on popcorn and drinking soda or Starbucks just enjoying a bit of time together. Sadly we are no longer close to a military post to continue our little tradition.

So tell me if you were to receive a WikiJan big box of cookies what would be the first selections devoured?
