Butterscotch + Chocolate Chip Cookies

Guys, something tragic happened the other day.

And when I say tragic I really mean that it’s not a big deal to anyone but me.

I found a hole in my last pair of decent shorts (read: I can actually leave the house in them). The hole is in a prime spot so it’s not like I can just cover it up with a shirt. I had a moment of sadness when I discovered the hole. It’s the same sadness I felt when my favorite pair of slippers broke.

I know, I know. I need to get over myself. This is just another first world problem.

*sigh*

At least these cookies came out pretty darn good.
