Any time I see a man sitting on an inflatable couch giving away cookies for free, it's cause to investigate. His endeavor is called Free Cookies NYC. Basically, he goes out with his couch, and gives away his free, homemade, vegan cookies.
Yes, you read right, they're vegan. No milk, no eggs, no beef, but lots of sugar. Scott said that they have more sugar than your average chocolate chip cookie because of the whole vegan thing.
Oh, I guess you're wondering how they tasted. Well...
I politely declined a free cookie. I claimed that I have this thing with sugar, which is true to an extent. For years I threw beaucoup sugar into my body every day, and a few years ago I drastically cut down on my sugar intake. Living on two big bowls of Frosted Flakes every morning with a side of cupcakes and drinking sugar sodas all day can only go so far. You might think with a diet like that I was quite a load. Actually not. Maybe that makes it even worse. But where was I...
Oh yeah. I declined claiming the sugar thing, but I admit that I just wasn't ready to accept a cookie from a total stranger. Even one with a business card, a smile, and an inflatable couch.
If I ever see him again, maybe I'll take him up on his offer.
