    I grew up on odd-tasting cookies that my mother had made and then put into the freezer for later. I was used to seeing cookies re-appear several seasons after they were first baked. And one of my grandmothers would often make fresh cookies from stale ingredients…

    There is only one fruitcake in the entire world. And it gets passed around from person to person.

    What? No fruitcake?

    It’s because all the sugar that gets knocked off the rest of the cookies ends up all over the ones on the bottom. Each of those cookies ends up with the sugar content of three regular ones!

    I regularly bake cookies and freeze them. Rule of thumb: if they aren’t going to be eaten within about 24 hours, they go in the freezer. Otherwise, they do get stale, and then…yuck!

    When I met my husband, he complained about his mother’s cookies. Thought he was exaggerating until I saw that he didn’t even eat some (they were in the back seat of his car, on the floor) she had mailed to him at college. Made the mistake of eating some of hers after we got married. I finally figured out the problem. She grew up in a large family, so cookies didn’t last long enough to get stale, but she only had two kids, so the cookies got stale before they were all eaten. When she baked, she’d sample them when they were fresh, but didn’t freeze them, so by the time other people ate them, they were stale. I finally told her, so she froze them the next time, and they were delicious! Unfortunately, she doesn’t have much freezer space where they live now, so it is back to stale food.

    I’ve always wondered why they call that plastic fruit brick CAKE! Icky stuff.

    If they really want to take it to the next level they should bake Halloween cookies to fake them out. And put touches of green frosting on it that looks like mold.

    You’ve beaten this dead horse, and beaten it some more, and yet you’ve still missed the point. By miles. Again. Meanwhile, I’VE CONCEDED THAT YOUR VERSION OF EVENTS IS POSSIBLE. You somehow are stuck on the point that I’ve already buried. I don’t care if the kids are acting like toddlers or third graders. My larger point was that the kids are not acting like 24 year-old Cal Tech grad students.
    It is MY OPINION that the strip is more entertaining when it creates a more “authentic” world in which kids act like kids. In MY OPINION, humor that arises out of truth (as opposed to fancy) is better. Let them be smart as whips, I don’t care! Let some of them be dumb as all hell! So what?! Just have them be like kids.
    I’ll prove how intractable you are. Just answer this yes or no, if you can. (I am absolutely certain you cannot.) Have you ever heard the expression, “Nobody likes a know-it-all” anywhere, from anyone, apart from me? Have you? Because you imply that I have some unique and weird viewpoint. I don’t. It’s a common, age-old expression of a thought shared by many. You need not be an anti-intellectual to say it, or to think it. I am sure, though, that you will refuse to acknowledge that fact. Your bizarre disposition makes taking the perspective of others utterly impossible. I might say I pity you for that, but I don’t care.

    Speaking of kids acting like kids, EVERY CHILD IS DIFFERENT. And 1st graders can act like 2 year old toddlers and more mature than college students in the same breath.
    For instance I’ve never known my kids to turn down any cookies, even old stale ones and yet one of my daughter’s friends can’t stand anything sweet (I’m the 1st grade room mom so I see snack time at the parties) she’ll eat carrots and pretzels and grapes but wouldn’t touch the Fruit Roll-ups or Smarties.
