Norman: Mom, about those cookies you just baked... Are they for us or did you bake them for someone else?
June: They're for you!
Norman: Just checking!
Penny: 'Cause we already ate seven of 'em!
Three people eating 7 cookies isn’t so bad. I remember baking cookies frequently when I was in high school and my 6 brothers would eat the as fast as I baked them (yes, of course, I got my fair share too). Sometimes, they were eating them FASTER than I baked them. After baking about 4 pans full of them once. all I had to show for it was about a half dozen cookies – fewer than I was putting on each cookie sheet. Of course, once we all had our fill of the cookies (my mom and dad ate some), I had enough left for the cookie jar so we could get them in our school lunches (or whenever we wanted to eat them).
