When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose. — Dylan.
To tell you the truth, I use this logic myself to justify my own frequent nibbling on oatmeal treats. I am aware I am just fooling myself, though.
No-bake cookies have oatmeal too! As well as sugar, butter, etc. I suppose we’re all guilty of this — it was just the “don’t you know anything” tone that suggested to me Grandma does NOT know she’s fooling herself. I figure if she wants cookies for dinner, let her have them. If I make it to 88 I’m going to eat whatever I want too!
Grandma’s always got an excuse for her horrible eating habits although she’ll scold you for not having finished your greens haha. Guess at that point you can say you’ve earned the right to do whatever you want and no one can tell you otherwise
Haha yes there are perks to old age after all. 🙂
I mean, of all the cookies she could have eaten, oatmeal probably is the healthiest, so there’s that!
True! Maybe Whole Foods has flax seed cookies or something fiber-filled, but those would start a conversation about one of Grandma’s favorite topics — bowel movements — so I definitely won’t suggest those. 🙂
Haha yeah that would backfire on you real fast!
literally and figuratively lol
