Cookie Theif

"Arushi Ahuja"
Wonderland in Dubai!
"Did you steal the cookies again?"
My mother furrowed her brows,
That in itself scared me and I lied-
Shaking my head in denial,
My mouth stuffed with one too many,
And a few in my hands behind my back,
As many a soft little plump hand can carry!
My mouth littered with sprinkles 
And the whiff of chocolate around,
I gulped and swallowed one aloud!
She crossed her arms standing tall,
Scary and beautiful much like my doll,
I gaped at her as she pierced me with her eyes,
Waiting for me to give away the lies...
I think she got tired and took me to bed,
Where I ate the rest of cookies till I slept!

  1. The lie is a nice end, Arushi. Had the truth been told punishment, or a stern talk, would HAVE to follow. Some things aren't worth getting worked up about if there is an easy way out.

    1. NYC here has a nice Hershey showroom in downtown Manhatten. It's a fun place to visit. London has a neat M&M showroom, fun too.

    2. i love to visit this place in Dubai... this and candylicious... Pure Heaven!!

  2. Neat memory of a theft not very satisfying in the long run ....
