Bittersweet Disappointment

I’m always in a mad rush before leaving for work. Today I hastily grabbed a rubbermaid container that I thought was clean, and placed one of the husband’s delicious double chocolate chip cookies in it. But when I opened the container at work I first noticed the rank smell…then the residue. I have no idea what had previously occupied the container, but the foul substance (think ectoplasm a la Ghostbusters) it left behind had saturated the cookie, rendering it inedible…and really really nasty. I could have cried. Thankfully my apple was unharmed (though a poor substitute). Sigh.
