No One Makes Cookies in the Bedroom

Dear "Bree",

I want to believe in you. I really do. Why shouldn't there be sweet, innocent 16-year old girls with geeky boy friends concerned with nothing more than the usual teenage issues? So what if they just happen to be involved in mysterious cult religons?

But no one makes cookies in their bedroom. They make cookies in the kitchen. The only possible exception to this would be the kids that live in dorms, and that's because they don't have a kitchen, or because they keep illegal toaster ovens under the bed.

And so, the Burger King guy can come out now. I know you're behind this.

....

Since authenticity and sincerity sometimes seems to be in short supply these days, I guess it's not weird that Hank's soda bottles are in fact labeled as "Genuine Hank's. Their vanilla cream, by the way, is delicious. Very, very delicious. So creamy, so vanilla-y. So nice in these last, waning days of summer.

I wonder why vanilla cream soda isn't more popular - everyone loves vanilla, right? And yet it's always cola, root beer, lemon lime. Maybe grape.

  1. We love Hank's beverages here in Philly, but I haven't tried the vanilla yet! I'll have to keep an eye out for it!

  2. Oh my goodness! Hank's is the ONLY cream soda worth drinking! I tried a different brand of cream soda once when I was 9yrs old, and it was nasty! 15yrs later, when a date ordered a Hank's, I worked up the guts to try a sip, and since then have almost always had a few bottles in the fridge.
