“She’s my person. If I murdered someone, she’s the person I’d call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor. “
~ Grey’s Anatomy
So . . . my poor tv choices aside . . . Grey’s Anatomy gave us this wonderful concept of our “persons.” Persons who don’t judge, don’t take excuses, don’t let go, don’t forget, and don’t ever stop loving us, no matter what.
While I am truly blessed to have several persons in my life, i’ve missed my cookie dough bff, my fellow tv trash lover, my adopted sister. Who loves my mom, loves my dad, loved our family dog, knows where the snacks are kept in the kitchen, understands how hard it was as a kid to wait 20 frickin minutes for the computer timer to go off so we could switch with the boys, launched lego cars at light speed across the kitchen floor with me, careened through high school years with me with no direction whatsoever, stood next to me as I said “I do,” and cried with me when I said goodbye to Dad. And not just because I had to say goodbye, but because she had to say goodbye, too.
When I left the state for grad school, we grew up some more without each other. I probably can’t tell you what her favorite song is anymore. She probably can’t tell you what I’m struggling with at work. But none of that matters. Because every time I go home, we sit at the counter and we talk. We pull out the butter; we talk about us. We pull out the sugar; we talk about love. We pull out the vanilla; we talk about life. We pull out the flour and the salt and the soda and we make fun of our husbands. We eat some cookie dough and talk and eat some more.
This cookie dough ritual is the equivalent of cathartic therapy for me and one that we don’t plan on ever giving up. I am quite convinced that even after kids and decades and wrinkles, there is a very strong chance of us continuing the cookie dough habit. And it makes me smile.
This funfetti cookie dough is for my person. I will never ever understand or share your love of crunchy sprinkles, but I will always love you.
