Some people like to wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee, or a plate of hot bacon. You could count me in for both of those things, but freshly baked cookies would make the list, too. That said, I would be very suspicious if I woke up in the middle of the night and suspected – by smell or by the sounds of pots and pans moving around – that someone unknown was in my house baking them for me. This is exactly what happened to a man in Michigan this week. He heard some suspicious noises coming from his kitchen and called the police to report an intruder. The police arrived and found a woman in the kitchen baking cookies. It turns out that the man’s wife had stuffed some clothing under the covers in bed so it looked like she was there, then went down to the kitchen to bake a surprise batch of cookies!
Who knew that a simple batch of cookies could turn into such a big deal? I hope that there were enough to share with the police who responded to the call as well as with her husband.
