Last Sunday Garry came home from church with a large briefcase in hand. I was mystified; Garry isn't a briefcase-carrying fellow. Later he revealed its purpose: transporting treats in and out of Elders Quorum meetings.
Inside the briefcase was a large plastic food container with the following message taped on top:
"Welcome to your week with the Covert Cookie Case. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to provide a minimum of 40 units of delicious homemade goodies to your fellow Elders next Sunday. Remember, Elder, we have been asked to keep this on the DL for security and crowd control purposes. If you succeed at your mission, you will be rewarded with praise from your fellow quorum members. Good luck, Elder."
Apparently the men in our ward have snack time every Sunday! Ha!
Luckily for me, Garry's responsibility didn't become my responsibility. He made his own treats: Candy Cane Fudge and Raspberry Fudge Balls. I'm quite partial to the Candy Cane Fudge.
The guys at church liked the treats, too. Go Garry.
