Nothing says care package like home-baked cookies and a movie.
Honestly, I’m not sure how the chocolate chip cookies will fare on their way to my son Alex in Afghanistan. The shrink wrap will help keep them intact, but if they sit in the sun for a few hours all bets are off. Even melted they’ll be good eatin’ — just cut the cormer off the package and squeeze them out. For the curious, the yellow ones are lemon polenta cookies.
As for the movie, it’s not meant as an allegory for our presence in Afghanistan, it’s just a movie — so don’t get all philosophical on me.
It would be nice if you could help one of the groups that collects things to send over there. Some of these guys probably don’t get a lot of packages, and it’s a long, long way from home.
