There is this old woman who lives on the same street as I do. She’s probably one of the nicest people that I’ve ever met. She always talks to everyone, and even gives out free cookies to anyone who comes to her house. Recently she had a problem with her air conditioner, but she couldn’t afford to get it fixed. The people in the community helped her out by finding a company to do AC repair in Brooklyn and paying for the cost of the repairs. She couldn’t believe it when she saw a repair worker come to her home to fix the air conditioner in the middle of summer.
The old woman was so thankful that everyone was able to chip in to pay for the repairs for her air conditioner that she wanted to do something for everyone. She decided to make enough cookies to feed the entire neighborhood. She bought the ingredients from the store in large amounts and then mixed them all to make batches of cookies that she would box up and give to everyone one, one by one. She was like a person who was running a restaurant or bakery all by herself. I’ve never heard of anyone doing that much work by themselves and not charging a single penny.
I was glad to finally get my box of cookies from the old woman, because I had been looking forward to them all week. You can eat them at any temperature, but I always like to eat them while they’re warm, and then dip them in a little bit of milk. Sometimes I even make an ice cream sandwich with them and a little bit of vanilla ice cream in between. Attached to the box of cookies was a thank you note, saying thanks for the air conditioner repair.
