I ate the last cookie. My wife complained that if it were her, she would have left it for me.
I said, “see, you got exactly what you wanted!”November 3, 2017 9:15 am at 9:15 am #1395351The little I knowParticipant
That is an ancient line, quoted from Hershele Ostropolier.
Personally, if my wife ate only the last cookie, I’d be thrilled.November 3, 2017 9:28 am at 9:28 am #1395360☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
TLIK, I originally heard it as a Yekke and Chossid at shalishudis joke, and I think it was a piece of herring.
The other Yekke/Chossid/shalishudis/herring joke is that the Yekke tells the gabbai to prepare an extra piece of herring for shalishudis because his chassidishe cousin is coming for Shabbos.
One fellow doesn’t show up, though, and everyone is eying the piece of herring but no one takes it.
Suddenly, the lights go out, and a loud shriek is heard.
The lights go back on, and a hand with ten forks in it is seen.November 3, 2017 10:43 am at 10:43 am #1395401always runs with scissors fastParticipant
THis is such a touchy and nerve racking SENSITIVE ISSUE TO me personally, that I just had to come in to the conversation. !!! I am having a bad life experience with my spouse, in that he polishes off anything and everything i have just brought into the house, without considering i may have wanted some too.
For example, if i bring in a bag of SUnsweet prunes, for baking oatmeal cookies, the next morning I’ll find just a couple pieces left in the bottom of the bag! OR cookies, chips, fruit especially. I feel like i have to hide the things I am planning to do a recipe with.
In fact, though, I think he may have a serious sleep disorder because some mornings he claims he wasn’t aware that he ate or drank. He just goes through like a whole honey cake with his paws, it mamish looks like a bear has been through it, leaving a heavy trail of crumbs all over…its actually turning me off.

WB, arwsf. You’ve been away for a long time.November 3, 2017 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1395428
Someone who values a cookie over the happiness of his spouse is a slave to his stomach.November 3, 2017 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1395441

There is such a thing as nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder (NS-RED), where someone can prepare food or eat while not fully conscious. Maybe a doctor’s visit would be more productive than hiding food, since he’s saying he’s not aware of the nighttime eating.November 3, 2017 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1395440
What if both the husband and wife insist that their spouse be the one to eat the last cookie?
“You have it, dear! No, its for you!”November 3, 2017 2:54 pm at 2:54 pm #1395464
“Let’s split it!”November 3, 2017 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1395476

there should never be a situation that there is always one left.November 5, 2017 10:33 am at 10:33 am #1395682
She should always be baking more! 😉November 8, 2017 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #1399088Pro schnappsParticipant
I think this is a much deeper issue. Why does he feel that he needs the last cookie? Whats wrong with the second to last cookie? Seriously.November 8, 2017 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1399180Frau ScheniererParticipant
i hear you about the second to last cookie but that is opening a whole other can of worms. to get to the bottom of this , i would highly suggest you stay focused and come up with a solution about the last cookie being eaten.November 8, 2017 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1399163againstallthishockParticipant
Not only that. Think about what is important in life. Why would anyone waste their time talking about unsweet prunes. I dont have the time for discussing such trivial matters.November 8, 2017 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1399158againstallthishockParticipant
I agree with proschnapps. But I think it goes even deeper. Both the husband and wife must have compulsive eating disorder. Why they both so into food? That is the root of the problem.November 8, 2017 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #1399204Pro schnappsParticipant
I dont know. When i was growing up there was no such thing as eating disorders. Maybe we were worse off maybe we werent but thats not here nor there.November 8, 2017 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm #1399208Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant

He should always be buying more.November 8, 2017 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #1399218
He’s always buying her more dough.November 8, 2017 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #1399221YParticipant
You guys seriously have extra time on your hands go find something valuable to do.November 8, 2017 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #1399230pro geshmake yiddenParticipant
You know what I like to say?
Forget about who eats the last cookie.
Who makes a louder bracha??
And a bracha acharona? Do we even remember that such things exist??

Yes, indeed. We should fight with swords over holier things than cookies.November 8, 2017 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #1399291Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant
progeshmakeyidden – maybe that’s WHY I wanted the last cookie – I wanted to be able to make a bracha!
RY – like what? chocolate?
