Oatmeal Reagan Cookies

Since I’ve somehow managed to live more than 30 years without any of my organs exploding out of my body in jets of flame like something out of Ghost in the Shell, I figure I’m stuck being alive for a good while longer and should probably start taking care of myself so that these organs I’m stuck with don’t shrivel up, turn black, and start playing Pac-Man with my well-being.

This is why I’ve decided lately to make a concerted effort to eat healthier than I learned to back as a child in the 80s: sugary cereal for breakfast, soda for every inkling of thirst, and cake, candy, donuts, pie, and any other desserts at every opportunity. You could probably still tap my circulatory system like a maple tree and enjoy my syrupy sweetness on your unhealthy breakfast.

I had the opportunity earlier today to eat a number of those things (and probably worse), but I instead found myself opting for an oatmeal raisin cookie (the healthiest thing on hand), and I enjoyed it every bit as much as I would the glaziest doughnut.
