When I grow up I will own a pony and eat all the ice cream

This is a story of a day past, when I was but a wee girl.

My mom and I had just finished grocery shopping, and I had pulled aside a bag of marshmallows I'd asked her to buy. I opened it up, before asking belatedly: "May I have one?"

"Sure," my mom replied.

I ate that marshmallow and it was the most delicious marshmallow ever. I naturally decided to ask for more.

"May I eat the rest?"

"...What? The whole bag?"

"Yeah!"

"...No."

I was shocked! How could she have turned down my perfectly reasonable request? Answers were demanded!

"Why not?!"

Mom turned to look at me, then walked over and took the bag away from me before uttering the dreaded word: "Because."

Because? That wasn't a real reason! Parents are sooo unfair!

I vowed to her, that very day, that when I grew up, I was going to buy a bag of marshmallows and eat it all at once and there would be NOTHING she could do about it. SO THERE.

Vows like these hint at great character and strong pepper sauce. Hot damn, now we're cooking with petroleum!

I agree, but this application still needs revision to fill out all those one-line paragraphs. Also, I don't see any descriptions of anyone's eye color at all, let alone descriptions referencing specific precious or semiprecious stones.

Which is best visualized as a vicious, lazy, profoundly ignorant, perpetually hungry organism craving the warm god-flesh of the anointed. Personally I like to imagine something the size of a baby hippo, the color of a week-old boiled potato, that lives by itself, in the dark, in a double-wide on the outskirts of Topeka. It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections."

When I grew up I ate all the ponies and owned an ice cream.

That's right! I can relive my childhood vicariously through my future children! I'll buy them the most majestic ice cream in the world, and start a delicious pony ranch!

I always said when I was little I was going to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies and just eat the whole bowl of cookie dough without baking it. Then they came out with those magical premade logs of cookie dough in the refrigerator section..

I remember, shortly after I first started earning my own money, learning that you could actually buy shit like cookie dough and icing. It felt like a much bigger revelation at the time than it really was.

I was still a kid when they started coming out with jars of icing. I remember putting it on poptarts.

I was thoroughly disappointed when I realized pre-made cookies and buns weren't as good as my mom's.

Also, I had an aversion to cookies in general for a very long time, since I thought cookies and crackers were the same things. So when I was offered B&J:s cookie-dough icecream, I was kind of disgusted.

CrC, that is thoroughly offensive. I'm glad you since learned to look beyond your upbringing.

I'm intensely amused.

What the Hell would cracker-dough even be like? I'm kind of curious now.

I think it's just like bread dough pretty much, but I'm not sure. I found this recipe, but I don't know enough about cooking to say what the dough's like for sure just going from that. I think that's pretty much just slightly-sweetened and unleavened bread dough?
