    Cool! The ride will alleviate the guilt of eating cookies when I shouldn't be.

    And wave hi because I live about 100 feet away from that place. The cookies in the window always look really gross though.
    You're not punk, and I'm telling everyone.

    That is a dope idea. If I lived in NYC, I would be taking advantage of that all the time, unless they are $8 cookies.

    Clearly you DON'T live in NYC. $8 cookies are commonplace in Manhattan.

    They are the best cookies in the world though. I think they bought their recipe from Neiman Marcus for $3000

    These are far from the world's best cookie (I
    make those), but for $1 (regularly $2), you
    could do worse. Both times I went in here,
    the girl at the counter was really snarky,
    despite my salt-of-the-earth Midwestern
    charm.

    You wave first. Otherwise I'll be waving at random women w/in a 100' radius.

    The first time I went there the girl at the counter told me I should bring my bike in next time. The second time I went in (with my bike) she said, "Isn't it much easier to bring your bike inside?" No snarky-ness at all.

    Maybe you caught her on off days?

    Or maybe she just doesn't like salty, earthy midwesterners. Maybe SOME people find that charming, but a shower wouldn't hurt now and again
