Fiction Outtake: Baking Cookies (The Early Years)

Mitchell stopped at the top of the steps and sniffed, then inhaled as deeply -- and as quietly -- as he could. "Something smells," he said, wrinkling his nose and pretending the reek was bad. He even waved his hand in front of his face as he leaned forward so he could see Amy and Beth on the family room couch -- and so they could see him.

"That's why you're supposed to say excuse me when you fart, Pipsqueak!"

"Oh. Sorry," Mitchell said and shut his bedroom door behind him. He didn't have to hear Amy's laugh to know it was following him. She thought she was so funny.

"When's the cookie raid?" Trevor asked.

"Give it an hour," Mitchell said and reached for his guitar. "Don't want to strike too soon or they'll just eat what's left of the dough again and we won't get shit."

"We'll get to lick the bowl."

"Not last time, we didn't. Trust me, Trev. We lay low, we get the goods."

Trevor stood up and was out of the room before Mitchell could stop him.

"Bring me three!" Mitchell called after him, chuckling. He'd gotten them all that time.

Mmmm... cookies. Hey Trev, grab one for me too, would ya?
i love the way you have brought life into every aspect of these characters... i have dated a huge number of guys in bands... and none of them seemed to have a life besides practice playing out doing dope and screwing... it is refreshing to know that at least in the blog sphere musicians can be well rounded....
The boys are reminding me... it's been a long time since I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies! :)
It's me again! I tagged you for a book meme. :) It's a fun one!
I like these kids and the unsympathetic way you bring them to life for the reader.
Hahaah... love this! And now, as is pretty much always the case with me, I'm hungry for cookies. :-)
I want a cookie!

Here in India, most band groups work very hard and ARE well rounded!

There os one in Rock band, Euphoria in Delhi where the lead singer is a practising doctor. Others are professionally qualified too.

I got here from Michele today!
Got here again from Michele! I am currently listening to old numbers by Deep Purple!
i don't want cookies... i want Trevor. Need. Now. Right Now.

Sorry I've been MIA

I'm craving cookies now!
