Of course, eating that last cookie and NOT refilling the cookie jar is also an option. I wold not be able to leave that last cookie and would be willing to take the heat for not refilling. As I often do for not replacing the empty water jug in the fridge.

Two weeks later I'm throwing it out. In fact, I'm waiting to see what happens with the two bannanas on the counter.
The 2 bananas would get made into banana bread.

Oh no..I'm willing to bet dead presidents that those two bananas sit on the counter until the skin is black and the contents resemble banana juice.

I believe there is no cure.

My daughter also has a box of peanut butter captain crunch next to her bed. I looked inside the other day. Five. Five remaining crunch balls huddled at the bottom. Five.

No, I just have those same two bananas on my counter.

My dolly likes bananas but doesn't seem to notice them because of the cloaking device they apparently possess.
