A cookie, a dog and a face cream
Everone who knows me knows that I am a PF fanatic. Every pantry is always well-stocked with a full supply, in case of blizzards and other PF supply-preventing natural disasters. There is no other cookie, truly.
I am also similarly obsessed with Creme de la Mer, the famous skin care cream invented by a NASA scientist to treat and heal jet-oil burns suffered by astronauts. This incredible treatment cream lives up to its lauded name, and I use it for much the same purposes: wounds, scars and the like.
That's why, when my beloved Montague Myles Lake had to have a small "procedure" (the removal of a suspicious looking mole on his otherwise perfect chest...yes, it was nothing), I naturally turned to my old standby to minimize his tiny little scar.
He has developed quite a liking to the treatment, looking at it as an opportunity for a little bed-hockey with Mommy.
Am I being too...silly? Is it over-indulgence to tend to his wound with one of the most luxurious skin creams on the market?
I don't think so.
Time for a cookie, Montague.
With cookies and cream,
- Anne Lake
