Chris gave me one of these Hunter × Hunter cookies at work. I think one of the Japanese clients brought them to our office as a gift. I never heard of Hunter × Hunter, but it’s some anime/manga series.
For some reason, I was expected it to be like a Thin Mint. But it turned out to be a small hard chocolate chip cookie. Kind of like the kind you used to get from McDonald’s in a rectangular box back in the day. I don’t think they still sell those anymore. They now have soft-baked cookies.
I remember the last time I got a box of those McDonald’s Chocolate Chip cookies was when I was a kid on a field trip to Washington DC. My best friend John, growing up through Elementary School, ate them when I was asleep. I made him walk up and down the hallway saying “I’m an idiot!” over and over as punishment. We fell out of friendship in the years after. I’m not sure why. We were best friends for years. The only reason I can think of is the cookie incident. But I’m sure we just grew apart like most people do. I recently found out he’s a NY Times bestselling author.
