After she fell down and screamed about the wolf, I couldn’t really think about saving the chocolate chip cookies from burning. The oven just consumed them like a sacrificial doe on the altar of desserts.
            So we stopped and listened to the wolf without eating our sweets and the wolf licked its jowls and made us forget our silly worries.
