Remember that time I talked about the neighborhood council meeting cookies? There’s something amazing about them. They’re always the best at Comstock Neighborhood Council meetings. Maybe it’s the memories of my childhood finally catching up to me, or maybe it’s the perfect balance of high fructose corn syrup.
They’re a watering hole for neighborhood guests. Today’s agenda brought an informal mayoral candidate forum. Three candidates have announced their candidacy. Current Mayor Mary Verner, former McMorris Rodgers deputy chief, David Condon and then Christopher Fenton… some dude. Fenton failed to show, but Verner and Condon arrived to the meeting to sit through a hour of discussion over trees, bus routes and neighbors4neighborhoods.
Political commentary is not my cup of tea. I look for the more subtle things in life that the normal person might not notice. Example: David Condon chose a white chocolate chunk with macadenia nut cookie for his cookie pleasure at the beginning of the meeting. Those are my favorite. Mayor Verner did not take a cookie.
It wasn’t until the end of the meeting that observation came in handy. Council chair, Sally Fullmer told everyone to have a great evening and have a cookie. Condon chimed in to say, “Yes, and try the chocolate chip! They’re great.”
…But he didn’t have a chocolate chip cookie…
