In December I posted about how my friend Jeff is pretty much a jerk. He'd sent an email to a few of his friends praising "Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe Joe's" cookies. Of course, Jeff knows that Trader Joe's stores aren't easy to find in Singapore and Jeff did his best to rub it in.
Last night Jeff redeemed himself in a big way. When I opened my mailbox after work, there was a package with my name on it. (I never get packages. They're always addressed to Melissa or Jack.) You should have seen the smile on my face when I opened it to find a red box of cookies! (A box that cost $5 to buy and $13 dollars to mail.) If only he could mail me the $2 wine Trader Joe's sells. A $6 bottle in the US costs $25 in Singapore.
I have to say that Jeff was right. They were pretty darn good.
