so worth it

So worth it.
the humiliation of 
the stern gaze, the sharp voice doesn't
even match the illicit pleasure of gobbling 
eight cookies.
Eight!  Just purchased yesterday,
in my happy belly. 
sometimes the ask forgiveness later
is the best, my parents will never not
forgive me.
after the stern look, she gathers the broken
shards of my cookie jar, the very few crumbs
which may have escaped me
and goes back to her usual habits.
she never liked that dog cookie jar
I'm sure I did her favor.
