running carrying cookies -> I am impressed
It worked better than I thought it would! I was going to put them in a backpack but I was afraid they'd bounce too much, even with a dish towel in the container to fill up the extra space. First I tried a football hold but then they still bounced a bit, so I ended up just holding them as still as possible in one hand. It worked okay and I didn't even get that many funny looks because this is Norway so people mostly looked away as I approached.
The cookies were a hit at work, though I continue to be impressed by how many Americanisms *haven't* made it over here to this American culture-loving country. I was asked all kinds of questions about the cookies, including whether or not we had to break the chocolate into little bits ourselves.
