Growing up poor, there were many things that I couldn’t afford or didn’t have access to. Simple pleasures like a bag of chips or a box of cookies seemed out of reach, and I often had to make do with whatever we had in the pantry.
But as I’ve gotten older and started to make a decent living as a writer, I’ve been able to indulge in some of those small luxuries that I missed out on as a kid. And today, as I sit down to write this blog post, I am doing so with a package of Oreos by my side – because today is Oreo Day!
That’s right, the beloved cookie has its own day of celebration, and I couldn’t be more excited to join in the festivities. Whether I’m twisting, licking, and dunking them in milk or getting creative with recipes like Oreo balls or no-bake cheesecakes, there’s no wrong way to enjoy an Oreo.
So here’s to Oreo Day, and all the simple pleasures that make life a little sweeter. Whether it’s a cookie or something else, I hope you find a way to indulge in something that brings you joy today.
