Fan The Cookies

Once upon a time, in a quiet suburban neighborhood, lived a precocious toddler named Timmy. Timmy was known for his boundless energy and insatiable curiosity. He was always on the move, exploring every nook and cranny of his house, much to his parents’ amusement and occasional exasperation.

One sunny afternoon, Timmy’s mother decided to bake a batch of cookies. The sweet aroma wafted through the house, reaching Timmy’s keen nose. Intrigued, he toddled into the kitchen, his eyes wide with wonder at the sight of the golden-brown treats cooling on the counter.

“Mommy,” he asked, “what are you doing?”

“I’m baking cookies, sweetheart,” she replied with a smile.

Timmy’s eyes sparkled with excitement. “Can I have one?”

“Not yet,” his mother said gently. “They’re still too hot. You need to wait until they cool down.”

But waiting was not one of Timmy’s strong suits. He was a toddler after all! His little mind began to whirl with ideas on how he could speed up the cooling process.

Suddenly, he had an idea. He remembered how his dad would fan himself with a newspaper when he was hot. If it worked for dad, it should work for cookies too!

With newfound determination, Timmy toddled off to find a newspaper. After much effort and several toppled stacks of magazines later, he finally found one.

Back in the kitchen, he stood on his tiptoes and began fanning the cookies with all his might. His mother watched in amusement as her little boy huffed and puffed, his tiny face scrunched up in concentration.

Finally, after what felt like an eternity to Timmy but was really just five minutes, he stopped fanning and reached for a cookie.

“Wait!” his mother exclaimed. “They’re still hot, Timmy!”

“But Mommy,” Timmy replied, panting slightly from his exertion, “I’ve been fanning them for ages!”

His mother couldn’t help but laugh at his earnestness. “Oh, sweetheart,” she said, scooping him up in her arms. “If only cooling cookies were as easy as cooling people!”

And so, the joke in the neighborhood became: Why did Timmy fan the cookies? Because he thought they needed to cool down just like his dad!
