Somethings belong together.
Try imagining: James Bond without his Miss Moneypenny; tea without milk; television without a remote control; and, the biggest unimaginable~~ biscuits without dunking!
Pardon my digression. It is my understanding that the original biscuit was hard tack that needed to be dunked to be edible. Today’s English biscuit has evolved to include the sweet, double biscuit with a creamy filling. Now that sounds like an American cookie!
Now, if you will, imagine the unimaginable ~~In households across America, some children are being deprived of dunking their cookies biscuits in their milk. How do I know this? I experienced it first hand while on vacation with another couple, their two sons and our only.
After a full day with three boys, the moms needed a rest. So snacks it was. I poured the milk and gave the boys each a plate of Oreos (a sweet double chocolate cookie with a creamy middle). Our son, immediately dunked one into the milk. What followed can only be described as pandemonium. Our darling was slurping his soggy Oreo and hers were listening to mommy explain in an increasingly loud and authoritarian voice. “We don’t dunk in this house!”
It was a delicious moment of, dare I break the American rule and speak the unspeakable, class differences among the biscuit set?
Of course, we were never invited to vacation with them again and to this day, our darling adult son, still dunks his Oreos in milk and slurps away!
