Pink Cookie

My wife is pregnant and due to deliver at the beginning of November.

She had a dream last May, where a very famous person, who shall remain unnamed here, approached her and gave her a cookie with pink frosting on it.

We did not know what to make of this dream at the time, although we kinda figured that the baby would be a girl (yes this is deeply and disturbingly sexist on our part,) but also that the giving of the pink cookie was a sign of something to come.

When the Sixth War took place this last July-August, We all watched as Izrael pummelled Lebanon with infinite amounts of technology and death, without achieving anything but destruction of civilian lives, and getting a good old fashioned whoopin by the Lebanese.

we decided to name the baby Waad وعد, which means Promise.



My wife sort of remembers that the cookie in her dream might have been similar to cookies number three and four above, the ones with sprinkles. you can kinda connect the sprinkles, like dots.

Just something to remember when you're tucking her in bed nshalla.
