Desperate Cry for Help 046

So I meet her in the hallway and she tells me that she's left her boyfriend and is now homeless and has no idea where she will live, and then she cheerfully offers me a maple cookie.

I have no idea what the hell to do. If I don't take the cookie, then maybe that would be perceived as rejection and for all I know she's just actually been rejected by her lover and NOW I will be cast as yet another bastard in the long list of bastards of her life.

But if I do take the cookie, then maybe I'll be seen as a glutton and an insensitive jerk.

I am somewhat hungry

I eat the cookie.

There is darkness.

I offer to help her look for an apartment

But she is already gone

Alone I stand there.

Then I take the whole box of cookies and run like hell.
