Christmas bakeoff 2006

KARI: *hangs up phone* GAH!

MIKE: What?

KARI: You know how I baked five different kinds of cookies, two kinds of bread, and one kind of muffin for Christmas presents?

MIKE: Yes.

KARI: You know what recipe people want?


KARI: The cookies you made.

MIKE: The chocolate ones?

KARI: You made one kind of cookie, and that’s the recipe everyone wants.


KARI: Don’t “oh” me.

MIKE: I’m sorry?

KARI: This is why I don’t cook. You always win.

MIKE: It’s not a competition.

KARI: Sure, you can say that, winner.

MIKE: I didn’t even like those cookies. They weren’t sweet enough.

KARI: That does not help!

MIKE: What are you doing?

KARI: Going online to get recipes!

MIKE: Are you baking today?

KARI: No! These are for next year!

MIKE: Next year?

KARI: I am going to beat you next year!

MIKE: We’ve been watching too much Friends. You sound like Monica.

KARI: You are going down! Look at this recipe! Sugar cookies made with cream cheese!

MIKE: Sounds tasty?

KARI: And this one! Pinwheel cookies with orange and chocolate filling! People love orange and chocolate! Like those oranges made from chocolate! They were all the rage!

MIKE: Actually, I think the evidence points to people just liking chocolate.

KARI: *gasps in horror*


KARI: You should just stop talking.

MIKE: I’m just saying. Maybe you should just use my recipe next year.

KARI: Next year, we’re having a Christmas bakeoff!

MIKE: Fine by me!

KARI: We are watching too much Friends. Because you just sounded like Chandler.

MIKE: It was intentional.

KARI: Oh. Well, you’re going down! I have all year to find recipes with which to beat you. People will be begging for my recipes!

MIKE: Bring it! I don’t need to research all year. Apparently all I need to do is find a recipe at the last minute and throw it together. It worked this year!

KARI: AH! Didn’t I say you need to stop talking?

    I totally hear you here. I am always so proud when I make something, but then Aaron hops in the kitchen and blows me away. He’s a punk. Mike, too.

    I am so conflicted right now. On one hand, I am filled with compassion for Kari and all the hard work she put into her Christmas goodies. On the other hand, I’m wondering what that recipe is…

  11. Dear Mike: Let her beat you, just like you let Alisa beat you in Halo last year at Trey’s house.

    Ross is the one who exclaimed “Fine by me!” after Rachel said they were never getting back together. Chandler never said that. And yes, I know I’m a Friends geek.
