A Facebook friend tells me Whitman, Massachusetts celebrates the stoke of midnight and the beginning of the new year by dropping a cookie. Could it be a chocolate chip Toll House cookie from the legendary Toll House Restaurant that burned down some years ago. Good choice for an icon. Much better than the giant scissors sign that stood by Safler’s Fabric Store or the stucco giant of King’s Castle Land that fell over into a car dealer’s lot. Both Safler’s and King’s Castle Land are gone, now. How can I get back on track and once again become Captain of My Apartment? Well, the Wendy’s chili lid that is on the living room floor could go in the trash and the Christmas card beside it could go with the other cards.
