Don't make me miss lunch

So a good friend of mine just recently got a new job which just HAPPENS to be next door to my office. We keep trying to get together and go to lunch, but he’s a real estate agent (no I haven’t told him about the phone calls) and out of the office a lot so it’s been difficult trying to get together.

Here is our last text conversation:

Him: Hey, white rain (he calls me white rain and I have no idea why), let’s go to lunch today.

Me: Ok, what time?

Him: Like 2?

Me: 2:00?? I will flippin starve by then. I was thinking more like 11:00. Noon at the latest.

Him: I won’t be in the office until around 2.

Me: Well, we will have to try again another day.

Him: Dammit. What if I bring you some cookies…will you wait til two then?

Me: Hmmm….

Him: Cookies with icing in the middle?

Me: Deal.

Drops me off cookies before he leaves
Yummy. (not the actual cookies, but similar)
 ....and then at 2:00…

Him: Can’t make it, still showing a house.

Me: You son of a bitch.

Him: Don’t hate me. We’ll go tomorrow.

Me: I will have died by then of malnutrition. You can come to my funeral tomorrow.

Him: If you died today, your funeral wouldn’t be tomorrow.

Me: Yes it would. I have the right to a speedy funeral.

Him: I think that’s speedy trial.

Me: Fine, I’ll take you to court for neglecting me. You can get in trouble for that, ya know?

Him: Only if I’m your guardian.

Me: I can create fake documents that will say I’m underage and that you are my legal guardian. Then I’ll tell everyone that you don’t feed me.

Him: I’ll pay for lunch tomorrow.

Me: Ok. Have a good day and I hope you find a buyer!

So I’ve come to the conclusion that people can get away with a lot of things if they bribe me with food

I love sandwich cookies (that's what I call them). One year for my birthday my mom got me a sandwich cookie cake, pretty much all my childhood dreams coming true. And now I realize that I'm being a fatty because even though you are easily bribed by food (congrats on getting the free lunch) I latch on to only one part of your post, the cookie. I'm going to go eat a cookie now.
