    Mother came to visit and bought me a batch of like 14 cookies from a boutique shop but unbeknownst to her Im restricting my sugar intake. I dont really know what to do with them

    Im thinking of taking them to my seminar tomorrow at uni (of about 12 people ) and share them there but will this look weird? Randomly bringing in confectionery to share?

    I think that's a nice idea, my seminar tutor brought in biscuits for us on the last day of term before Christmas, I don't think it's weird but I guess it depends on how well you know them

    They'd love you for it. Do that or give it to some homeless person.

    Its like a discussion seminar so I know them sort of well, its not like we listen to a presentation and dont know each others names or anything

    Do you think they might go stale by the morning?

    I'd assume they would be fine if you kept them covered and didn't leave them out?

    If this is your only dilemma in life I'd say things were going pretty good for you.

    Give them away or, cut the into quarters and put them in the freezer in a plastic bag. Every time you feel snackish have one.
