Question of the Day #791

When I reached for my 472nd cookie, it was hard.

"Awww," I whined. "The chocolate chip cookies are hard."

"Put some whiskey on a slice of bread and pop it in the bag. That will soften them up," Nonna said.

"Seriously? Where did you learn that?" I asked.

"A few years ago, I put some bourbonballs in the same container as stale cookies. The next day, the cookies were soft."

"Wow. You're a genius," I said.

Nonna shrugged and said, "The best inventions are accidents."

What accidental inventions have you heard of?



  1. I have no idea but I do have a taste for soft chocolate chip cookies now!

  2. Sleep with a bar of soap between your sheets to get rid of jumpy legs--it really works!

  3. None that allow me to soak my cookies in alcohol! Yum. I'm on it.

  4. Was having a really hard time keeping the base of the shower stall from looking grungy until... someone spilled Head & Shoulders shampoo and it sat there for a day. You wouldn't believe how clean that 6 inch circle was! Unfortunately, I think they must have changed the formula a bit and it doesn't work quite as well as it used to.

  5. I can't even think of any now ... I'm too amazed by Nonna's discovery and amused by how it came about! What a riot! (I'm having a craving for bourbonballs too!!!).
