Heath Bits Peanut Butter Cookies

I am normally not a klutz. However, yesterday was a big exception. Yesterday, I had to drive up north to meet with this lady. I felt a little tired but it was no big deal. Well, the lady invited me into her office to talk. I put my stuff down on the floor except for my jacket. The lady said something to me as I took a step backwards accidentally onto my jacket. I lost my balance and caught myself as I stepped back with my other foot meanwhile knocking her chair over. I then turned which made my jacket whip out and hit the lady's plant. The plant went flying to the floor. Impressively, I didn't harm the chair or the plant. I will truly say a comedian could not have done my timing any better. I did apologize and I was wide awake for the rest of the day. There is nothing better to wake a person up then make wreckage in an office. If you are feeling a little tired today, I recommend some caffeine or maybe one of these cookies. It is safer.
