The Tribune Tower Walgreens cookie run adventure (tweeted live)

Here’s a funny story that happened to me yesterday. I live tweeted a cookie run to Walgreens.

Making a cookie run to the walgreens.

Chips Ahoy cookies are 4 boxes for $5. #walgreens #deal

Okay, so I bought FOUR boxes of cookies. I’ll walk up the 14 flights of stairs at Tribune Tower to make up for it.

Security guard at Tribune Tower denies cookie offer. Oh well. More for the peeps on 14. Now it’s stair climbing time!

At floor 7. This is much harder than I thought. Half way there!

Floor 14, I’m so happy to see you! +huffing and puffing+

Can you beat 3 minutes 14 seconds for 14 flights of stairs? It’s very possible. I wasn’t going fast at all.

In my desperation for water, I sit down at my desk with a full bottle and spill it all over! Classic! Thankfully none on my laptop.

Water is cleaned up. 14 flights of stairs are climbed. I finally sit down to enjoy some tasty cookie goodness! Mmmmm mmmmm

Guess what? The cookies are STALE. Shudda known. Typically when Walgreens has food on mega-sale, there tends to be something wrong.

Outstanding! Did you stop on 7 to Tweet? And you still did 14 flights in 3 minutes and 14 seconds? I’m impressed! I’ve never timed how long it takes me to get up the 12 flights of stairs to my apartment, but I know it’s not under 4 minutes!

By the way, I would suggest that you (and everyone) check the expiry date on products, especially baked goods. I always check the date on bread and cookies and the like … which is particularly important when there is an offer like “Buy 1 Get 1 Free” or better

That’s quite a secret! I wonder if I can Twitter a dish I’m making the same way ;O)
