"We all have our own personal currency; things that we trade in every type of relationship to satisfy our own wants, needs and to fulfill us emotionally. For some people its money or lavish gifts. For others, it is less tangible things like compliments, affection or even sex. For me, it is baked goods. I use them to express love, obtain praise and even admittedly as a tool of manipulation. (After all, it is hard to say no to a girl holding a fresh batch of cookies.) It isn’t easy reaching your goals sometimes. I just try to do it with a little sugar, flour and butter in hand."
