I don't know if any of you do Foursquare, the ubiquitious iPhone app that demands that one "check in" wherever one goes, thereby gaining points, sometimes "goodies" and becoming "Mayor" of certain establishments. Well, I do. The way I do everything else, obsessively.
So I live in this very small town of Sonoma, and there are certain places that I go regularly. One of these places is the Basque Boulangerie. I'm there almost every morning for my caffeine fix before I start my writing day. I am "The Mayor" of the Basque, or at least I was until just two days ago. That's when my pal, let's call him "Chip," decided to take it away from me.

So I asked this "friend" of mine what I had to do to get my title back. Turns out the reason he was paying all those "extra" visits to the bakery was an oatmeal raisin cookie fix. It also turns out that this paragon can also be bought. He told me oatmeal raisin cookies would be the price of getting back my mayorship.
|Okay, Dude, you're on. Mr. X on the right wishing he had cookies too.|
It's absolutely Golden as far as Bribery is concerned. If there is someone who needs to be bought off, this is the cookie that will do it!
