We really need a legit cookie jar here at the Prib crib.
Something cute. Something durable. Not a Dr. Who Tardis that makes a very loud whirring sound every time you open it.
Because right now, people, that’s all we have right now.
Mr. Pribs likes Dr. Who (the show). And a couple of Christmases ago he received a Dr. Who Tardis cookie jar (box?). I don’t know if he asked for it. I didn’t even know what Dr. Who was…and even now that I do, I’m not the biggest fan. But nonetheless, I didn’t mind the tardis cookie jar because we were in college, we weren’t living together, so I didn’t have to encounter it on a daily basis. Therefore, it was totally cool.
Things are different now.
This Dr. Who cookie jar never gets used anymore. It doesn’t match our kitchen (blue doesn’t jive with my very meticulously planned black and red themed kitchen, sorry). And when I do encounter it, somehow the whirring sound finds a way to go off and scare me.
Like today, when making these cookies. I was in my own little world, throwing things together, when I had to go into a cabinet – the same cabinet where the Dr Who Tardis was jammed into and is lying on it’s side. I was on a mission to find more sugar. I grabbed the bag and slammed the cabinet door shut and all of a sudden the whirring sound went off. And for a second, I didn’t know what the sound was and I practically threw the sugar on the floor out of surprise.
But then I remembered. I opened the cabinet again, stared up at that little blue box and muttered to myself “Why do we have that thing?”.

That is, if we still have the tardis.
