Who doesn't like chocolate chips? Stop reading right now if you don't. For those of you who know (or knew) the love for chocolate chips, read on.
Grandma Jennie loved to bake and would often bake chocolate chip cookies, but her kids loved the chips whether or not they were surrounded by cookie dough. Thus, in the interest of keeping chips on hand for her baking needs (which were often, as she entertained frequently and generously), Grandma Jennie placed her bag of gold . . . er, chocolate chips. . . on the topmost shelf of the kitchen cabinet, just above the Westinghouse electric stove, and just to the left of the cellar door.
Try as they might, the kids could not reach those chocolate chips; that is, they could not reach them unless their cousin Herald came visiting. He, too, loved chocolate chips, and he was tall! The kids were never so happy as when Herald reached up to that top shelf and they could all share in Grandma Jennie's chocolate chips.
The funny thing is, Grandma Jennie never once scolded any of her kids for their "generosity" to their cousin Herald.
