Fw: Italian Cookies

Something a coworker sent me. Enjoy!


(For all the Italians out there, or those who are
lucky enough to be married to an Italian, or even
to be friends of Italians!)

An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While
suffering the agonies of impending death, he
suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite Italian
anisette sprinkle cookies wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself
from the bed.Leaning against the wall, he slowly
made his way out of the bedroom, and with even
greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands,
he crawled downstairs. With labored breath, he leaned
against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen.

Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought
himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon
waxed paper on the kitchen table were literally
hundreds of his favorite anisette sprinkled cookies.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love
from his devoted Italian wife of sixty years, seeing
to it that he left this world a happy man?

Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself
towards the table, landing on his knees in a
crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the
wondrous taste of the cookie was already in his mouth,
seemingly bringing him back to life. The aged and
withered hand trembled on its way to a cookie at the
edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked with
a spatula by his wife......
