My dream volunteer job is this: I eat cookies and then, when I’m done, people congratulate me for it.
Complete fantasy? Not for a handful of MilSpouses at Fort Irwin, it’s not. They skipped the more mundane jobs for a spot breaking the world record for largest dessert party.
Um, yes, I would like to volunteer for that, thank you.
A group of about a dozen spouses of National Training Center and Fort Irwin Soldiers participated in the Barstow Tanger Outlet Center's attempt to break the world record for largest dessert party May 12. Participants at each of the 34 Tanger locations around the country, as well as at Tanger's corporate office and at the New York Stock Exchange, ate dessert at the same time in an effort to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records. With more than 20,000 people turning out for the nationwide party, including 265 at the Barstow location, they succeeded.First thing on my to-do list for next week: find a way to volunteer to eat cookies.
(My husband just chimed in that I should “be a Cookie Monster.” … helpful).
