Toll House Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I had one of those nights last night.
You know the kind. My mind was much more awake than my body was.
I tried my back, stomach, right side, left side.
I bargained with my brain.

I saw 2am come. How long I stayed awake after, I cannot be sure..but my freaking alarm goes off at 4:30am.
Kill me.
I spent my day in a bit of a fog.
Anyone who emailed me got this analogy:

Know what makes a day like that better?
Or any day that ends in "y" better?

2 ¼ Cup all purpose flour
1 Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp salt
