What’s this about cookies?  My wife is a Foreign Service Officer (FSO) in the US Department of State.  FSO’s used to be called “cookie pushers”.  Not the most complimentary of nicknames, but it struck me as funny.  And now that I’m a FSO spouse, where are the cookies?  Well, my employment prospects overseas may not be all that great, so I’ll probably have a lot of free time to bake my own.
