Eating cookie dough

As I become older, I find that it useful to more precisely describe things so as to get exactly what I want. The key, I think, is to add a "y" to the end of a word to turn it into a useful descriptor. For example, I wanted a sword the other day. The Chef was thinking about pirates. I quickly corrected her, and told her I wanted something "ninja-y." See how useful that is?

I use this technique a lot when requesting food. The number one word I use in my requests is "dessert-y." I am happy to have something that isn't actually dessert, as long as it is "dessert-y." Candidates include cookie dough, frosting off of other people's cookies/cupcakes, and frozen fruit.
