    Unhappy Help: the meaning of “ ccookie”

    Looking for some explanations of the usage of cookie from native speakers. Does it use in any other situation other than eating cookie? Thank you!

    I know there is a computer term cookie that has something do do with your computer leaving information on websites that you visit.

    There is an American idiom tossing your cookies which is a euphamism for vomiting. We also say "That's the way the cookie crumbles" to mean "sometimes you have bad luck." A person can be a tough cookie if he's really tough.
