"Lookie, Lookie, Here Comes Cookie Now"

I found it yesterday. I finally found it.

I was walking into the Jewel (the grocery store, not the singer), and there it was - - what so many of us search for, but so few of us find.

A Girl Scout. Selling actual boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!

And she had SEVERAL boxes of Thin Mints available for purchase!!!

Don't judge. Thin Mints (the Girl Scouts' obviously-named diet cookies) are exciting stuff for me. So exciting that I think I scared my neighborhood Girl Scout when, instead of "Hello," I started the conversation with a bombastic, "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?"

Luckily, she was with her mother and her mother laughed and quickly positioned boxes of Thin Mints between the crazy, bald, gay man and her child.

I bought four boxes. And the second I got home, they went into my freezer. Right beside the vodka and the poppers.

My mama raised me right.


Hm, What? said...


I never really understood the craze about Girl Scout Cookies, but that's only because I'm not a fan of Chocolate Mint. They look delicioso though!

that's why they're called THIN mints! because they're good for you! (mmm, vodka and thin mints, nothing wrong with that...)

Here's my favourite trick with Thin Mints: Nibble two small holes on opposite sides of the cookie, just deep enough to reach the cookie. Then hold the cookie vertically in a cup of cold milk until the bubble stop, then pop it into your mouth.

LOL. This seems like something I would do. Actually I would probly hiss at the carbs.

The guy who works in my building's garage has a daughter who was selling these. He unfolded the order sheet right by the valet desk and just watched as everyone in the building fell over themselves to get the the sign up sheet like he was giving away free crack.

I ordered three boxes.

They lasted one day.

That guy in my garage? Father of the year!!!

My coworker has a daughter in the Girl Scouts. Needless to say, I got 4 boxes.

I love me some Girl Scout cookies ! I'm a freak for peanut butter patties. I can never resist a girl scout selling cookies or a group selling Krispy Kremes.

I will make sure to let you know when my niece starts selling them next year. I do the same thing with my thin mints they are awesome right out of the freezer. mmmmm
