I have a confession. I am a sucker for Girl Scout cookies. I don't want my neighborhood Girl Scouts to know what an easy mark I am so I limit my purchasing with them to five boxes each. There are three of them who currently get my business. But there are ways to satisfy my cravings and I have discovered them all. There are usually one or two co-workers who have a daughter in Scouts. Those are worth five boxes each. Grocery stores are my place though. The kids sitting out at tables with their parents with boxes of cookies stacked high are my greatest weakness. “Oh, are you selling cookies? Well, look I just happen to have an extra $50 with me and would be happy to take all those Samoas off your hands.”
See, the cookies have to be Samoas. Sometimes, if they can be found I will have the two boxes that are not in the big six. Did you know there are 8 and not 6? Yep. Not in every area though.
As much as I love them though, I don't think I would fight over them. Sure, a minor tussle once broke out when someone thought they had claim to the last box of Samoas in the freezer, but I let my dad have them. Free rent after all.
In Florida this week, two female roommates got into a fight when one of them accused the other of pilfering her thin mints. Really? Thin mints are popular, but not with me. There was beating with hands and fists and one of the women who weighs 400 pounds allegedly jumped on the other. Oh, there was also some scissor threatening. I have the solution. Make sure you have lots of boxes.
I have to ask. What are your favorite kind?
