Yeah, It's That Time Again

We interrupt your regularly scheduled diet of vegetables for . . . Girl Scout cookies!

Yikes!  Isn't it amazing that we will pay $4.00 for a small box of cookies?  But nothing tastes quite like these cookies.  Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles, Do Si Dos, Samoas - ahhh.  

In our council this year is a little different.  Instead of taking orders in advance, we actually have the cookies on hand for cash and carry.  The trick is that we have to order them in advance and we're basically committed to whatever we order.  Good thing these cookies sell themselves.  Even so, we may be eating them (either the cost or the actual cookies).

I think it's funny to see how people react at Girl Scout cookie time.  I have a co-worker who claims these are like "crack".  She hides them from her kids so she can eat a box after they go to bed.  Another friend, looking for anyone selling cookies, bought a whole case of Thin Mints.  Closer to home, I keep finding $4.00 sitting next to the cases of cookies from my 12 year old son who is munching on Tagalongs.

So, the healthy vegetable thing is a little sidetracked, at least until we can get rid of the cookies.  (Sorry, healthy family members!)
