Damn You, Thin Mints. And Your Tagalong Counterparts.


First off, I can't believe I am writing a second post about cookies. You may as well paint me blue and call me the Cookie Monster. (Lame, I know. Laugh anyway). But I am. Another post about cookies.

I should be writing to you from a diabetic Thin Mint-induced coma, although by now I believe my pancreas has kicked in full-swing and is releasing buffalo amounts of insulin to combat my sugar overdose. It's that time of year again.

Girl Scout cookies.

Approximately seven cookies for twenty dollars. Okay, fine. That's not true. It's more like fifteen cookies for four dollars. But you catch my drift. Overpriced wafers of scrum-diddly-umtious goodness. All for me. With a side of, "Aww, I just helped some little girl add another badge to that hideous sash (or vest) she's forced to wear to all those meetings!" Been there. Done that.

No, a little girl with puppy dog eyes did not come a' knockin on my door to sell her wares, but rather, one of the Nurse Practitioners that I work with piled fifty-five boxes sky high in her office which is literally thirty steps from the infusion bay where I work. Cruel and unusual punishment.

I could practically smell the Tagalong's peanut buttery centers. I could hear the Thin Mints calling my name. The Samoas. Oh, the Samoas! Every second of every day.

From the foot traffic that this particular NP's office had seen, one would think she was selling cocaine.

Hubs doesn't care much for Girl Scout cookies. But I thought he might appreciate an extra box of Tagalongs. And a box of Thin Mints. Oh. And a box of Samoas, too. Unfortunately for him though, the Tagalongs barely survived the car ride home. Le sigh.

Hopefully he doesn't check the serving size portion on the back of the box. Teehee :)

  8. I absolutely ordered 6 boxes today from a lady in our office. Shit.

    I did get two boxes for the husby. The other four, well, I may have purposefully picked flavors he hates so that I can have them all to myself :)

  11. Oh, girl scout cookies, how I love thee. Well, really, I have no choice in the matter, as I was raised in the ULTIMATE Girl Scout cookie household. While scouts order the cookies and pick them up from their troop leaders, my family (well, my mom in particular) was the place troop leaders came to get the cookies. That means every year we would have a semi-truck pull up to our house and unload thousands of cases of GS cookies into our garage...multiple times.

    Meaning I know way too much about GS cookies and the baker your local council uses (which decides whether you know the cookies as Peanut Butter Patties/Caramel Delites or Tagolongs/Samoas).

    Woah, way too long of a comment. Damn the cookies ;)

    I can't wait to get my hand on those thin mints!

    BTW - I was seeking out my cookies, yes I tracked down a girl scout to buy them from - new low in the cookie addiction!

  15. My entire life, we lived across the street from our local girl scout house. They never, not once, came to our home to sell cookies. To bad too. We would have helped them break the record.
