A box of Girl Scout Cookies

It's Girl Scout Cookie season.

At least, Girl Scouts are selling cookies around here.

And that's a problem.

You see, I like Girl Scout Cookies. A lot.

And so does The Wife. A lot.

And we know our weaknesses, and how to combat them.

We decided, when they started selling Girl Scout Cookies this year, that we'd buy just one box.

And, we did.

When I picked The Wife up from work one day this past week, she had a package of Girl Scout Cookies ... Lemon Chalet Cremes ... in her hand.

The person at work that she bought the cookies from had delivered them.

So, I got an odd look when, a couple of days later, when I picked her up from work, there were more cookies in the car.

Remember, we had agreed to buy a box of cookies.

Well, she had a package of cookies.

And I had eleven packages of cookies.

You see, they come twelve packages to a box.

And I can do math almost as well as I can eat Girl Scout Cookies.


  1. yummy... glad I'm not working outside of the home right now. I'd be buying a 'box' of girl scout cookies as well.

  2. I am a SUCKER for those Caramel deLites (used to be known as Samoans)....

  3. We were just discussing at our office the other day that no one had been approached for cookies this year. I remember selling them when I was a Girl Scout. We'd buy lots of packages and freeze them to have throughout the year. Man, I really miss those Samoans. :(

  4. vw bug: Do you want me to send you a box? I'd hate for you to miss out.

    Macker: The Wife absolutely LOVES those. If fact, she bought a secret pack of those that she thought I didn't know about.

    Lisa: Freeze them? Wow. I thought they all had to be eaten in the first week. I'll know better next year.
