Girl Scout Cookies
The next time sweet faced little girls come up the walk, dressed in their Brownie Scout uniforms and carrying a clip board I am not going to open the door for them. I am going to hide. I know they will be selling Girl Scout cookies.
I order the cookies, mostly chocolate mint, maybe some Trefoils for old times sake and later will eat them all. Like today. The empty boxes are found on the kitchen table. Jim looks at me - - his face showing how he resents my beating him to them. "You mean they are all gone?"
It is a long standing pre-Spring ritual in our house.
Just asking - is there anything better tasting than Girl Scout chocolate mint cookies and cold milk?
In the day - of the dark ages - when I sold Girl Scout cookies - safely walking my neighborhood blocks - there was only one choice - the classic short bread Trefoils. Oh, yum!!! In those days we carried filled boxes of cookies with us. I sold box after box - being careful to hold back several boxes which I would sell to my grandmother - whose house was conveniently on my cookie route. Hers would be the last stop and we would share a snack - Trefoils and milk.
Those cookies are not safe - they are loaded with a powerful substance - - memories. Try and resist them.
