It's Cookie Time

On the way to work this morning, I heard a song to the tune of Toni Basil's Mickey. Fast forward to the part in your head that goes,

Oh Mickey, what a pity you don´t understand
You take me by the heart when you take me by the hand

And this is what I heard on the radio:

Oh Girl Scout Cookies, making me expand
Walking around all day with a Thin Mint in my hand.

It's officially started!!

I then walked into the door where the receptionist was eating Shortbread Girl Scout Cookies. I knew what that meant. The three boxes I ordered from someone at work out of pure kindness *wink* would be waiting for me upstairs in my office. I contemplated climbing the stairs a couple of times to prepare for what would soon be my breakfast!

I am going to try and pawn 2 of the 3 boxes (I'm not sick!) off on others in the office, as I have a few more boxes coming to me from Arizona from Sis #2 (age 7). I couldn't turn her down and neither could some others that she conned into buying to reach her goal of 160 to win a bear.

And to end my cookie filled day, while driving home from work, I pass an elementary school with many Girl Scouts on the corner selling more cookies. (Hi mom, I'm going to be late coming home from school because I have to sell cookies on the corner! Hmmm.....) And then last, I go into Publix and am ambushed by more cookie selling machines. I paid them $5 to keep the cookies from going to my ass! They were very excited!

So the season has officially started!! I think it's a scam from the gyms and weight loss centers to keep their membership going after everyone has failed their New Years Resolution!
