I purposely did not buy Girl Scout cookies. We missed the deadline with The Girl because she switched schools and troupes in the middle of cookie time. Dodged a diet bullet there. I can swallow SLEEVES of thin mints in one breath and that would not go a long way toward my waistline or my quest to eat whole and healthy.
Imagine my surprise today when this lovely mom from school tapped on my car window with not one, but two boxes of thin mints with a cute little heart shaped sticky note bearing my name.
“Did you order these.” She inquired. I imagine because she suspected something amiss.
I saw the slow smirk in the rear view mirror before I even had a chance to respond.
“I did not. But it seems someone in this car might have.”
And so there you have it. My kid had her friend write an order for two boxes of thin mints.
There is so much wrong with this situation I don’t even know where to begin.
Maybe a cookie will help me think.
