Girl Scout Cookies are Like Crack

It's sad when you order Girl Scout cookies together for the first time, and you only order one box of Samoas, because, even though they're your favorite you should only really eat one box, or else you'll really be a fat ass, and he says he doesn't like them, that he likes Trefoils, Thin Mints, and Tagalongs.

And then one day he comes out of the kitchen with the box of Samoas in his hand and asks, "Hey, honey, do you want to split the last of these with me?"

You look up surprised becasue the last you had seen, more than 2/3 of the box was still there.

But now. Now there are only 2.

hey, at least you can get Samoas in St. Louis. I have to buy these horrible "Carmel Delights" ... grrr!

Summer said...

Ohhh! Samoas! I haven't had them in so long. Really, they are from the Devil...sent here on earth to make me look fat for the swimsuit season. That said, I would still eat a box. By myself.

Oh, yeah, and what went up on the office sign today?

My husband bought five boxes, and only sent me ONE!

I ate my box on in my car alone on the way home just to avoid this exact situation with my husband. Much like Christmas and birthdays: girl scout cookie season comes but once a year!

Thin Mints straight from the freezer? Oh yeah.

Happy B Day from Toledo.

We're an hour ahead of you so if you were here now, it would already be your B Day.

You could start your celebration by eating the one box of Samoa's that I bought. And hid. Which is why they have not been eaten.

Yet.

But your 25th IS an excellent reason to break them out. Wish you were here to have them with a glass of dry French champagne. A votre sante, Marcia!

Happy Birthday girl! Tell me when your present arrives! (: I'm excited for you to get it.

Oh. That's so sad. I got three boxes this year, only because my boss's kid was selling them, and I felt obligated. And even then, did I get my favorite (Thin Mints)? No, because someone lost a pallet full of them, thus robbing us of 181 cases of Thin Mints.

I love Girl Scout cookie season. Happy birthday.

Another Happy Birthday from Toledo! Okay, it's actually Temperance, MI but close enough...

Just back from the dentist, where I got some free stuff. Yes, the usual toothbrush and floss. And Girl Scout cookies. Marcia, had I known your situation I would have picked Samoas for you. Sadly I picked Thin Mints. Happy Birthday!!!

Two lessons we can learn from this:

1. Never trust your man with any kind of sweets/junk food.

2. Girl Scout cookies are the very vehicle in which the Scouts will one day control the world.

You need to use the missing samoas as leverage for a REALLY good birthday present from the boy:) I hope you enjoy your day!

You should know better than that. Anyone who says they don't like Samoas is obviously lying.

Happy B-day! (I had a breakdown on my 25th).

I buy 3 boxes of Samoas every year: 2 for everyone else to eat from & 1 just for myself. I put it in the freezer & I've still got 3 cookies in the box from LAST FEB (2005)!
