dodging the girlscouts
Sunday, February 21, 2010
Went shopping yesterday- you just can't have too much clean kitty litter in this household. Well, well, well. Here I am doing SUCH a good job not eating the goodies and there they were. I was so focused on getting in and out I didn't see the little pigtails, their spirited group comraderie, the adult chaperones setting up tables, the matching outfits, until we were right on them. What to do??? Nowhere to hide- they see me.
Is it rude to avert your eyes from those cute little girl scouts? They just want to support their cause. They really don't mean me harm. But their cookies do.
First year that I have not bought at least one box. Girl scouts of the world, my apologies. I'll buy just about anything else- but I can't even touch a box. No, I can't freeze it or give it to a neighbor. You see, I can't even have it in my car. It won't make it home. One will turn in to another, and then another, and I'll be full and still won't stop. I'll eat until I make myself sick....and then eat more.
I darted in and out of the store and have decided if one of the dears actually gets me I'll kindly make a donation to their cause but this woman is "off the cookies" !
Have a beautiful sunday.
