Girl Scout Cookies...yay.

Tuesday, March 03, 2015

So it's that time again- Girl Scout Cookie time! When all the darling angels (and I work at an elementary school- there are many, many...angels emoticon ) come to bring pre-packaged deliciousness for only $4 a box!!

Anyone notice they used to be $3, and used to be bigger?? I digress...

I get the big, sad-eyed "It's only $4....don't you want just one?" emoticon

or the "Sally told me you bought TWO boxes from her..." emoticon


I rubbed my belly when one of them asked, telling her "Child, this tummy was made on girl scout cookies". Her mom laughed (a little TOO loud, in my opinion), but the angel said "Well, there's room for more then, right?" emoticon (yeah, guess who just sold more girl scout cookies. *glares at mom*).

There's a point to this story (check my ticker).

Total of BOXES purchased: SEVEN

Total of cookies EATEN: TWO.

That's right, b*tches! TWO.

And I'm supposed to order two more boxes tomorrow. emoticon

I may be broke, but dammit, I WILL be thinner!

And now you can all congratulate me in your responses.... emoticon

    Woo Hoo on the willpower and congrats on the weight loss!

    I avoid those girl scout cookies like the plague. Luckily, I am not exposed to them much either. emoticon

    That'll teach me.....I was in the midst of writing you, decided to look at your photo page as stupid me wanted to know what you call all those images of you that are posted lol. Now...my comment is gone....arghe. Save me from my misery what are you...lmao. You see I love these and when I see you...them I am always excited to see you and I instantly smile. HOWEVER, seeing YOU, YOU would be so awesome too. Anyway, here I go again...lol.

    WOOOOOHOOOOOOOO on your 2 pound loss this week Sparky! Clearly those girl guide cookies did not get in your way! TEMPTATION is horrid for me though. I would inhale those babies. A few years ago I started donating my money and leaving the cookies behind. I don't know how they balance the books lol...but no cookies for me. WHY? Because I eat them all! Never the less, I do get that being these little darlings teacher it is hard to say no....lol

    Wonderful to see you and I always love what you have to share....JUST NO COOKIES....lol xoxo

    That is a HUGE accomplishment! I REMEMBER Girl Scout cookies, though I have not had them in about forty years! I always thought they were VERY special and, like some of your other commenters, it was hard to control myself in the vicinity of any kind of Girl Scout cookies.

    Way to go, Sparky! Congratulations!

    YOU LOST WEIGHT!!! Woohoooooo!!!!!! Way to go, chickie! Damn all those cookies to cookie hell :) You are the strong one & I am proud of you! Me, on the other hand, I have said no to those cute little ones numerous times ... just this weekend at the mall when Amy & I walked by their "area" 3 times.... yep, a different girl ran over to us each time & I politely declined. It hurts, but had to be done! Anyway, congrats on losing weight - you're amazing!

    emoticon emoticon there you go that was my cheerleading for you lol

    Awesome work, I totally wouldn't have been able to resist. Is this girl scout cookie thing yearly? What do they raise money for charities or....scouting stuff? We don't have this in the UK (we don't even have proper trick or treating, just a couple kids roaming the streets who nobody told English people are a bunch of Grinches LOL, although it is slowly getting better to be fair)

    My daughter is a Girl Scout. We started in January with 200 boxes of cookies (almost 17 cases) in the house. We still have about 2 dozen boxes to sell, but I haven't eaten a single cookie this year! I did the same thing two years ago. Now, last year was a baaaaad year. I can't eat any, or I will eat a lot. emoticon If you can buy them, and eat only two, then my hat's off to you. emoticon

    I like the meme of the fat cat that says "I ate 2 boxes of thin mints and I don't feel any thinner!"

    Wow, talk about self control. I can't have them in the house.
