Yummy Girl Scout Cookies

It's that time...
time to place your Girl Scout cookie order.
 

It's been a while since we've had a Girl Scout in da house.
Big C and Wishy proudly wore the green sashes back in the day.
Now their cookie days are left...
(to my) behind.


My favorite Girl Scout cookies, butt by far, are Thin Mints.
Unfortunately Thin Mints don't live up to their name,
no matter how many I eat.
oh, sugar.

Anywhoo....

The days of Girl Scouts selling cookies door-to-door have changed.
With today's technology they don't ever have to face a door,
or a face.


I first noticed the change in selling tactics with voice messages left on our home phone..
now it has progressed to
emails,
texts,
tweets,
and Facebook messages.



          My faith, however, in the ole hit the road Dale Carnegie selling style was renewed
when lying on a beach in Fort Lauderdale.
(no I wasn't on spring break).
A voice woke me from my nap saying,
" Would you be interested in some Girl Scout cookies."
And standing there, in the blinding sun...
was a little Girl Scout...
or was it God...
granting me cookie wishes?


The benefits of ole school door-to-door selling is that it teaches young girls
perseverance, tenacity, and resilience.
Should a door close...
gather your cookies and move on to the next.

No matter how the cookie crumbles...
there could be a Tagalong or Do-Si-Do friendly face right next door.
Or a Kat looking for a Thin butt Mint.


Get your Girl Scout cookies now, folks.
And don't forget the men and women overseas.
