The other day I nearly had a heart attack. Seriously.
So what caused my heart to nearly stop?
This article: Girl Scouts Cut Back on Cookies.
My tummy turned and growled in protest. My eyes started to tear up as I began nibbling my nails (which, disappointingly, taste nothing like Girl Scout cookies). My chest tightened, and
underarm sweat soaked my shirt glisten beaded on my forehead.
Pete, I cried, We’ll be together soon!
Then I read the article. Phew! They’re getting rid of Thank You Berry Munch cookies. Dodged that bullet.
I’ve never even heard of those, but I already know why they failed: The majority of the American public does not appreciate the pun.
There are certain food holidays that I look forward to all year.
- Candy Corn season
- Cadbury Creme Eggs season (I bought my first egg a week or two ago.)
- Girl Scout cookie season.
Girl Scout cookie season. Also known as Samoas and Tagalong overload season. While the rest of you crazies stock pile Thin Mints, I buy armloads of Samoas and Tagalongs.
Why? Because they’re better than Thin Mints.
That’s right. I said it.
Commence throwing things now.
