It's Time to Buy Girl Scout Cookies!

So...I was sitting at the desk in the office, still cursing blogger when the door bell rang.
Lickety split, the sweet dog we adopted turned into the Hound from Hell, running and throwing herself at front door to protect her meal tickets from ringing door bell which only I and said dog can hear! (Whew...out of breath...run on sentence!)
But...Hubby can hear Hound from Hell though...
I stay, bottom firmly planted to my chair, while Hubby answers door.
He says..."It's a girl scout!"
I, who have not eaten anything fun in weeks, weak from fighting off brownies and sore from Pilates answer " Tell Satan's Spawn to move along!"
To which my husband answers his usual answer..."WWWWWHHHHHAAAAATTTTT?
So like a person who is weak from hunger and lacking any God given sense...I yell
"Tell Satan's Spawn to move along!" just as my Hubby is opening the door.

Little girl scout couldn't decide if she was more afraid of actual Hound of Hell in front of her or Unimaginable Scary Lady in the other room!
Hubby takes forever telling her "No, thanks!" because... he wasn't telling her "No, thanks!"
It would seem sweet girl scout's father was standing right beside his sweet daughter and he wasn't amused by me at all! So, My Hubby being of good sound diplomatic mind bought two boxes!!!

Two boxes that I will eat...I am sure!
However, I might get to keep living in the neighborhood!

...Oops! Great effort though! I can never turn them away either!

LoLo said...

haha! I bought two boxes from my cousin, mainly because I wanted to support her. Although there are several boxes that are weight watcher friendly:) Hope all is well and pilates is going great!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Kat's daughter nabbed me last time I was there. I mean, you're sitting there in someone elses house eating their food... like you can say no to their kid selling cookies?

Diane said...

Oh, God... it's peanut butter Tagalong time... I cannot resist them. Boxes... I have eaten whole boxes in the past (of course, there's only, like, 6 cookies per box, so it's not THAT bad... right?). They never come to the house, though, so I'll have go search me out a little Satan's Spawn... maybe in front of Target... I need me some Tagalongs now...

Bee and Rose said...

HAHAHAHA...I was approached by a cute little spawn of Satan at Irish dance...She tried to hypnotize me with her cuteness and I wasn't having it...no, I WAS NOT having it...then she handed me the stupid order form and I ordered 7 boxes...

Z's Mom said...

HAHAHAHAHA.....that is SOOOOOO funny!!!!!

Yeah, I've already ordered 6 boxes to support 2 girl scouts and still have 1 more girl to order from......I'm such a larda$$....

Nicole said...

Were they thin mints?! I could eat box after box. They are so gooooood and even better straight from the freezer!

Scary Mommy said...

LOL! I used to LOVE Samoas, but the last time I had them I wasn't impressed. I may need to give them another try!

Brenda said...

Send the little Spawns my way...I love me some Girl Scout cookies!

Dysd Housewife said...

Guilt. It's guilt commerce I say!!

Jennifer said...

LOL Ronda!

I never met a Thin Mint I didn't like...

Kelly said...

So funny!! Advise from a "cookie mom"; if you know the little girl (neighborhood kid, etc.) Call them and tell them you want to change your order to buy for the military. They'll still hit you up for the $, but you won't be stuck with 2 boxes of cookies staring you down and calling to you. They ship off to the troops in Iraq.

Ronda's Rants said...

Great idea...I will see if I can approach them ...maybe they haven't taken out a restraining order!
Thanks!

Debbie said...

What is the world coming to when you can't even call a girl scout Satan's Spawn without fear of repercussions? I tell you, this PC stuff has gone overboard.

Blicky Kitty said...

Haha that's all part of the plot. They don't want you to know about the Satan Spawn thing. :) They just use cuteness and cookies to fool you.. My pilates routine is powered by cookies. I am such a serious pilates nerd that even my teacher shakes her head. The soreness goes away and gets replaced with a phenomenon known as Wonder Woman.

Butterfly Kisses said...

I know it's hard to turn away those cookies. And the little girls have to be so darn cute. That doesn't help any!

Happy MOnday!

Jeanne said...

This is so my life....

Lauren said...

OMG I would say and behave the same way. I'm so glad I'm know I'm normal now ;)

Karyn said...

Oh Ronda, never a dull moment...
I am still laughing! xo

Jenni Jiggety said...

I just ordered 4 boxes...I can't help myself!

MoziEsmé said...

Small sacrifice for the privilege of being able to keep living... Poor you having to eat those cookies :)

SabrinaT said...

I bought a box, then received a notice that said box was sold to me illegally.. I just wanted some lemonades..

Teri said...

After years of denying my deep longing for these cookies, I willingly give in now. Oh, the sweet bliss of Girl Scout cookies. Between all the "I will buy something from your daughter" promises, I am sure I will come away with at least 20 boxes. Sugar rush, here I come.
