As if Christmas wasn't assault enough on my diet, now there are Girl Scout Cookies! I got got at the Wag-a-Bag, and, again, at Walmart. They are $3.50 a box this year!
I suppose I sound like a cantankerous crone when I say, I remember them at $2.00 a box.
And, you know what? They don't have that cool deal any more whereby if a girl sells x number of cookies, she gets to go to camp at a vastly reduced cost.
Do you know that the troop only gets thirty cents a box? I guess the manufacturer gets most of it, and Girl Scout Headquarters, the rest.
Oh...and to the people in the house on the corner: putting out a huge sign saying "GIRL SCOUT COOKIES SOLD HERE" is not going to work on me. Girl Scouts has become much too much of a "feel-good" organization as it is. Get your lazy butt and your daughter's lazy butt out of the sack and out in front of Walmart or somewhere, and SELL those things!
