One of the best times of year...

Is it Christmas? Hannukah? Thanksgiving? Fourth of July? Superbowl? The Return of Kim Bauer day?

NO! It's Girl Scout Cookie season and they arrived today! Yes it's those oh so crunchy, delictibly creamy, citrus sweet Lemon Creams! The mouthwatering, crisp chocolate goodness of the Thin Mints! And my personal favorites, the thick, creamy chocolate and peanut buttery yumminess of the Peanut Butter Patties! It's the time of year to throw the diet and gym membership out the window and snuggle up on the couch with a fire, a quilt, a glass of milk, and a freshly bought box of the most scrumpcious cookies known to man.

So when you see those sweethearts in their cute little green uniforms marching up your walkway to your front door, open it, smile, and just hand over your wallet saying "Give me what you've got and then I'll order a dozen more." When you see their little card table in front of the grocery store and they ask "Would you like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies?" say "Absolutely! I don't need those fruits, veggies, and low-fat sources of protein! I need all the Shortbread boxes you have!"

Who cares that they're like 100 calories a cookie! Ignore the calories! You can't put a price on this much happiness.
