5 Flights for Cookies?

Today was a big day in the office…

Girl Scout cookies were delivered!

And not being one to feed my own pet peeve, I decided to walk down the 5 floors in the stairwell…opting out of the elevator.

The lady offers me a box, which I turn down. But then she says, “Well honey, you ordered the most out of anyone, so you need the box!”

What???


How is 5 boxes of girl scout cookies a lot?? I already had to cut down from the 7 or 8 I got last year.

Think about it people. They need to last you a good 6 months!

So whatever. I got my cookies and realized I should probably walk back UP the 5 floors to my office.

…still trying to catch my breath.

So I do recommend taking the elevator if it’s more than a floor or two. Just saying.

And although this is a whole other HUGE blog post in itself, I just want to point out that I ordered Thin Mints, Trefoils, Tag-a-longs, and Thanks-a-Lot.

NOT Thin Mints, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Patties, and Thanks-a-Lot.

Apparently it’s a regional thing. I have the research. Because it seems that Houston and Ft. Worth use one set of names…Dallas and San Antonio use another. And it’s all because of a little something we call competing girl scout cookie bakeries. Who knew?

They also call Samoas “Carmel deLites” here. Tragic and WRONG.

  1. I totally agree with you about the different names…I grew up with the same names you did. Caramel Delights??? Please!

    PS – I think I ordered 7 boxes this year :)

  2. Ohh! That means I should be getting a knock on the door from the ten year old across the street any day now!! Maybe I should finally polish off the box of thin mints and Carmel Delights in my freezer from LAST year. And yes, they are still good!
