I Stalk Little Girls

I'm ashamed to admit it, but it's true. I like to stalk them online to find out where they are and then track them down to meet in person. C'mon - admit that you're into it, too. 

No? Too creepy? Okay, then maybe I should clarify before I have to join Pedofiles Anonymous and go door-to-door through Georgetown introducing myself to neighbors...

My name is Sally, and I'm a Girl Scout Cookie-aholic.

Every spring, I force myself into a full-on cookie coma... completely self-induced and utterly horrific. I don't know what it is about those little morsels of heaven, but I lose all self control and somehow justify eating 8 cookies in one sitting. Maybe it's because I know that I can only have them for a limited amount of time? Maybe it's because the packaging makes them so easy to grab? Maybe it's because sweet little Girl Scouts lace them with crack?? I don't know what it is about them, but I... CANNOT... STOP!  

In fact, just the other day, Liv + I had a G-chat exchange that went like this...

me: must.stop.eating.girl.scout.cookies
  which i typed as i added the next girl scout cookie sale at safeway to my outlook calendar
4:26 PM Olivia: see - you haven't even bought any yet have you?
  from the troop you've been stalking
 me: nope
 Olivia: which by the way, there is a box of thin mints and samoas over my left shoulder on this file cabinet behind me that you know who brought in
  want any?
4:27 PM me: mother effer
  of course i want a samoa
  but i've had 5 thin mints and 3 do-si-dos already
 Olivia: so is that a yes? want me to get you one
 me: yes. but just one.

Seriously, what is wrong with me? I'll analyze this problem later - gotta go meet Troop #3613 at Safeway.


  1. Damn those girls scouts and their cookies! What I hate is that in our area, they deliver them right around Halloween. Isn't that overkill?

  2. Yum! Now I want a Samoa too. I haven't heard about any Girl Scout cookie sales but maybe I need to get on the stalker bandwagon :)

  3. tagalongs are full of msg and crack. although it hasn't been scientifically proven, i'm pretty convinced it's true. i could (read: have) eat a whole box at once without stopping.

  4. I have the same addiction! As my husband and I were leaving Lowe's, I spied a table of girl scouts with cookies on the spot. I told him we had to buy at least 2 boxes because the poor girls seemed shy and weren't speaking up. We HAD to help them! I came home with two yummy boxes of do-si-dos and samoas...mmm!
